Legendary Indian bowler Jhulan Goswami has stepped in her final international game as India and England engage in the third and final ODI match at Lord's in London on Saturday (September 24). Last month, Jhulan announced her retirement decision after dominating world cricket for 20 years.
Indian fans who can't be at Lord's have glued to the screens to say thank you to Jhulan as the Indian Women's team will be looking to white-wash England after winning the first two matches. But India, who lost the toss, were bowled out on just 169 runs after Kate Cross's four for 26 spell. Jhulan was bowled out by 17-year-old Freya Kemp for a golden duck but Deepti Sharma smashed unbeaten 68 runs to guide India to a defendable target.
Lord's pitch proved excellent for the pace bowlers in the first innings so fans will be hoping for a impressive spell from Jhulan when India come to bowl. Jhulan has given so many memories to her fans across the world and and now it's the fans' turn to say thank you.
