Jhulan Goswami’s stellar career ends with emotions shedding down

jhulan goswami

Jhulan Goswami received a warm farewell from the crowd and a guard of honour from England players on her final appearance for India after a stellar career of two decades come to an end. Bidding goodbye to the iconic bowler has not screened painless for anyone as tears and emotions shed down. She strode out to a massive ovation from Lord’s crowd marking international retirement during the ongoing Eng vs Ind 3rd ODI.

The pacer received a massive round of applause from the opposition as she walked out to bat in the last match of her career. She had already announced that Eng vs Ind 3rd ODI at Lord’s would be her final match, permanently closing her international career’s chapter. Indian batter Deepti Sharma, who was on the crease when Goswami came to bat, also joined England cricketers in applauding her counterpart.

Although her journey has been inspirational for the ladies out there, she could not last long on the crease during her final match carrying out hundreds of emotions. She was bowled out on a golden duck by England’s pacer Freya Kemp. The final ODI of the three-match ODI series in London might allow Harmanpreet Kaur and the girls to provide a perfect farewell for Jhulan Goswami with a series sweep by 3-0. India currently lead by 2-0.

The exceptional career that started against England in Chennai has come to an end against the same opposition. Goswami retires as one of the greatest bowlers to have played the game. No women player has more ODI wickets than the right-arm pacer. She is the only female cricket player to surpass the 250-wicket mark in the 50-over format.

For her services, Cricket Association Bengal (CAB) is planning to name a stand after Goswami at Eden Gardens. The decision’s execution is subjected to the approval of BCCI’s apex council.
