India vs England – Harmanpreet Kaur In Tears Ahead Of Jhulan Goswami’s Farewell Match. Watch

Indian pacesetter Jhulan Goswami is currently playing her last international game and she would take the curtain on her career after playing 204 ODIs, 68 T20Is and 12 Tests. The veteran currently has 253 wickets to her name, which is the record for most scalps taken by a bowler in women’s ODIs. Prior to the toss for the third and final ODI between India and England at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, the entire Indian contingent got confused and teammates were seen talking about Jhulan.

It was then that Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur got emotional and she burst into tears. It is important to note that Harmanpreet had made her debut under the Jhulan captaincy.

The BCCI Women’s official handler also shared a few photos of the entire team with Jhulan in a huddle.

Jhulan has 353 wickets to her name in international cricket, most of them in the women’s field. She also holds the record for taking the most wickets (43) in Women’s World Cups.

She is a three-time winner of the Women’s Asia Cup and was part of two Indian teams that reached the final of the World Cup – 2005 and 2017.

On the eve of the third ODI, Jhulan Goswami had addressed a press conference where he spoke about her wonderful journey.

“Well, you know what when I started, I never thought much about playing. It was an amazing experience, I enjoyed and learned every moment. Obviously Mithali and I have been playing together since U19 days, we had a great relationship both on and off the pitch But it just took Team India to a different level than it was and today it’s completely different That’s a journey we believed we can change the face of women’s cricket we believed we could be in the top three-four teams in the world and it was a one-day process, it was a lengthy process,” Jhulan said while answering an NDTV question at a virtual press conference.


“We spent a lot of hours discussing things, we went through a lot of ups and downs, we always believed in our ability and it was a great experience. Everyone loved every moment and we put a lot of effort into it.”

“I’m very lucky, I never thought about it. Coming from Chakda, I had no idea about women’s cricket and how professional setup works. I’m lucky, thanks to my family and parents, they have always supported me. It was a great experience for me,” she added.
