Indian women's cricket team skipper Mithali Raj on Wednesday surpassed former England captain Charlotte Edwards to become the highest run-scorer in the One-Day Internationals (ODI) at the Bristol County Ground here. India needs to win at;east one out of the two matches against Australi and New Zealand to go through to the semi-finals. "It's important that we need to post a total, which we've not been doing that well in the last three games that India has played". "The best cricket that we can play is there, so hopefully it will come against Australia", said Pandey.

Only the third player in the history of the game to average over 50.

"I don't think the pressure is more than any other game", Lanning said.

Australia opted - as it has done throughout the tournament - to open with spin, and Lanning's decision paid off nearly immediately. "Congratulations legend Mithali Raj @M_Raj03 on becoming the highest run scorer in Women ODIs.All time great".

Both started slowly with India taking 18 overs to reach 50, but they accelerated expertly in a 157-run partnership.

Hudek remained combative during the entire diverted flight back to Seattle, and upon landing was arrested by police. Hudek had been traveling on a "dependent pass", the complaint said. "He started yelling for help", Jones said.


She became the first woman to 6,000 ODI runs in far more emphatic fashion, striking a big six over the head of Australian leg-spinner Kristen Beams, later bringing up her 49th half-century from 96 deliveries.

Megan Schutt (2-52) and Ellyse Perry (2-37) were the pick of the Aussie bowlers.

Australian team got a ideal start, Bolton and Mooney score 62 runs from their partnership. When India toured England in 2012, she was at the forefront of the visitors' creditable show, scoring 251 runs at an average of 83.66.

But from there on Australia, and particularly Lanning, was in complete control. Perry also scores an unbeaten half-century.

Despite losing her captaincy temporarily, Mithali got her captain's arm-band back in a few years and has already led India in 106 ODIs.
