Lying at the fourth spot on the points table, Mithali Raj-led Indian team will look to break the put their best foot forward after two consecutive losses in the prestigious event.

The White Ferns have failed to make the semifinals of the women's Cricket World Cup after suffering a 186-run defeat in their final pool game to India. Mithali's father was in the Indian Air Force and he was the one who wanted her to become a cricketer.

Please Wait while comments are loading. She went past Suzie Bates' and Belinda Clark's tally of six with her 109 in this match.

The 34-year-old cricketer started her worldwide career in 1999 with a match against Ireland. She says that reading helps her focus which fans on social media found very interesting.

"Extremely happy. For a couple of us, this will be the last World Cup, so our first aim was to enter semifinals", said Mithali, who was adjudged the player of the match for her ton. Their elation at taking India's two wickets early in the game ended when skipper Mithali Raj slammed a century, Veda Krishnamurthy scored a 70 and Harmanpreet Kaur scored a 60 to power India's total to 265/7. New Zealand are playing the quarter final of ICC Women's World cup and it is about to end. Indian women have shattered many records and earned a good name for the country.

Mithali Raj became all time leading ODI run-scorer in the last match.

Team India are likely to face Australia in their semi-final clash.

However, based on her early career to date and how she carries herself, a challenge is what she thrives on. As a 14-year-old, only 2 months after her provincial debut, she claimed 3 for 19 for the Wellington Blaze against Otago, as the Blaze claimed an emphatic 10-wicket victory to be crowned champions.
