Today, Mithali Raj has proved that she is a run-machine. She has made India proud by registering a new world record on her name; the Captain of Women’s Cricket team has broken Charlotte Edwards’ (England) record to become the leading run-getter in women’s ODIs.
Looks as if England tournament has proved to be lucky for Mithali; she smashed this record today in her match against Australia. After today’s match, the total number of runs in Mithali’s kitty is 6028. With this, she has also became the first woman to score 6000 runs.
Charlotte Edwards was on the first position with 5992 runs and Mithali Raj was just 33 runs short. In today’s match, Mithali made it possible and got whistles and applauds on her 34th run. We can proudly say that our Indian lady is on top of this prestigious list.
Her cool and calm attitude is what has made her achieve this feat; remember the way she was reading a book before batting? This difference has led her towards victory. Cricketers congratulated Mithali for creating history in Women’s cricket.
