March 12, 2021: India Women cricket team skipper Mithali Raj on Friday became the first Indian woman cricketer and second internationally to score 10,000 runs across all the three formats.



Mithali, who is leading the side against South Africa women, in the 3rd ODI in Lucknow, was dismissed for 36 but not before reaching a milestone in her 212th ODI game for her country.



The 38-year-old joined England's Charlotte Edwards in the elite club. She achieved the feat with a boundary off Anne Bosch in the 28th over of India's innings.



On Friday, Mithali walked in at the fall of Smriti Mandhana. An experienced hand, Mithali failed to capitalize on a good start and was caught by Mignon du Preez of Anne Bosch for 36.



Mithali has amassed 663 runs in 10 Test matches with the best score of 214, while she has 6,938 and 2,364 runs from 212 ODIs and 89 T20 Internationals respectively.
