Women’s ODI: India Beat England by 4 Wickets; Mithali Raj Becomes Leading Run Scorer Across Formats
New Delhi: India captain Mithali Raj became the highest run-getter in women’s cricket across formats. She achieved the feat during the third and final inconsequential ODI against hosts England while chasing 220 for a consolation win.
Skipper Mithali Raj struck her third consecutive half-century as India avoided a series clean sweep, defeating England by four wickets in the rain-curtailed third and final Women’s One-day International, here on Saturday.
Chasing 220 to win in 47 overs, India earned a consolation win with three balls to spare with Mithali ending unbeaten at 75 off 86 balls.
It was India’s first win on the tour. They drew the one-off Test before losing the first two ODIs.
Both teams will now face off in a three-match Twenty20 International series.
