Virat Kohli, Anil Kumble lead in congratulating record-setter Mithali Raj

PTI7_12_2017_000201B India suffer 8-wicket loss to Australia in ICC Women's WC Mithali Raj during the match

Australia's Meg Lanning has the highest average of 54.12 followed by Ellyse Perry, who has an average of 50.

Just two teams, England and Australia, have secured their spot, while South Africa, India and New Zealand will battle it out for the other two places in Saturday's super round of matches. We should have got more runs in the middle overs, but it was still a competitive total. Even the former Englishwoman Charlotte Edwards, whose record the Indian broke on Wednesday, posted a video message for the India captain.

Lanning went past 5000 career runs and fell one short of 3000 ODI runs, while it was Perry's fourth 50 in a row this tournament.

Given the ever increasing number of games being played, Lanning could be the player who eventually reels in Raj's record.

"We enjoy ourselves, when out there".

"I think we understand each other's game well and our communication is good as well".

"It was nice to do that today". After disappointing many with a poor batting performance in their opening matches, they've since put together two wins in a row. Before leaving for the World Cup Raj had claimed that winning the Women's World Cup in England would revolutionise the sport in India and inspire young girls to pick up the game.

"The team needs to step up". We made a decision to take on the bowling, and we did that pretty well today. "They need to be a little more consistent in the areas they plan to bowl".

Australia Women were clinical on the field to restrict India Women to a modest score and chased the total easily.

Losing wickets in clusters: Apart from the 157 run partnership stitched by Mithali Raj and Poonam Raut, there were no substantial partnerships and that led to the downfall of the eves.

To be fair to the Indian captain Mithila Raj, she did make the point at press-conferences before the game that her focus would be on trying to win the crucial match against Australia after the loss to South Africa. In its ball-by-ball coverage of the match as it happened, The Guardian cricket correspondent found it unusual that Deepti Sharma (the highest scorer in the previous game against South Africa) was bumped down the order behind the sloggers like Jhulan Goswami despite stroking 27 boundaries in a match against Ireland. Having to choose between dancing and cricket, she eventually made a decision to take up the latter full time.

Perry also improved with the ball, returning 2-37, capably supported by Megan Schutt with 2-52.
