India captain Mithali Raj on Wednesday became the first woman to complete 20 years in international cricket.

She achieved the feat while leading India to an emphatic eight-wicket win over South Africa in the first One-Day International of the three-match series in Vadodara on Wednesday.

Mithali, who made her ODI debut against Ireland on June 26, 1999, completed 20 years and 105 days in the 50-over format. She, thus, became the only woman to have played ODI cricket for over two decades.
