4 Reasons Why Mithali Raj Is An Absolute Rockstar

The name Mithali Raj has been synonymous with Indian women’s cricket for the longest time now. The 38-year-old is undoubtedly the greatest batter India has produced in women’s cricket, and has been a key contributor to the team’s success over the years.

As Raj completed 10,000 international runs during the third ODI against South Africa, we decided to take a look at a few milestones from her glorious career.

She’s been around for 22 years!

Raj first donned the India jersey back in 1999, and is the only player in the history of women’s cricket to have had a career that spans two decades. She is the only woman cricketer in the world to have played 200 one-day internationals.

She is a run machine

Mithali Raj is the world’s highest run-scorer in women’s ODI cricket, and the only player with over 6,000 runs. She is also India’s highest run-scorer in T20Is with 2,364 runs. In test matches, she is India’s only double centurion with a top score of 214.
Raj became the first player from India, and only the second in the world after England’s Charlotte Edwards, to notch up 10,000 international runs across formats.

The world’s youngest centurion

Mithali Raj was only 16 years and 205 days old when she hit 114 against Ireland on IN, NOT ON her international debut in 1999. The record still stands even after 22 years.

The world’s most experienced captain

India’s incumbent ODI captain has lead her side in 135 ODIs, more than any other captain in history. She is also the only captain to lead her team to two world cup finals.
