ENG W vs IND W ODI Series: Mithali Raj scored 72 against England in ODI series

India’s one-day captain Mithali Raj has taken advantage of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) latest ODI rankings. Mithali scored 72 in the first ODI against England, and he is one of the top-5 batters on the basis of that. The 38-year-old batsman, who recently completed 22 years in international cricket, stepped up in the crease as the team struggled to two for 27. India scored 201 for eight wickets which was not enough against the world champions. England easily won the match by eight wickets. Mithali, who has been instrumental in leading India to the World Cup final (2017), has moved up three places to fifth place for the first time since October 2019.

However, there is no significant gain for any other Indian in the ranking. All-rounder Pooja Wastrakar was ranked 97th in the batsmen’s rankings and 88th among bowlers. The young sensation Shefali Verma topped the ODI rankings at number 120 in the T20 International format. He made 15 of 14 balls in his debut. England’s opening batsman Tammy Beaumont topped the rankings. In this match, the player scored an unbeaten 87, scoring 26 rating points and taking his total rating to 791. Natalie Schriver’s latest ranking of 74 not out women moved from ninth to eighth.

Anya Shrubsole has moved up three places to eighth, while T20 International left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone has moved up four places to 10th. Against India, Mithali and Harmanpreet Kaur sent three batters to the pavilion, including a wicket. Kate Cross improved three places to 25th place.
