Mithali Raj created history on Thursday (June 7) by becoming the first Indian to score 2000 runs in T20 Internationals, a record that even her male counterparts haven't yet achieved.

Mithali Raj has 14 half-centuries to her name in T20I cricket.

In addition, India defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets to come back to winning ways. She now has 2,015 runs in 75 matches. England great Charlotte Edwards tops the table with 2605 runs.

When it comes to batting or scoring runs at a brisk pace, Indian captain Virat Kohli's name comes first in mind. Those closest to Raj are West Indies' Deandra Dottin with 2039 runs and England's Sarah Taylor 2091 runs.

As a result, India claims the top spot with three wins from four games and is likely to book a place in the finals.
