IANS logoIANS 12-07-2017

"Congratulations @M_Raj03 for becoming the highest ever run scorer in the history of women's ODI cricket.We are proud of u," Mamata tweeted.

The India skipper got to the landmark by punching Australia's Ellyse Perry to the covers in their ongoing ICC Women's World Cup group match at Bristol on Wednesday.

Mithali broke another record when she became the first player in the women's game to notch 6000 ODI runs when she launched leg-spinner Kristen Beams over long on for a big six.
