New Delhi: Indian fast bowler Jhulan Goswami is going to bid farewell to international cricket soon. Although, she hasn’t announced it yet, the women’s third ODI against England at Lord’s is set to be her last. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly heaped praise on the West Bengal-born pacer ahead of his last match in international cricket.
‘If my daughter played cricket, I would want her to play like Goswami,’ Ganguly
He said that if his daughter played cricket, he would ask her to be like Jhulan. Sourav said at an event on Thursday, “Jhulan has an incredible career. Played great cricket for so many years. If my daughter played cricket, I would tell her to be like Jhulan Goswami. But that didn’t happen.”
“Jhulan’s retirement at a ground like Lord’s is undoubtedly going to be a great affair. The board has plans to honor her. I am not saying what will be done right now.
