India women cricket team’s captain and one of the most technically batters in the history of women’s cricket, Mithali Raj, scripted history on Wednesday as she became the all-time leading run-getter in women’s one-day internationals (ODIs).
Mithali overtook England’s Charlotte Edwards, who scored 5992 runs in ODI cricket, after scoring her 34th run against Australia in Bristol. The Indian captain reached the landmark in her 183rd ODI, taking 164 innings – 16 less than Charlotte.
Here are some of the best tweets by Indian cricketers:
