India's veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami is set to play her last international game, against England on September 24 (Saturday). The right-arm pacer will end her career as the highest wicket-taker in Women's game history. 

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has praised the veteran pacer stating that she is an "absolute legend" of the game and that he has had several discussions with the senior pacer regarding the development of Women's cricket.

I have a very cordial relationship with her: Ganguly on Goswami   

Jhulan Goswami is an absolute legend. She has taken the most wickets in the history of women's cricket. She is from Bengal Chakdah. I have a very cordial relationship with her. I had a lot of discussions with Jhulan Goswami regarding women's cricket development. I had a chat with Smriti Mandhana, and Harmanpreet Kaur as well,” Ganguly said during an event in Kolkata. 

As mentioned above, Jhulan will end her career as the highest wicket-taker in the history of the Women's game. The right-arm pacer has scalped more than 350 wickets in the international arena and she will want to take a few more in her last game before signing off. 

The senior pacer has been a part of the Indian squad in six 50-over World Cups. "If my daughter wants to play cricket, I would suggest her be like Jhulan but unfortunately, she is not playing cricket. I wish her all the best," Ganguly added.

Meanwhile, India are set to take on the home team in the final ODI match, at the Lord's Cricket Ground on Saturday. The Women in Blue have already clinched the series after securing victory in the first two games and they will be looking to extend their dominance in the third encounter as well. England, on the other hand, will try its best to avoid a whitewash against the visiting team.
