Woeful White Ferns crash out of World Cup

Mithali became the first woman cricketer in history to achieve the milestone, and Virat Kohli took to social media to congratulate her on the achievement.

Please Wait while comments are loading. She said, "You can't just give up because you lose one game".

Cricket runs in the family's blood, and was something Kerr was encouraged to take up when she took a real interest in the sport at a young age.

She said that the team's game has been good in the tournament and they have lost only against England and Australia and that they have to play well as it is a do-or-die game and one of them has to go home.

Then came the spinners - especially one named Rajeshwari Gayakwad, who sat in the dugout throughout the tournament, waiting patiently for her chance.

Left-arm orthodox bowler Rajeshwari Gayakwad destroyed the New Zealand batting line-up with figures of 5/15 and ensured that the White Ferns were never in the chase.

The 34-year-old, who made her debut at the age of 16, has often been called the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian women's cricket.

Coming in the eighth over at the team score of 21-2 at the fall of opener Smriti Mandhana (13), Mithali anchored the Indian innings magnificently. Overall, New Zealand have a 27-17 win-loss record against India in women's ODIs.

While Veda dismantled the New Zealanders, hitting big shots at will, Raj brought up her sixth ODI hundred.

India on Saturday destroyed New Zealand to advance to the semi-finals of the ongoing Women's World Cup in England. The entry of India into the semi-final of an ICC event is its first since 2010. Another greatest achievement is her above 50 averages in her career.

An excellent display of off-spin bowling filled with the riches of flight, loop, turn, bounce earned her a five-for and India a spot in the semis.
