Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami has decided to call it quits from Twenty-20 Internationals (T20Is). The announcement came less than three months before the Women’s World T20 takes place in the West Indies.
The 35-year-old represented India in 68 T20Is picking up 56 wickets, which included a five-wicket haul against Australia in Visakhapatnam in March 2012. She had made her T20I debut in August 2006 against England in Derby.
Goswami thanked the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) and her teammates for the support she garnered during her stint with the T20I team and wished them luck going forward.
“The 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,” the cricket body said in a statement.
Goswami, 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.
