India skipper Mithali Raj scores record-breaking sixth ODI ton

15 Juillet 2017

She has not only passed the highest score 5992 of Charlotte Edwards but has also become the first women to cross 6000 runs in women cricket. A loss against White Ferns will shatter India's semi-final hopes at the ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

There are too many records against her name.

Preview: The Indian women face a do-or-die situation to seal the last semi-final spot at the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup when they face a formidable New Zealand in their final group tie at The County Ground here on Saturday. One of the most stunning records was that broken by Mithali Raj.

The 34-year-old cricketer started her worldwide career in 1999 with a match against Ireland. The tournament has been brilliant for the players when it comes to individual achievements as well.

State Street Corp Acquires 1586531 Shares of WPX Energy, Inc. (NYSE:WPX)
Analysts are expecting EPS growth rates to be at 34.10% this quarter and EPS estimate for next year reflect 63.00% growth rate. With that said, researchers took a deep dive into the hotly debated question: is it too early to buy WPX Energy, Inc.

"You sort of forget she is 16".

A hallmark of Raj's prolific career has been her consistency.

Sent into bat, India were reduced to 21 for 2 in the eighth over but a 132-run stand between Mithali (109) and Harmanpreet Kaur (60) for the third wicket brought them back into the match. The number of her fifties in one-day internationals is 49.

However, this knock was special as Raj notched up her 50th half century in ODIs, the first woman cricketer to reach this milestone in the history of the game. Due to her extraordinary performance, she is often called the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian Women Cricket team. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match. Goswami, ODI cricket's leading wicket taker, is five runs short of joining the select list of players with 1000 ODI runs and 100 wickets.
