"Maybe, because she's got the all-round shots", Raj said when asked if she believed Lanning might one day pass her mark - which stood at 6028 at the end of Wednesday's game, but will eventually be much higher, given the 34-year-old intends to continue playing for another year or longer.
The cricketer got congratulatory wishes from both past and present members of the men's cricket team as well.
To be fair to the Indian captain Mithila Raj, she did make the point at press-conferences before the game that her focus would be on trying to win the crucial match against Australia after the loss to South Africa. However, destiny seemed to have had other plans for her. Mithali's father Dorai Raj, was an officer with the Indian Air Force and later joined the Andhra Bank, started taking his daughter to St John's coaching camp in Secunderabad when she was 10.
The Australians went out and put up some milestones of their own. Australia's Meg Lanning has the highest average of 54.12 followed by Ellyse Perry, who has an average of 50.
Lanning finished the game unbeaten on 67, one run shy of 3000 one-day worldwide runs.
Perry also improved with the ball, returning 2-37, capably supported by Megan Schutt with 2-52.
They continue to be the form bowling unit of the World Cup. The intent was missing and they also looked lacklustre and lacked the zing. But, during yesterday's match we saw Indian skipper Mithali Raj getting to a world record.
"If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even one that just dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match".
Cricket fans quickly identified the blunder
Under her leadership, India reached the final of the World Cup for the first time in 2005, where they lost to Australia.
All four matches will take place on Saturday to decide final standings.
"It's going to be a tough challenge no matter who it is you play or where you play".
Lanning said their formidable partnership came down to being relaxed and knowing each other's game.
"So that is something that Indian players in general really need to work on".
New Zealand Captain Suzie Bates top scored with 44 as they were bowled out for 209. "If we perform again like this, it will not be enough", Mithali said post-match on Wednesday.
New Zealand have some talented young bowlers and plenty of batting talent and would be confident of victory. It was the spinners who curated India's win against Pakistan.
