India pacer Jhulan Goswami has decided to call it quits from the shortest format of the game. She represented India in 68 T20Is picking up 56 wickets which included a five-wicket haul against Australia in 2012.

Goswami, a veteran of 10 Tests and 169 ODIs is currently the leading wicket-taker in the women’s ODI format and also the first woman cricketer to take 200 ODI wickets.

Goswami's memorable Test performance came against England at Taunton in 2006, where she took five wickets in each innings to finish with match figures of 10 for 78 to help India to a famous series victory.

She won the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Women’s Cricketer of the Year award in 2007, the first Indian player to win it. In 2010, she received the Arjuna Award and two years later, became only the second woman cricketer to be conferred the Padma Shri, after Diana Edulji.
