IND vs ENG: Team India to give a memorable farewell to Jhulan Goslami at Lord’s by clean sweep


London. Jhulan Goswami, who has become synonymous with fast bowling in women’s cricket, will pay a memorable farewell to the legendary player by a clean sweep of 3-0 in the three-match ODI series against England by the Indian team when they play the last match of their career at Lord’s on Saturday. Will try to give Playing cricket at Lord’s is the dream of any player and scoring a century or taking five wickets at this ground is considered a big achievement, but very few players get a chance to say goodbye to their cricket career at this historic ground.

Sunil Gavaskar (though he played his last first-class match here) did not get this opportunity. Be it Sachin Tendulkar or Brian Lara or Glenn McGrath, nobody got a chance to play their last match at Lord’s. Even Mithali Raj, who was Jhulan’s partner for almost 20 years, did not get an opportunity to say goodbye to her career on the cricket field, but see the fortune wheel that Goswami is going to play her last match at Lord’s.

Captain Harmanpreet in old rhythm, Shefali’s form became a concern
India have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series but Harmanpreet Kaur and her teammates will leave no stone unturned to give a memorable farewell to Jhulan with a clean sweep. India did well in every department of the game in the first two matches against England and will try to maintain that momentum. The biggest advantage for India is that captain Harmanpreet has returned to her old rhythm. He played innings of 74 not out and 143 not out in the first two matches. However, for India, the form of Shefali is a matter of concern, which has been struggling to score runs for some time.

Jhulan has a record 353 international wickets in his name.
Harleen Deol has cemented her place in the middle order but fast bowlers Meghna Singh, Renuka Thakur and Pooja Vastrakar will have to improve their game after Jhulan retires. As far as England is concerned, they are missing captain Heather Knight (due to injury) and star all-rounder Nat Sciver (due to mental health reasons) and this has also disturbed the balance of the team. India last won an ODI series in England in 1999, while Jhulan did not even make his international debut. Now he is ready to play his 204th and last match. He has a record 353 international wickets in his name.
