Mithali Raj Misses India-Australia World T20 Clash Due to Injury

With her 17th T20I fifty on Thursday Mithali Raj also joined New Zealand’s Suze Bates Australia’s Alyssa Healy and Pakistan’s Babar Azam in terms of the most 50-plus scores in a calendar year

Mithali Raj left behind Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to score the most runs in T20Is. Australia boasts of a number of match-winners in their side, especially the likes of opening batter and wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy, her partner Beth Mooney, all-rounder Ellyse Perry, besides the experienced duo of Megan Schutt and Elyse Villani.

Smriti Mandhana produced a stunning innings of 83 in India's last Group B game to help India beat Australia comfortably by 48 runs in Providence Guyana on Saturday.

Only Ellyse Perry produced a lone hand for Australia in her 100th T20 global, hitting an unbeaten 39 from 28 to go with her 3-16 with the ball.

Her absence came as a major blow to the Aussies at the top of the order as they attempted to pull off the biggest successful chase in the tournament's history, but were instead routed by India's spinners to be all out for 119.

P Diddy's Ex Model- Girlfriend, Kim Porter Found Dead
Kim Porter's final public appearance saw her celebrating the release of her son's new movie with her exes Diddy and Al B Sure . Kim and Diddy dated off-and-on-again between 1994 and 2007-2008 (circa the birth of their twins).

Mandhana hit three sixes to go with her nine boundaries, while Kaur also struck three sixes, one hit over spinner Sophie Molineux's head.

Raj has scored 17 fifties so far and her highest score ever in 85 matches so far is 97 runs. With this, the Women in Blue qualified for the semi-finals of the tournament.

Both she and Schutt only had eyes for the ball as the pair collided in the 19th over.

She'll be assessed again when Australia land in their finals base of Antigua on Monday (AEDT), with the usual return-to-play checks to be completed before Friday's semi-final. Meanwhile, Meg Lanning's Australia will also be eager to keep their winning momentum going.
