Indian cricket players are on a roll and are performing like shining stars. No, I am not talking about the bright strokes by the men in blue who get all the attention but the players of the female cricket team. I mean the women in blue are doing great in the ongoing T20I world cup. First the captain Harmanpreet Kaur and now Mithali Raj have scored some good runs. Interestingly, Mithali Raj became the highest run scorer for India in T20I against Pakistan and team India won the match.
On November 11, Mithali Raj left Rohit Sharma behind to become the highest run scorer for India in T20I cricket. In a surprise move, Raj was sent in to open the innings against Pakistan, as India was eyeing a payback for their two-run loss in the last T20 World Cup.
So far Mithali Raj has scored 2232 runs in her T20I career and now sits on top after becoming the highest run scorer for India. Rohit Sharma takes the second spot with 2207 runs.
Mithali Raj is also the highest run-scorer for India. She was already ahead of Kohli in the list and now she has surpassed Rohit Sharma. Rohit has scored 2207 runs in 87 T20Is while Kohli has 2102 runs in 72 innings.
And this is how Harbhajan Singh reacted on the Twitter on her achievement.

Harsha Bhogle too was all praises for the cricketer and the women in blue.
Harmanpreet, 103(51) did it her way against New Zealand. Today Mithali Raj 56(47) did it her way against Pakistan. Two champions.

We hope that Mithali keep up this form and helps India win the T20 World Cup this time.
