Jhulan Goswami gets guard of honour
Goswami gets guard of honour – The end of an era: As India stalwart Jhulan Goswami bids farewell to the game of cricket.
Jhulan Goswami, who walked out to bat for one final time in international cricket during the third ODI against England at Lord’s on Saturday, earned the respect of the players.
Goswami, playing his last ODI at Lord’s, opened the batting at No.9 after a mediocre batting display from India and received a heartfelt gesture on the field as he made one final exit in international cricket.
Batting, India were 29/4 with successive losses as Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma revived the innings. However, after the partnership broke down, India lost wickets in quick succession and it wasn’t long before Goswami started batting.

She has bowled nearly 10,000 balls in ODI cricket, and she may just have inspired as many young girls to try cricket.

The Indian legend, playing in his 204th ODI, was unlucky to be run out for a golden duck in his final innings, but walked out to a guard of honour from the players.
Coincidentally, her last ODI was a golden duck out in the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup final against England at the same venue. One of the high points of Goswami’s career, the tournament ended with India losing the final.

Six years later, in his final series, Goswami was included in the Indian team that beat England in an ODI series in England for the first time in 23 years.
Historic series win for India in England which give Goswami a plenty of satisfaction to end her career and memories to cheerish for the rest of her life. She can be more proud of what she has done for the cricket and the nation for these 20 years.
