(G.N.S) Dt. 12
The 38-year-old Mithali Raj, who leads the Indian ODI team, became the first Indian woman cricketer and second internationally to complete 10,000 runs across all formats.
Mithali Raj achieved the feat with a boundary off Anne Bosch in the 28th over of India’s innings during the ongoing third ODI against South Africa.
But after reaching the milestone, Mitahli departed in the next ball, flicking a Bosch delivery straight to Mignon du Preez at midwicket. She made 36 runs off 50 balls and hit five boundaries in the process.
“What a champion cricketer! First Indian woman batter to score 10K international runs. Take a bow, @M_Raj03,” the BCCI tweeted.
