Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami announces retirement

New Delhi, Aug 23: Jhulan Goswami, the veteran India pacer, has announced her retirement from Twenty20 Internationals, the BCCI announced in a media release on Thursday (August 23).

The 35-year-old has finished her T20I career with 56 wickets from 68 matches at an average of 21.94 and an economy of 5.45, including a career-best of 5 for 11 against Australia in Visakhapatnam in March 2012.

"Goswami thanked the BCCI 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 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 BCCI statement read.

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.
