"However, at no stage did she let it affect her as she schooled India on how to bat on a slow, low track". So, as they say, the rest is history. Kohli wrote: "A great moment for Indian Cricket, Mithali Raj becomes the highest run scorer in Women's ODI Cricket History today". Sehwag tweeted, "The whole of India is super proud of @M_Raj03 's spectacular achievement of becoming the all time leading scorer in the world in Women ODI's (sic)". The fact that she would be the record-breaker in cricket, however, was predicted when she was just 10 years old.

Later, she along with her family moved to Hyderabad.

Not that her batting average of over 50 leaves any doubts about her consistency at the worldwide level. Such blunders can easily send a wrong signal to women cricketers, especially in India, where the male cricketers enjoy demigod status.

However, it was the captain of the India men's team, Virat Kohli, who made a major blunder while congratulating the cricketer on Facebook.

India needed in-form Raj in the 2002 World Cup, but the team's chances got hampered when she fell sick during the tournament. No one has more ODI fifties than her. For it was apparent, right from the start that she was special.

It's one of the easiest pop quiz questions that was ever asked. When Raj chose to play cricket, people started raising questions.

It is a view shared by Sudha Shah, who has played 59 Tests for India. What if she gets an injury on her face, who will marry her? But her parents never bothered about these comments and supported her decision. He taught her the most important lesson that talent alone wasn't enough for greatness. "Her coach Sampath Kumar is the reason she is where she is now". "She has always been very different, very focussed".

Australia was much improved in their game against India on Wednesday, turning around a poor bowling performance against England.

Perhaps most significantly, Mithali has fulfilled every expectation that was placed on her young shoulders when she first burst onto the scene as a teenager. And there was no looking back after that. She scored nine centuries and 46 half-centuries during her career, her highest being an unbeaten 173 against Ireland.

Despite messages like these, Mithali's message to her players was stern: that if the team continued to play the way it did against South Africa (lost by 115 runs) and Australia (lost by 8 wickets), India can not make it to the semifinals.
