Even though the team has world's leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in the same playing XI, the truth is it has struggled to perform as a unit and this one area where Mithali Raj needs to work.

"Punam (Raut, the opener who scored a century in that match) did tell me, 'you stay there.' She feels confident when I'm around".

Cricket runs in the family's blood, and was something Kerr was encouraged to take up when she took a real interest in the sport at a young age. "Her contribution was really very crucial", she said. Today, Mithali Raj in a match which was deciding for India to reach the Semi's Vs New Zealand in Women's World Cup scored a match winning century which became the 10th fifty-plus score in a calendar year which is the highest by any batswoman.

It's a do-or-die clash, a virtual quarterfinal as India take on New Zealand in their last league game of the Women's World Cup at the County Ground in Derby on Saturday.

PGA: Charles Howell, Ollie Schniederjans share lead in John Deere Classic
Danny Lee's hopes of qualifying for the British Open will come down to luck after pulling out of the latest PGA Tour event in IL . Rodgers followed his 65 in Round 1 with a 64 in Round 2, and at 14 under, he leads the tournament by two over Bryson DeChambeau.

However, New Zealand's plans to run through the Indian middle order were dashed as Veda Krishnamurthy counterattacked, with Raj continuing to play sheet anchor's role from the other end. If India lose the match, it will be the last ever World Cup match for captain and ODI record-holder Mihali Raj.

It is a virtual knock out match for both sides as the victor of this match will progress to the semi-finals. "I've always dreamed getting more and more runs because the hunger never dies", Mithali said at the post-match presentation ceremony. Indian women have shattered many records and earned a good name for the country.

At 16 years and 205 days, Mithali is the youngest centurion (114 not out on her debut in 1999) in the history of women's ODIs.

However, Kohli made a mistake by posting an image of another India women's player instead of his female counterpart, Times Now reported. Another greatest achievement is her above 50 averages in her career.
