Diana Hails Mithali for Becoming Highest Run-getter in ODIs

New Delhi: Former captain and COA member Diana Edulji on Wednesday congratulated current India skipper Mithali Raj on becoming the highest run-getter in women's ODI cricket, saying she is among the best the country has ever produced.

"It is a landmark day for India's women's cricket. First Jhulan Goswami became the leading wicket-taker in ODIs, now Mithali has broken Charlotte Edwards' record. It also shows that our women's game is on the up," Edulji said.

Mithali achieved the feat while batting against Australia in the Women's World Cup today.

While Mithali's ODI average is remarkably over 50, she has got some flak for her performance in the T20 format.

Edulji sees 34-year-old Mithali playing for another year before calling it a day.

"She has already said that it is going to be her last World Cup. Like Jhulan, she is also in the twilight of her career. I see her playing for at least another year," Edulji added
