Smriti Mandhana, an Indian cricketer, sets a new record


Smriti Mandhana, the star batswoman for India, today passed the 3000-run mark in ODIs, making her the third Indian woman to do so.

Mandhana surpassed India legend Mithali Raj, who accomplished the feat in 88 innings, by reaching the milestone in her 76th ODI innings. In the second ODI of the three-match series against England, Mandhana accomplished this feat. The average in Mandhana is over 43. After Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, Mandhana was the third Indian to reach the mark in the quickest time. While Kohli needed 75 innings to reach 3000 ODI runs, Dhawan needed only 72.

The left-handed opener, who made her ODI debut in 2013, currently holds a format record of five centuries and 24 half-centuries. The current captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, became the third Indian woman to reach that milestone.

In addition, Mandhana has reached her milestone in women’s ODI cricket more quickly than Belinda Clark and Meg Lanning of Australia (62 innings each) (64 innings). Canterbury: India scored their second-highest total in women’s ODI history today thanks to captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s 111-ball 143, which was her fifth ODI century. India’s 333/5 against England was also their highest ODI score. Harleen Deol scored 58 points off 72 balls to reach her first ODI half-century.
