England’s Sophie Ecclestone break 21-year-old all-time record in ODIs

England’s left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone entered the record books in the third and final ODI against Pakistan played on May 28 (Wednesday) played at the County Ground in Chelmsford. She picked up three wickets for just 15 runs and completed 100 wickets in the ODI format in the 64th match of her already glorious career.

She reached the landmark of 100 scalps in the format in 63 innings becoming the fastest ever to the milestone in Women’s cricket. This record earlier belonged to Australia’s Cathryn Fitzpatrick who had completed a century of wickets in the 50-over format in 64 innings back in February 2003.
