Jhulan Goswami Bows Out With A Historical Feat, Becomes First Woman In ODI History To Bowl 10,000 Deliveries

September 25, 2022 | by Priyadarshini Malavia

India is a country where cricket is a part of our culture and it is one of the many things that unite us as countrymen. Despite this, the Indian women’s cricket team were barely paid attention to while we kept gloating over the men’s victories. Having said that, slowly but surely, the women’s team has managed to get some limelight for themselves by continually proving themselves through efforts, achievements and brilliant players such as Jhulan Goswami. And now in her final match against England, she has ended with a banger by making history as the first female cricketer to bowl 10,000 deliveries in ODI.

Jhulan Goswami achieved a monumental feat in her farewell match v England at Lord’s, preserving her legendary record. The 39-year-old became the first woman to bowl 10,000 or more deliveries in ODI cricket history during the third and final England vs. India match on Saturday. This achievement of longevity just serves as further evidence of the legend’s outstanding career. After bowling a massive 10,005 deliveries in 204 ODIs, the 39-year-old retiree. The most ever in women’s ODI history, with 255 wickets in the format. Katherine Brunt of England is in second on the list with 6847 deliveries in 141 games.

India gave the accomplished bowler a proper sendoff by defeating England 3-0 in the three-match ODI series at Lord’s. After making her international debut in 2002, the right-arm pacer concluded a 20-year career. India captain Harmanpreet Kaur got emotional and said that she is aware that it was Goswami’s final game, but they will never forget her as she is always with them and is only a phone call away. She added that she is grateful that they got to play with her.

Goswami also thanked her supporters before the game. She expressed her gratitude to the BCCI, her friends, her family, her coaches, her teammates, and her captains. She said that she will have to control her emotions as she can’t bring on the cricket field and that she has to play hard cricket and give it her all because she is “a ruthless character.”

I love that we are slowly but surely giving women’s cricket the attention and credit they deserve. Just a while back, the news has come that the women’s IPL (WIPL) will be earlier than we expected in the coming year which makes me even more enthusiastic to see what our female players have in store for us.
