The highlight of India innings was Mithali surpassing former England captain Charlotte Edwards' aggregate of 5992 runs to become the highest run-getter in the history of women's ODI.
The now deleted post read: "A great moment for Indian cricket, Mithali Raj becomes the highest run scorer in Women's ODI Cricket History today".
Australia assured itself of advancing along with England and South Africa, who won their respective matches against New Zealand and Sri Lanka. During the live telecast of the India-Australia match, the expert commentators Sanjay Manjrekar, Anjum Chopra, Alan Wilkins, Lisa Sthalekar and Ian Bishop kept pointing out that Mithila Raj was very tentative and that it was the opener Punam Raut who was showing much more intent on pushing the scoring-rate.
India needed in-form Raj in the 2002 World Cup, but the team's chances got hampered when she fell sick during the tournament. The match against New Zealand is a virtual quarter-final as the victor will qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament. Ekta Bisht has been particularly impressive with her match winning five wicket haul against arch rivals Pakistan.
Talking about the milestone, Mithali said: "I think that since I've had a long career, (the milestone) is part of it".

The victor will go through to face Czech Tomas Berdych in the quarter-finals. "He knows and understands the big matches". The opening match on Centre Court was due to start at noon, so the roof was closed for the first time this year.
Lanning (76 not out) and Ellyse Perry (60 not out) underlined their status as two of the biggest stars in the women's game with a 124-run partnership to seal the win.
"We enjoy ourselves, when we're out there", she said.
"We really have to improve all over the pitch, especially producing more consistency from how we are bowling and fielding", she added. The 28-year-old is a far more capable batswoman than her scores of 24*, 10, 20, 0, 23 between Nos.
"It's going OK, I've had a couple of days off and we'll keep assessing but the plan is to play tomorrow", she said. Popularly known as "Sachin Tendulkar" of women's Cricket, Mithali Raj, has become the highest run-scorer in women's ODI cricket. It's something it has shown itself capable of, in the qualifier win over South Africa back in February and against England in the opening game of this World Cup, for instance. Kristen Beams made the breakthrough when she caught and bowled India captain Raj with her third ball of the over.
Given the ever increasing number of games being played, Lanning could be the player who eventually reels in Raj's record.
