Indian Men’s Cricket team skipper Rohit Sharma talked about the time Jhulan Goswami bowled him at practice. The Indian Women’s Cricket team veteran bowler Jhulan Goswami will retire after the England tour India is touring. Sharma recalled the instance when he was injured and practiced with Jhulan at the National Cricket Academy.

“I have only had a few interactions with her, when I was injured at the NCA, she was also there, and she was bowling to me,” Rohit Sharma said to the press conference ahead of the Australia series at home.

“I was challenged with her inswinger, it was good to see. I think she is one of India’s stalwarts in terms of what she has done for the country, as a lead bowler of India. Whenever I have seen her play, she has always shown so much passion for the country, which is good learning for all the young kids who are coming up and wanting to represent the country whether it is women’s cricket or men’s cricket,”

Goswami played 12 tests with 44 wickets, 202 ODIs bagging 253 wickets, and 68 T20Is with 56 wickets. Sharma was blown by her performance even at such an age when players usually enjoy retirement.

“I do not know how old she is, even at this age, she is running this hard and trying to knock the opposition out. It tells you something, it tells you about the passion she has. I can only wish her the best for the future, you do not find a player like that every time. She is a once-in-a-generation player.” Rohit added.

“Big, big congratulations on such a wonderful career. Mithali and Jhulan are the ones who have taken Indian women’s cricket to a different height. And the current team are trying to take that legacy forward, they are playing some good cricket which is very exciting to watch.” Sharma concluded by congratulating Jhulan Goswami.
