Senior India speedster Jhulan Goswami is all set to retire from international cricket after their upcoming series against England. Team India will play 3 ODIs and T20Is each and Jhulan Goswami has been added to the one-day side as well. However, that is likely to be her last stint with the national side. The lanky pacer from West Bengal has 352 wickets in her name across all 3 formats and if she retires next month, she will finish as the highest wicket-taker across formats as well.
However, Jhulan Goswami has taken the most number of wickets in ODIs with a staggering 252 wickets as well. The India legend will announce her retirement from the sport she started playing way back in 2002, as per a report in NDTV. Her international debut came in an ODI vs England in Chennai in January of 2002. In the same month, she also made her Test debut against the same opponent. However, Jhulan’s T20 debut was also against England in 2006 as well.
On the other hand, Mithali Raj, her teammate for a long time, recently retired from all forms of the game last month after an illustrious career that lasted almost 2 decades as well. Jhulan Goswami has featured in 12 Test matches for India, scalping 44 wickets with the best figure in a match reading 10 for 78 as well. She has played 201 ODIs for India so far, claiming 252 wickets with the best figure of 6 for 31. Jhulan Goswami has played 68 T20s, picking up 56 wickets with one five-wicket haul registered to her name in this format also.
However, she was part of the side that reached the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017. Jhulan was picked in the ODI squad for the series against England that starts on September 18 as well.
