Today, Mithali Raj in a match which was deciding for India to reach the Semi's Vs New Zealand in Women's World Cup scored a match winning century which became the 10th fifty-plus score in a calendar year which is the highest by any batswoman. Former Test captain Sunil Gavaskar said: "Mithali Raj is an inspiration and has carved a niche for herself".

Earlier after being put in to bat, Mithali (109 off 123 balls, 11x4) helped resurrect India's innings with two century stands - first a 132-run third wicket partnership with Harmanpreet Kaur (60 off 90, 7x4) and then joined forces with Veda Krishnamurthy (70 off 45, 7x4, 2x6) to add 108 runs for the fifth wicket.

Sheldon Silver's Corruption Conviction Has Been Overturned
The question presented to us, however, is not how a jury would likely view the evidence presented by the Government. Another part of the McDonnell case that might come into play is the role of low-key favors in Silver's conviction.

The 34-year-old, who made her debut at the age of 16, has often been called the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian women's cricket.

With so much riding on the match, it will be a test of India's character, one where they will have to show the fight they have been lacking in the last two games. There's going to be lot of reviews of our team because we were expected to make the semi-finals. Even in this match, scoring runs won't be an easy task. The tournament has been brilliant for the players when it comes to individual achievements as well. Mithali Raj had walked out in the middle after Smriti Mandhana fell on the cheap early in the innings and went on to stitch a 157-run partnership with Punam for the second wicket. "I am pleased with the kind of comeback the team has staged in the tournament".

Mithali also became the first player to complete 6000 runs in women's ODIs.

The Proteas ran through their batting line-up to notch up a 115-run win while defending champions Australia outplayed them in batting, bowling and fielding to claim an eight-wicket win. After starting the tournament on a promising note with four wins on the trot, India slumped to their second straight loss on Wednesday.
