A few weeks after Mithali Raj announced her retirement from the game, her replacement, Harmanpreet Kaur, broke a huge milestone and passed the former to become the top run-scorer among Indian women cricketers in the format. Kaur accomplished the feat in the second match at Dambulla, which the visitors won by five wickets. Kaur is currently captaining the Indian team in the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka.

India completed the 126-run chase with five balls remaining thanks to Kaur’s unbeaten 31 from 32 deliveries, which included two fours. With 2372 runs from 123 games, Kaur is now in the first place, eight runs ahead of Mithali, who has 2364 runs from 89 games.

Kaur is the first female cricketer in India to have scored a hundred in this format. In the 2018 T20 World Cup against New Zealand, she got a century Rodrigues is fourth on the list with 1094 runs from 52 matches, followed by Smriti Mandhana in third place with 2011 runs from 86 matches.

Suzie Bates, an all-rounder for New Zealand, is presently ranked first among female cricket players. The 34-year-old has played in 126 games and amassed 3380 runs so far. Raj is the only other Indian in the top 10, while Kaur is now in seventh place overall.
