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.
Jhulan made her T20I debut in August 2006 against England in Derby and has ended her career as the third most-capped Indian player in T20Is. Her last T20I appearance was against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final on June 10 earlier this year, which India lost by three wickets.
Jhulan, who’s the leading wicket-taker in women’s ODIs and the first woman to bag 200 wickets in the 50-over format, has also played 10 Tests in which she has picked up 40 wickets at an average of 16.62 with three five-wicket hauls.
In April this year, she was honoured with a postage stamp to celebrate her achievements in cricket.
