Mithali Raj, the Indian women team's cricket captain, became the leading run-scorer in women's One-day Internationals during her innings of 69 against Australia in the ICC Women's ODI World Cup, surpassing England's Charlotte Edwards.

A glimpse of Mithali's awe-inspiring ODI career:

Career highlights

  • Made her ODI debut at the age of 16 years, 205 days vs Ireland in 1999.
  • Scored 114* on ODI debut -- the highest score by an Indian on debut and second highest by any player in this format at that time.
  • Mithali at 16 years, 205 days is still the youngest to score a hundred in women's ODIs.
  • Played 74 consecutive innings between 2000 and 2007 without scoring a duck -- the longest streak for any player at that time (since broken by Australia's Karen Rolton).
  • Played 109 consecutive matches between 2004 and 2013 -- the longest streak for any player in women's ODIs.
  • Has a career span of over 18 years -- the longest for an Indian player in this format.
  • Scored seven fifties on the trot this year -- the most any player has ever scored in consecutive innings in this format.
  • Has batted at every position from number 1 to 9 in women's ODIs.
  • Led India for the first time in 2004 vs the West Indies at the age of 21 years, 94 days to become the youngest captain for India in this format.
  • Led India in 106 ODIs winning 65 and losing 38 with three no result games (a win percentage of 61.32)
  • Has won 18 Woman of the Match awards -- the second most in women's ODIs after the West Indies' Stafanie Taylor (20). Among the Indians no one else has won more than six!
