Indian woman opener Deepti Sharma stormed herself into record books after slamming 188 against Ireland in an ODI match.

Deepti Sharma's score of 188, that came in 160 balls with the bonus of 27 fours and two sixes, is now the highest individual score by an Indian women's cricketer and the second highest in women's cricket after Belinda Clarke's 229 not out made in 1997 against Denmark women.

With four wins from four matches, India are the only unbeaten side in the tournament with wins over South Africa, Ireland (twice) and Zimbabwe.

In an association that lasted 45.3 overs, Deepti scored 188 - the second highest individual score in women's cricket - while Poonam Raut retired out on 109.

India's Poonam Raut, who along with Deepti Sharma smashed centuries against Ireland and combined in a stand of 320 runs to record the highest partnership in women's one-day global, said she had no idea about the milestone that they had created. It was the tenth-highest team total in the format, as they became the sixth team to cross the 350-run mark after Australia, England, New Zealand, Netherlands Women and West Indies Women.

India Women are participating in a quadrangular ODI series in South Africa that features, apart from the hosts South Africa Women, teams of Zimbabwe and Ireland.

Poonam Raut scored 109 off 116 balls for the Indian women's cricket team.

The BCCI has congratulated the Indian women's team for their record-breaking spree in the ongoing women's quadrangular series in South Africa. It is the first time that the Women's ODIs have witnessed a 300 or more runs stand.

The score helped India beat Ireland by a mammoth 249 runs.

"The Indian Women's Team have not only been consistent in the ongoing series but they have dominated their opposition right from the start". The massive win was aided by openers Deepti Sharma and Punam Raut, who set the record of a 320-run opening stand before Sharma got knocked out in the 46th over.
