Mithali raj becomes first woman to play 200 ODI matches

Cricketer Mithali Raj made us proud yet again as she became the first woman to play 200 matches in the one-day international format when she played in Hamilton against New Zealand on Friday.

India’s one-day international captain already holds the record for being the most capped woman in one-day internationals.

She earned her 192nd cap to beat Charlotte Edward’s, former England captain when she led India against the English in the first match of their ICC Women’s Championship ODI series in April 2018.

Raj made her ODI debut in June 1999 against Ireland in Milton Keynes, where she scored 114 and India won by 161 runs.

India, leading 2-0 in the three-match series against New Zealand, are batting first in the final match of the series.
