India skipper Mithali Raj created history on Wednesday as she became the highest run-scorer in women's ODI cricket against Australia at Bristol. The Indian batsman broke the record of 5,992 runs held by England's Charlotte Edwards. She also became the first cricketer to cross 6000-run mark in ODIs.
Here's how Twitter reacted to her world record achievement.
