On Wednesday, it was a mixed feeling for Indian cricket fans as Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj crossed the 6,000-run barrier and in the process surpassed the record of England cricketer Charlotte Edwards (5992 runs).

However, it wasn't the most productive of all phases for India. But the team is coming off consecutive and comprehensive losses, to South Africa and Australia. Despite becoming the first Indian cricketer to score more than 1,000 runs in World Cup events she is the fifth batter to do so.

Her ten wickets have come at 16 runs apiece, at an economy of only four to the over, the same as her career economy, which is superb for a leg spinner at this level, let alone at her age. She found an able ally in Harmanpreet, who made a crucial contribution despite her slow batting. Their partnership has also gone beyond the 100-run mark with Krishnamurthy being the aggressor.

Had we lost my wicket, the whole responsibility would be on the middle order, which hasn't been performing.

Mithali Raj registered her sixth ODI hundred in India's convincing victory.

Mithali averages 75.72 runs in India's wins, the highest among players with 500-plus runs in wins.

According to the reports, in 1997, Debbie Hockley also scored eight fifty-plus scores in ODIs and that record was not broken for 19 years until Perry made nine scores. She scored an unbeaten 114 runs on her debut.
