The 34-year-old is also the first woman cricketer to cross the milestone of 6,000 runs in the 50-over format.

She also brought up her 49th half-century, her third of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

In case you don't know who Mithali Raj is, here are 8 quick facts about her.

AS she scored her 34th run against Australia, she overtook Charlotte Edwards (5992) to be on the top list of highest run scorers. Apparently, Mithali also became the first female batter to cross 6000-run mark in ODIs.

Raj, who made her worldwide debut at the age of just 17, against Ireland in 1999, immediately made an impact by scoring a hundred in her first game in national colours.

In the domestic circuit, she plays for Railways. Mitali Raj made the headlines again where she has scored 214 against England at Taunton in a Test match. Prior to breaking this, Mithali had created another record of scoring seven consecutive half-centuries in ODIs. With 328 runs, she is now the second highest run-scorer of the tournament, averaging over 100.

She said: "Lanning has all the shots, and the form she is in at the moment surely will only take her another four or five years to break that record. Her longevity and resilence to carry on is an inspiration for both men and women", said Gavaskar. Though she bid goodbye to textbooks soon after completing her degree, Mithali started writing one glorious chapter after another on the cricket field, the most glittering of which came at Bristol on Wednesday.

In 2003, Raj received the Arjuna award for her outstanding performance in cricket.

"As a captain and player I look for the team to do well and that we perform better than the last World Cup".
