The 34-year-old Mithali, already the highest run-getter in the 50-over format, got to her sixth One-Day International (ODI) ton off 116 balls when she drove Leigh Kasperek between long-on and deep midwicket.

If New Zealand win and Australia beat South Africa by a big margin, they could also move to the third spot.

Although at this stage, India couldn't have asked for a better opponent than the ones who have oddly flunked at crucial junctures in all ICC events since finishing runners-up in 2010 World T20. There were injury concerns surrounding all-rounder Devine, who picked up a side strain in the last game, but Bates said that she was available for selection, if only as a batter. She hit 71 off 73 balls against England in their World Cup opener.

Even as a majority of those wins have come against the minnows, it's also the venue where India did the unthinkable and stunned the now table-toppers England. However, she fell for a golden duck in the previous match against South Africa. Indian women have shattered many records and earned a good name for the country.
