Mithali Raj new record: Mithali Raj becomes highest run scorer in Womens ODI cricket
- Mithali Raj holds the record for most runs in women’s international cricket
- Mithali Raj overtakes former England captain Charlotte Edwards
- Sachin Tendulkar is the highest run scorer in men’s cricket
Worcester: Mithali Raj, the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, made a world record in the third ODI against England on Saturday. Mithali Raj has become the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket. Now if in such a situation she is called Sachin Tendulkar of women’s cricket, then it will not be wrong.
Actually, the record of scoring the most international runs in men’s cricket is held by Sachin Tendulkar (34357 runs). At the same time, this record has been registered in the name of Mithali Raj (10278 *) in women’s cricket. It is noteworthy that both Sachin Tendulkar and Mithali Raj made their debut for India at the age of 16 years and 205 days. Both performed brilliantly in their respective fields and set the record for the most runs in men’s and women’s international cricket respectively.
Mithali Raj surpassed former England women’s captain Charlotte Edwards to achieve this feat. Earlier, the record for the highest run scorer in women’s international cricket was held by former England captain Charlotte Edwards. Edwards had scored 10,273 runs in international cricket. Let us tell you that Charlotte Edwards and Mithali Raj are the only two batsmen in women’s cricket history who have crossed the 10,000-run mark. Mithali Raj has scored 669 runs in Tests, 2364 in T20 Internationals and 7244* in ODIs.
Let us tell you that the Indian women’s cricket team is chasing a target of 220 runs in the third ODI on Saturday. The Mithali Raj-led Indian women’s cricket team did not do well in England and has already suffered a 0-2 defeat in the three-match ODI series. Mithali Raj, however, performed exceptionally well individually and scored half-centuries in both the matches. Now it is expected that Mithali Raj will make this achievement memorable by playing match winning innings.
