Mithali Raj becomes highest run scorer in ODI

Aussies won't feel pressure, says Lanning

Raj needed just 34 runs to overtake former England captain Charlotte Edwards on the all-time ODI run-scoring charts and her opportunity at the crease came only, with opener Smriti Mandhana dismissed for three after Australia sent their opponents in. Having lost the chance to hold on to the silverware in 2005, where Mithali-led India lost to Australia in the final, she doesn't want to let this opportunity go. Not only Tendulkar but, Gautam Gambhir, Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Mohammad Kaif too wished Mithali for her unique feat.

"It was a nice way to bounce back from our last game". We have the team to do it and this team doesn't revolve around the performance of one or two players. "But what is important is that I score runs for my team" Mithali said on her achievement.

Many local shopping malls are going to have to grapple with the loss of one more retailer: Gymboree. The chain has suffered thanks to declining mall traffic, online competition and fixed rent costs.

Australia opted - as it has done throughout the tournament - to open with spin, and Lanning's decision paid off nearly immediately. In 2013, she became the top cricketer in the ODI chart.

Mithali Raj became the first women's player to reach 6000 ODI runs.

Police and law enforcement agencies have surrounded the area to trace the miscreants involved in the terrorist attack. According to Police, over twelve persons including police personnel were also injured in the blast.

After hitting a six at Kristen Beams' ball, Raj scored 6028 runs, scoring 49 half centuries and 5 centuries in ODI matches.

Beth Mooney and Nicole Bolton had 44 dots in the Power Play compared to India's 47, but their confidence in keeping the scoreboard ticking set the platform for a push. With 328 runs, she is now the second highest run-scorer of the tournament, averaging over 100.

At rail stations Monday morning, some commuters were unaware that their New Jersey Transit tickets would be cross-honored by PATH. Amtrak officials have said its two tubes will need to be closed for repairs within the next 15 years, possibly sooner.

But from there on Australia, and particularly Lanning, was in complete control. Perry's innings was also her fourth successive 50 and the 22nd time she's scored a half-century in 89 ODIs. "If we're playing Australia and we look forward to good cricket and we're aiming to beat them, then it requires us to be at our best in all departments", she added. However, even against the formidable England line-up consisting Katherine Brunt and Isa Guha, she composed a redoubtable fifty. As a team, we have to step up, as if we perform again like this it will not be enough. We made a decision to take on the bowling, and we did that pretty well today.
