Ind storm into semis with power packed performance by Mithali Raj

15 July 2017, 07:37 | Megan Pierce

New Zealand won the toss and put India to bat in their do-or-die clash of the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup at the County Cricket Ground in Derby on Saturday.

Rao, who sent a congratulatory message to Raj, said she made the country proud with her achievement, a release from his office said.

Mithali had earlier became the first woman in cricket history to hit seven consecutive fifties in ODIs. Left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad (5/15) was the peak of the bowlers with her five-wicket haul, while Deepti Sharma (2/26) scalped two and Jhulan Goswami (1/14), Shikha Pandey (1/12) and Poonam Yadav (1/12) picked one each respectively.

Mithali broke the barrier in women's cricket because she happens to be the only Asian in the list of top-10 run-scorers. India and New Zealand are in a do or die situation. Despite becoming the first Indian cricketer to score more than 1,000 runs in World Cup events she is the fifth batter to do so.

India skipper Mithali Raj has demanded improvement from her troops and believes the ability to cope with the pressure of a must-win game will be the deciding factor. In their last match at Bristol, Australia defeated them by eight wickets, despite a gritty century by Punam Raut and a record-breaking 69 from skipper Mithali Raj.

However, New Zealand's plans to run through the Indian middle order were dashed as Veda Krishnamurthy counterattacked, with Raj continuing to play sheet anchor's role from the other end. 7 runs later, she became the first to score 6,000 runs and she did that with a six down town. It came in a must-win game, and she grabbed it with both hands. Indian women have shattered many records and earned a good name for the country.
