Indian women cricket team’s pace spearhead Jhulan Goswami has decided to call it quits from the shortest format of the game. She has announced her retirement from the T20 format with immediate effect.
Jhulan has represented India in 68 T20Is picking up 56 wickets which included a five-wicket haul against Australia in 2012. She thanked the Board of Control for Cricket in India and her teammates for all the love and support she garnered during her stint with the T20I team and wished them luck going forward, BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary has stated in a Press release.
BCCI and the entire Women’s national team wishes her the best and looks forward to her valuable contributions when she represents India in other two formats.
Jhulan, a veteran of 10 Tests and 169 ODIs is currently the leading wicket-taker in the women’s ODI format and also the first woman cricketer to take 200 ODI wickets.
