India captain Mithali Raj became the most prolific run-scorer in Women's one-day global cricket when she overtook former England skipper Charlotte Edwards.

Mithali Raj continued her brilliant run of form as she hit 109 off 123 deliveries against New Zealand in a must-win ICC Women's World Cup encounter in Derby on Saturday.

Krishnamurthy was there to give impetus to the Indian innings towards the close and she was by far the most aggressive batswoman as she was always looking for big shots.

The 34-year-old cricketer started her global career in 1999 with a match against Ireland.

"You sort of forget she is 16".

A hallmark of Raj's prolific career has been her consistency.

Ahead of their match against New Zealand on 18th July, Mithali Raj said that girls are talented but they need to overcome past to losses.

After February 7, 2017, she has scored 7 consecutive fifties in one-day internationals which are greatest ever in women cricket. It was only the previous match that she broke the record of former England player Charlotte Edwards and became the highest run scorer in Women's ODI and also reached 6,000 ODI runs. Due to her extraordinary performance, she is often called the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian Women Cricket team.
