Mithali Raj’s classy 109 – her first century in more than three years and also the first-ever against a top-three nation – was a perfect lesson on batting

Mithali Raj is one of the finest players in Women's cricket who also became the top player in total runs scored in One Day Internationals recently.

The two veterans, who are more towards the end of their proud careers than the beginnings, have done more than anyone else to raise the profile of the women's game in India. Against Australia when she went at a strike rate of just over 60 runs per 100 balls, it was not because of want of ability to score quickly but because the situation demanded so.

5/15 Rajeshwari Gayakwad's figures in this match - India's best in the Women's World Cup.

Against the ongoing match against the White Ferns, Raj rescued the team in the virtual quarterfinal as opener Smriti Mandhana got out cheaply once again. India have 8 points from 6 matches while New Zealand have 7.

Indian skipper Mithali Raj was declared as the woman of the match. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match.

Katie Perkins (1) too was sent back quickly with Sharma cleaning her up as New Zealand lost half their side for 52/5 in the 19th over. The victor on 15th July and will get the last spot on the semi-final list.

At Bristol, they were defeated by a dominant Australia by eight wickets, despite a fighting century from Punam Raut, and a record breaking 69 from captain Mithali Raj.

India reached the World Cup final for the first time in 2005 under her leadership. Another greatest achievement is her above 50 averages in her career. As a 14-year-old, only 2 months after her provincial debut, she claimed 3 for 19 for the Wellington Blaze against Otago, as the Blaze claimed an emphatic 10-wicket victory to be crowned champions.
