Mithali Raj broke Charlotte Edwards’ record in her 317th match, taking over the record, which stood for 5 years.
India’s captain Mithali Raj has always grabbed the headlines as far as records are concerned. The ODI captain created history during the ongoing 3rd ODI against England Women on Saturday by becoming the leading run-scorer across all formats in women’s international cricket, beating Charlotte Edwards who was the previous holder of the record.
Mithali reached the 10,000-run mark in the third ODI of the home series against South Africa earlier this year. Former England captain Edwards amassed a total of 10,273 runs in 309 matches. Mithali did it in her 317th match, taking over the record, which stood for 5 years.
