This 22-year-old record of Mithali Raj was broken!
Indian women's team captain Mithali Raj's record of scoring the youngest century in ODI cricket has been broken. This record of Mithali Raj has been broken by Amy Hunter of Ireland on her 16th birthday.
Hunter became the youngest player to score a century in ODI cricket through an unbeaten 121 against Zimbabwe. Earlier, Indian captain, Mithali Raj had made this record against Ireland in June 1999 at the age of 16 years and 205 days.
