Acting BCCI President C. K. Khanna on Tuesday congratulated fast bowler Jhulan Goswami for becoming the highest wicket-taker in the history of ODIs, eclipsing the decade-long record in the name of Australia’s Cathryn Fitzpatrick.
“BCCI is proud of Jhulan’s achievement. Congratulations to Jhulan for becoming the leading wicket-taker in women’s ODI cricket,” Khanna said in a statement.
“The BCCI is committed to the promotion of women’s cricket which has seen remarkable improvement over the last few years,” he added.
Goswami on Tuesday dismissed South Africa’s Raisibe Ntozakhe in India’s seven-wicket win over the hosts in a Quadragular Series to claim her 181st victim in the 50-over format.
Goswami, thus, broke Fitzpatrick’s record of 180 wickets from 109 matches. Goswami had figures of 3/20 in 7.3 overs.
However, Goswami’s feat has been achieved in her 153rd match but that also speaks about her longevity in international cricket.
The 34-year-old Goswami, hailing from a small town called Chakdaha from Nadia district of West Bengal, made her debut way back in 2002.
