Though India might have slumped to an eight-wicket loss to Australia in their penultimate round-robin clash of the ICC Women’s World Cup, skipper Mithali Raj was a shining star during the match as she became the all-time highest run-getter in the history of women’s one-day internationals at the County Ground, Bristol.

The 34-year-old scripted history on Wednesday as she surpassed former England star Charlotte Edwards’ record to become the first to reach 6,000 runs in ODIs.

Mithali, who smashed 69 runs in the group game against Australia, overtook Edwards (5992) after scoring her 34th run and reached the landmark in her 183rd ODI, taking 164 innings – 16 less than the former England player.

As soon as Mithali reached the feat, the cricket fraternity came in unison to praise and congratulate Mithali on achieving the milestone.
