Mithali Raj with 6028 runs has now become the highest run scorer of all-time in women's one-day internationals.

Raj was the captain of the Indian team that reached final of the Women's World Cup final in 2005, but were beaten by mighty Australia. Mithali Raj made her debut with an unbeaten 114 against Ireland at Milton Keynes on June 26, 1999. Overall, she has been not out 47 times, which is 15 more than any other player in women's ODIs.

Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli congratulated Mithali on achieving this feat.

Her biggest strength is her strike rate, which stayed in the high 80s throughout.

At the age of 19, Raj smashed 214 against England at Taunton in a Test match, which was the highest ever individual Test score until Pakistan's Kiran Baluch in slammed 242 against West Indies in 2004. "Her longevity and resilence to carry on is an inspiration for both men and women", said Gavaskar. Raut brought up her century with a single to the leg side, celebrating with a leap halfway through her run, and Harmanpreet Kaur got down on one knee to smash a six over mid-wicket.
