Stats - Mithali Raj becomes highest run-scorer in women's international cricket

A look at the India Women captain's batting numbers in a storied career

1 Mithali Raj became the leading run-getter in women's international cricket, going past Charlotte Edwards' tally of 10,273 runs. Raj and Edwards are the only players to scale the 10,000-run mark in women's international cricket.
7304 Runs aggregated by Raj in ODI cricket. No other player has managed to breach the 6,000-run milestone in women's ODIs. Raj is the only player with a batting average over 50 among the top ten run-getters in the format.
6015 Runs scored by Raj in 179 matches as captain in women's international cricket. Only Edwards, with 6,728 runs in 220 games, has scored more than Raj when leading the team. She also went past Belinda Clark's 83 wins as captain in Women's ODIs.
87 Scores of fifty-plus runs by Raj, including eight centuries, the most by any player in women's international cricket. She has 54 scores of fifty-plus as captain (5 hundreds, 49 fifties), also the most for any player while being in charge.
2924 Raj's runs against England, the most by any player against an opponent in women's international cricket. She has scored these runs across 81 innings, with 25 fifties and a century.
3613 Runs scored by Raj in international matches played in India. Only Edwards, with 4,490 runs in England, has scored more runs at home in women's international cricket than Raj.
214 Raj's highest score, against England in 2002 during the Test match at Taunton. It is the only double century by an Indian woman, and the fourth-highest individual score in women's international cricket.
935 Runs scored by Raj in international cricket in 2018, the most she has scored in any calendar year. The majority of those came in T20Is, as she scored 575 runs in 19 innings with seven fifties. She also made 360 runs in 11 ODIs.
700 Runs by Raj at the County Ground in Taunton, the most by her at any venue across the three formats in international cricket. Raj has scored 301 runs in two Tests, including her double century, and 311 runs in six ODIs with four fifties.
16 years 205 days Raj's age at the time of her debut, during an ODI against Ireland in 1999. She scored an unbeaten 114 in that game, earning her the title of the youngest centurion in international cricket, among men or women.
