The moment 'Legend' Mithali Raj became all-time top-scorer in women's ODI cricket

Indian cricket captain Mithali Raj broke the record for runs in women's One Day Internationals taking her total to 6,028 after hitting 69 in the World Cup match with Australia

Aussies won't feel pressure, says Lanning

During the course of her innings, Mithali went past England cricketer Charlotte Edwards tally of 5992 runs in 191 matches.

The skipper's gutsy 69 was instrumental in India's 226/7 in a crucial Women's World Cup match against Australia.

Mithali Raj became the first women's player to reach 6000 ODI runs.

She has been in tremendous form throughout the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in England.

Mitali Raj is not only a good One day or test player but also has also scored 1,708 runs in Twenty20 Internationals at an impressive average of 37.95. She's in striking distance of another record of Edwards, who led her England team out 117 times- a record in Women's cricket.

Cheers and applauds for the Indian woman cricket team echoed in a stadium at Bristol.

Australia captain Meg Lanning had a normal routine as she slammed her 11th ODI fifty.

India have a tough road ahead with Mithali Raj and her troops now facing a do or die game against New Zealand on Saturday.

Having played the lower ranked sides during the opening rounds, both nations started the tournament strong but have dipped in more recent matches with both registering their first losses in their most recent matches.

The duo made it a decent batting Power Play, adding 33, before Raj fell to the temptation and pressure to up the ante, handing Beams a return catch. Not many people know that she is a part-time leg-break bowler too. However, she was also fond of classical dancing and trained in Bharat Natyam for eight years before finally choosing cricket.

Legend Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli joined the chorus of top Indian cricketers in congratulating Mithali Raj on fabulous achievement and making the nation proud.

Apart from this, Mithali has the maximum number of ODI half-centuries (49) to her name.
