White Ferns world cup over

White Ferns knocked out of women's Cricket World Cup

The 34-year-old cricketer started her worldwide career in 1999 with a match against Ireland. She had created history to become the leading run-scorer in women's One Day International cricket during the last match against Australia.

The women cricketers of India found their way to the semi-finals of ICC Women's World Cup 2017 after defeating New Zealand by a whopping 186 runs. Mithali, however, achieved certain milestones in this edition.

However, it wasn't the most productive of all phases for India. In the end, win or lose, it is this resilient fight that will make the difference to the team and women's cricket in India. During the Rose Bowl one-day series against Australia in March, Kerr bowled Elise Villani and skipper Meg Lanning in consecutive deliveries in her first over, the latter a lovely googly that had the Australian captain deceived all ends up.

There seems to be no stopping India captain Mithali Raj.

The result marks the first time New Zealand has finished outside the top four at a women's world cup. It's been once again Mithali who has had to shoulder the burden of anchoring and accelerating the innings.

That tally proved nowhere large enough, though, as Australia chased down their target for the loss of just two wickets - skipper Meg Lanning (76no) and Ellyse Perry (60no) sharing an unbroken third-wicket stand of 124 after solid opening contributions from Nicole Bolton (36) and Beth Mooney (45). "Played Captain's knock in very crucial game", he said. "For a couple of us, this will be our last World Cup, so our first aim was to enter the semi-finals".

In 2002 World-Cup Raj had to sit out as she fell sick during the tournament. Like a true leader who puts the team before self, Mithali has sacrificed her personal glory so that the group benefits. Suzie Bates' decision to put India in to bat first was justified by Lea Tahuhu and Hannah Rowe as they dismissed Punam Raut (4) and Smriti Mandhana (13) respectively. Even in this match, scoring runs won't be an easy task.

"We were nowhere near good as we needed to be", she said. Had we lost my wicket, the whole responsibility would be on the middle order, which hasn't been performing.

"I've always dreamt of getting runs for my country - that hunger never dies".

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) acting president C.K. Khanna hailed the women's team for qualifying into the semi-finals of the tournament.

Along with Australia's Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry, Mithali is the only other player to have an average of above 50 among players with 1500-plus runs.

For India to get the better of their opposition, they will have to show the intent and initiative they showed in the opener against the same England where their batting masterclass and spin gave them a 35-run win.

According to the reports, in 1997, Debbie Hockley also scored eight fifty-plus scores in ODIs and that record was not broken for 19 years until Perry made nine scores.

In 2002, she made her Test debut in Lucknow against England.
