Indian Cricket Team has qualified for the semi-final of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 for the first time since 2010. Team India has beaten New Zealand by 186 runs in the final group game.
Yet again, captain Mithali Raj’s 109 runs have enabled her to create one record during the tournament. Not only did the Indian captain Raj made her sixth ODI century but she also scored her 10th 50-plus score in the calendar year of 2017, which is the most by a batswoman in a single calendar!
Raj had seven consecutive fifty-plus scores earlier this year and then added three more to make them 10 which is one more than the previous record held by Ellyse Perry who made nine scores of fifty-plus in 2016.
