Mithali Raj tops ICC ODI batting rankings, beats Australia, New zealand

New Delhi, Oct 30: This is a very big feat and a moment of big pride for Indian cricket, Women not Men. Yes, India's ace cricketer, who has tasted success and fame not long ago, Mithali Raj basksin anew glory now. She has topped ICC ODI batting rankings. She has beaten Australia's Ellyse Perry and New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite ranked second and third respectively.

Not long back BBC had named Indian Women's Cricket Team captain Mithali Raj as one of the most influential women in India. Mithali is currently the highest run-getter in ODIs and also led the team to the ICC Womens World Cup final in England, where they lost to the hosts.

The list has been inspired by the BBC 100 Women Challenge, which will be held in Delhi from October 9-13 where a team will look at the female illiteracy.
