Mithali Raj is highest T20I run scorer in India, beats Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma
November 17, 2018
Indian cricketer Mithali Raj, who is presently captaining India in the ongoing ICC Women's World T20, has achieved a milestone no other Indian cricketer has until now.
Raj is the highest T20I run-scorer for India in the T20I format, and is ahead of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Other cricketers in this list are India women's captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Suresh Raina, and M S Dhoni.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) shared her achievement through a tweet.

Raj has played well at the ongoing ICC Women's World T20. She scored a superb 56 against Pakistan in India's second Group B clash, and then later a 51-run knock against Ireland, helping India qualify for the semi-final.
She scored 56 runs off 51 balls and did this on her own with little support from her teammates.
Congratulatory messages have been pouring in for her. "What a knock from Mithali Raj," said Moumita."Played 56 balls.. scored her half century and got out in the 19th over with a s/r of 91 .. We are not going to win this tournament with this kind of approach considering batting is our main strength."
Firstpost Raj works as a "team's insurance policy. She allows the naturally attacking players like @mandhana_smriti & @JemiRodrigues to exercise their free-flowing style without having to worry about a collapse. "
