Mithali, Jhulan achieve new feat in cricket

Galle, Sep 12 (UNI) Indian Women cricketer Mithali Raj has created a new record by donning the skipper's hat for 118 times in women ODIs.
Mithali made this record as the captain of India in a match played against Sri Lanka in the ICC women's championship on Tuesday. She surpassed Charlotte Edwards, who led England's ODI side on 117 occasions.
So far, under the captaincy of Mithali, India has won 72 matches and lost 43(62.60 per cent). The 35-year-old, who started her international career in 2002, has played 10 Tests, 195 ODIs and 77 T20 matches.
Meanwhile, her mate and Premier India pacer Jhulan Goswami became the first woman cricketer to scalp 300 wickets in international cricket.
"It's a special win for Indian Women against Sri Lanka in the first ODI. @JhulanG10 became the first woman to take 300 international wickets and @M_Raj03 became the most capped captain in women's ODIs. Today she led India for the 118th time!" BCCI Women tweeted.
Jhulan Goswami currently has 301 international wickets to her name. Her 300th scalp came in the form of Sri Lankan top-order batter Nipuni Hansika.
Belinda Clark from Australia is the third most capped captain in the women's ODI. She has led her national team 101 times in the 50-over format, said the BCCI Women team.
