Mithali Raj has authored a new chapter in the history Indian women’s cricket by becoming the 2nd woman cricketer in the world to score 5000 runs in one day international cricket.
It was with great delight and fervour that India welcomed the news of Mithali Raj becoming the second woman in the world to have scored 5000 runs in ODI cricket. She reached the record after her unbeaten 81 runs in the match against New Zealand where India was chasing a target of 220 runs. India also won the match by 8 wickets.
