People from the cricket fraternity took to Twitter and extended their best wishes to the veteran fast bowler Jhulan Goswami

Legendary Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami donned the blue Indian jersey for one last time on Saturday as she took the field against England in the last ODI at Lord’s. It was her last international game as she had already announced drawing curtains to her illustrious career that lasted 20 years. She will retire with the most international wickets – 353 – in women’s cricket.

During the third and the final ODI, she received a guard of honour from the Amy Jones-led England team. She also accompanied her captain Harmanpreet Kaur at the toss and received a memento from the BCCI to acknowledge her valuable contribution to women’s cricket.

Earlier, the Indian women’s team was all out for a paltry 169 against England in the third and final ODI here on Saturday. Sent in to bat, India kept losing wickets at regular intervals to be bundled out in 45.4 overs at Lord’s in veteran seamer Jhulan Goswami’s farewell game.

All-rounder Deepti Sharma top-scored for the visitors with an unbeaten 68 off 106 balls, while opener Smriti Mandhana was the second highest scorer, making exactly 50 runs in 79 deliveries.

Barring these two, none of the Indian batters could make any substantial contribution in the final game of the series, which the tourists have already claimed with wins in the first two matches.

Among England bowlers, medium pacer Kate Cross returned with excellent figures of 4/26, while there were two wickets apiece for Freya Kemp and Sophie Ecclestone.
