Good Sports: CRICKET STAR ACHIEVES MILESTONE

Smriti Mandhana crossed the milestone of 2,000 ODI runs in a match against West Indies on November 6, leading India to a six-wicket victory that clinched the series 2-1 in Antigua.

The 23-year-old cricketer, who scored 74 runs in the match, became the third-fastest woman to reach 2,000 ODI runs, doing it in her 51st match. Only Australia’s Belinda Clark (41 innings) and Meg Lanning (45) have reached 2,000 runs faster in One Day International matches.

Mandhana is the second-fastest Indian to achieve the milestone, behind only Shikhar Dhawan, who did it in 48 innings in men’s cricket.

The Mumbai-born Mandhana showed her cricket prowess at an early age, being selected for the Maharashtra Under-19 team when she was just 11.
