India Women’s team’s veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami has finally decided to hang up her boots from international cricket for her country.

She will retire after the third ODI against England Women and everyone, even the BCCI wants to give her a proper farewell.

After retirement, Jhulan has a lot of other plans to improve the status of women’s cricket in India by developing a pool of young fast bowlers for the future of Indian cricket.

Goswami’s last ODI was against New Zealand in March this year in the ODI World Cup. The BCCI is keen to give her a proper farewell for a long time now.

Additionally, Jhulan hasn’t played any T20Is since 2018 and her last Test match was in October last year.

Goswami is the highest wicket-taker in women’s internationals, with a total of 352 wickets in all three formats.

Moreover, Goswami is also in talks with the men’s IPL teams where she can become a team mentor.

Also, she is open to the idea of Women’s IPL which will launch next year.

For the upcoming domestic season for women, Goswami will be a player and mentor for the Bengal women’s team.

Goswami made her debut for India at the age of 19 in 2002 and has now played cricket for over two decades now.

Also, she has now featured in six ODI World Cups for India over the years.

India’s tour of England will start with three T20Is from the 10th of September and conclude with the third ODI which will be played on the 24th of September.
