Happy With Achievement, Unhappy With Defeat to Australia, says Mithali Raj

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). He wrote, "A great moment for Indian Cricket, Mithali Raj becomes the highest run scorer in Women's ODI Cricket History today". En route her knock of 69, she reached the coveted landmark of 6,000 runs in this format. "However, at no stage did she let it affect her as she schooled India on how to bat on a slow, low track". The cricketer did a major goof-up by posting cricketer Poonam Raut's picture in the congratulatory message for Mithali. The match against New Zealand is a virtual quarter-final as the victor will qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament.

She simply couldn't find the gaps as the dot balls kept on piling.

Australia: Meg Lanning (captain), Sarah Aley, Kristen Beams, Nicole Bolton, Alex Blackwell, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Belinda Vakarewa, Elyse Villani and Amanda-Jade Wellington. She scored nine centuries and 46 half-centuries during her career, her highest being an unbeaten 173 against Ireland.

That scenario would keep them in Bristol, where they've played four of their six matches, but finishing second or third would see the side move north to Derby. "As a team, we have to step up, as if we perform again like this it will not be enough", said the India skipper. "My game would have been much better than what it is or what it was", Mithali said.

GOP chairman plans to call on Donald Trump Jr
Trump". "We will subpoena him if necessary", Grassley said of Manafort during a conference call with reporters Wednesday. Trump also questioned whether Putin was really gunning for his victory, as USA intelligence agencies have concluded.

Losing wickets in clusters: Apart from the 157 run partnership stitched by Mithali Raj and Poonam Raut, there were no substantial partnerships and that led to the downfall of the eves. She was honoured to be recognised as one of the six Wisden India Cricketers of the Year for 2015. Once they were dismissed, Lanning and Perry completed the task with consummate ease. She has also played 10 Tests and 63 Twenty20s.

After a bright start against England in their opening game and winning easily against two Asian sub-continent opponents and a lowly West Indies, India's form dipped against South Africa.

Raj, who made her debut in 1999, was playing her 183rd ODI and has scored 6028 runs with the help of five centuries and 49 half-centuries.
