Mithali Raj milestone: is already the best scorer in all forms of international women’s cricket, which is what she achieved in the England Tour earlier this year.
On Tuesday, Indian ODI captain Mithali Raj trailed 20,000 times in her cricket career. She accomplished this feat in the current first ODI of the three-player series against Australia at Harup Park in Mackay. The Indian captain played 61 times with 107 balls and helped the visiting team hit 225/8 of the 50 allocated pitches. Mithali is already the top scorer in the three competitions of women’s international cricket. In the England Tour earlier this year, Mitali was the top scorer in international cricket.
Mithali had hit 61 shots before, but Darcie Brown’s four goals helped Australia keep India at 225/8.
In addition to Mithali, Yastika Bhatia was able to participate in 35 games with the help of two borders. Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana were sent to the batsmen and started quickly when the opening duo hit 31 points in the first four games.
However, when Brown fired both Shafali (8) and Mandhana (16) in the sixth round and reduced India to 38/2, Australia came back.
Yastika and Mithali then met at the gate. Both batters made 77 times for the third wicket, but India prevailed. The team lost Bhatia (35)’s wicket on the 26th and surpassed Brown.
Deepti Sharma (9) was unable to leave any marks on the bat and gave Brown her fourth wicket, which India reduced to 129/4 in the 31st game.
Mithali may have hit 61 times, but her batting rate can be mentioned again because she got these hits from 107 balls, and her innings were finally completed by Sophie Molineux in the 38th inning.
Molineux caught Mithali by surprise, which brought Richa Ghosh and Pooja Vastrakar to the door. The low-level did not increase much, and finally India had to reluctantly accept it with a score of 225. In the final round, Richa Ghosh and Jhulan Goswami played 32 and 20 roles respectively.
