Mithali Raj has five one-day international centuries

India captain Mithali Raj has become the leading run-scorer in women’s one-day international cricket.

Raj passed former England women’s captain Charlotte Edwards’ tally of 5,992 by reaching 34 not out in the World Cup group game against Australia at Bristol on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old, who made her debut in 1999, is playing her 183rd ODI. She has also played 10 Tests and 63 Twenty20s.

Edwards retired in May 2016 after playing 191 ODIs.

“I don’t think Mitahli Raj gets the credit she deserves at times,” Edwards said.

“She is a quality player. The big hitters gets the plaudits, but to average over 50 in ODI cricket is an outstanding achievement.”
