Quiet accumulator Mithali Raj of India

Mithali Raj has become the highest run scorer in women's one-day worldwide history, surpassing 6,000 ODI runs on Wednesday morning against Australia in Bristol.

"It was a nice way to bounce back from our last game".

"It's going OK, I've had a couple of days off and we'll keep assessing but the plan is to play tomorrow", she said.

Charlotte Edwards' scored 5,992 runs during her illustrious career and Indian Women Cricket Team Captain Mitalli Raj now has scored 5,959.

India's Mithali Raj became the greatest run scorer in ODI women's history. Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Acting President C.K. Khanna congratulated the Indian women's team skipper for her achievement. "They know how hard it is to score runs and how hard it is to stay at the top of your game for so long", said Gavaskar.

Raj, who made her worldwide debut at the age of just 17, against Ireland in 1999, immediately made an impact by scoring a hundred in her first game in national colours. Bowling: ML Schutt 10-0-52-2, A Gardner 10-1-48-1, JL Jonassen 10-1-38-0, EA Perry 10-0-37-2, KM Beams 9-0-43-1, EJ Villani 1-0-8-0.

Nicole Bolton (36) and Beth Mooney (45) got Australia's chase off to a solid start with an opening stand of 62, before Poonam got the breakthrough as Bolton went for a big sweep.

Raj's average against Sri Lanka - the highest, by far, for any player with 500-plus runs against a team in women's ODIs.

But from there on Australia, and particularly Lanning, was in complete control. She scored nine centuries and 46 half-centuries during her career, her highest being an unbeaten 173 against Ireland. The openers aimed to take her out of the equation, striking her for three leg-side fours in her first over. But, she has denied in interviews when her personality is concerned to any male Indian cricketer whether it's Tendulkar or "Captain Cool" MS Dhoni.

"Obviously we now have a decider ahead against New Zealand to get to the semi-finals". We made a decision to take on the bowling, and we did that pretty well today.
