India's women cricketer Mithali Raj breaks another record as she becomes the first Indian cricketer to go past 1,000 runs in ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

Rao, who sent a congratulatory message to Raj, said she made the country proud with her achievement, a release from his office said.

Earlier, Indian captain Mitali Raj led from the front to steer her team to a comfortable 265 runs for the loss of seven wickets. After a start that had them pegged as semi-final favourites, they now face a knockout match against one of the tournament's original favourites, New Zealand.

New Zealand wicketkeeper Rachel Priest celebrates after Amelia Kerr takes a wicket against Pakistan. The 34-year old captain is now the first woman cricketer to have crossed the milestone of 6,000 runs in the 50-over format. India need Mandhana to regain her form today against the White Ferns. In the next over, Maddy Green was dismissed by Poonam Yadav, while Lea Tahuhu became the fourth victim of Gayakwad, who also cleaned up last batswoman Leigh Kasperek (0) to complete her five-wicket haul.

The intelligence report further suggested that several suicide bombers are now reportedly planning to strike the Valley. A pistol, pistol rounds, four grenades and one knife were also recovered from the terrorist.

Preview: India now find themselves in a must-win game after two successive defeats in the ICC Women's World Cup.

The 34-year-old cricketer started her global career in 1999 with a match against Ireland. She scored an unbeaten 114 runs on her debut. However, the highlight of the virtual knock-out match was Mithali's sixth ton in her 184th match and her 109 came from 123 balls and had 11 fours in it. Indian women have shattered many records and earned a good name for the country. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match.

What gives New Zealand an edge is that they haven't been heavily reliant on one, or more, batters throughout.
