Australia assured itself of advancing along with England and South Africa, who won their respective matches against New Zealand and Sri Lanka on Wednesday, with the India-New Zealand match on Saturday now a virtual quarterfinal. In 2015, Raj was awarded with the fourth highest civilian award in India - the Padma Shri. However, Kohli made a mistake in his FB post. Australia began the squeeze early, and never really let go. For the winning team MM Lanning remained not out on 76 while NE Bolton (36) and BL Mooney (45) were the other notable contributors.
India's Mithali Raj became the greatest run scorer in ODI women's history.
The elegant batter's ability to notch up big scores then came to the fore when she crunched an unbeaten 214 against England in Taunton in August 2002.
As an eight-year-old, Raj reportedly loved to sleep.
Raj was reprieved by the DRS umpire for 11 after Hawkeye showed Jess Jonassen's delivery would have missed the stumps after thumping her on the front pad. However the nature of it India had to score above 250 to at least make a match out of it.
She crossed the 6000-run milestone against Australia during the ICC Worl Cup match against Australia. Punam Raut played well and scored 106 runs before caught off by Perry.
Mithali was dismissed on 69 by Kristen Beams in the 41st over as India went two down for 166. Mooney was run out for 40 following a superb direct hit from Deepti Sharma.
Two records on one day, not a bad day in office right?
After consecutive 100-run stands, the Indian openers have had a torrid time. Left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht was introduced into the attack and Bolton exploded with three back-to-back fours.
But that brought Raj to the crease, and she and Raut put on 157 runs for the second wicket before the subcontinent side fell away late on.style="text-align: center;"
