Jhulan Goswami retires: international wickets, number of matches and other career statistics

0

Jhulan Goswami will play her last international match – an ODI on 24 September at Lord’s. What better way to finish a glittering cricket career than at the Lord’s?

For her career to span over two decades, 19-year-old Goswami made her debut in March 2002, at a time that would look ancient in today’s generation.

Over the course of 20 years, the pacer has been a stalwart for India, and an epitome of fast bowing for World Cricket.

Goswami’s international retirement was announced in August 2022, as the BCCI conveyed the message that they were willing to pursue with a young group and fresh legs of bowlers. However, they wanted Jhulu Di to have a proper farewell.

With Mithali Raj already having retired, the end of Goswami’s career at the home of cricket will truly mark the end of an era in Indian cricket.

However, what will be etched forever is her presence in the hearts of the fans and her numbers in the history books, which might take require a change in eon before being broken.

We can only talk about her numbers, and so will we –

The stalwart played 12 Tests, 203 ODIs, and 68 T20Is in her career.
