'Bodied himself with 100kph inswing, how will he play Shaheen?'-Twitter reacts as Rohit Sharma says that Jhulan Goswami troubled him with her inswing deliveries

After competing in the one-day international series against England, the veteran fast bowler Jhulan Goswami of India plans to call it quits on his career in international cricket. The right-arm bowler is likely going to finish her career as the player who has taken the most wickets in the history of women’s international cricket. She has played for India in a total of 12 tests, 201 one-day internationals, and 68 twenty-over internationals, and she has taken 44, 251, and 56 wickets, respectively.

In the meanwhile, the captain of the Indian men’s cricket team, Rohit Sharma, has expressed his gratitude to the veteran bowler and revealed that he had a difficult time confronting Goswami in the practice nets. The conversation continued with Rohit stating that Goswami’s excellent in-swing bowling left him speechless.

What did Rohit Sharma say about Jhulan Goswami?

“When I was injured at NCA, I talked to her a few times. She was there, too, and we were practicing together. And her in-swinger gave me something to think about. So, there was a lot of talk going on. She asked for some things, and I told her some things,” Rohit said this at a press conference before India’s home series with Australia.

“Every time I’ve seen her play, she’s been so excited to play for her country. I don’t know how old she is, but even now she is running in hard and trying to knock out batters, which tells you something. So, it shows how much she cares. I can only hope for the best for her. She’s a once-in-a-generation player,” he added.

Goswami will be participating in the one-day international match between India and England that will take place at the County Ground in Hove. During the first innings, the experienced bowler bowled quite effectively, as shown by the fact that she allowed only 20 runs over the course of her 10 overs and took one wicket. As a result of her efforts, the host side was only able to score 227 runs in their allowed 50 overs. This was a significant victory for the Women in Blue.
