Jhulan Goswami (Cricketer) biography, biodata, wiki, age, date of birth, height, husband, family, education, religion, caste & more

She was born on 25 November 1982 to a middle-class family in Chakdaha in the Nadia district of West Bengal. At the age of 15, she took up cricket. She started taking an interest in cricket when she watched the 1992 Cricket World Cup on TV. In sport, she took further interest after watching Australian batter Belinda Clark in the 1997 Women's Cricket World Cup. But at that time, her town Chakdaha did not have any cricket facilities and so she traveled to Kolkata to play cricket.

After finishing her training in Kolkata, she was called up to the Bengal women's cricket team. In 2002, she made her international debut at the age of 19 in a one-day international match against England in Chennai. On 14 January 2002, her Test debut came against England in Lucknow.

In 2006, she was earmarked for a leadership role when she was named vice-captain of the national team ahead of the tour of England. She helped India to win the Test series, including their first victory against England. She made fifty as a night watchman in the first Test at Leicester and took her career-best match figures of 10 for 78 - 5 for 33 and 5 for 45 - in the second Test at Taunton. This success made her the Player of the Series and also brought recognition at the Castrol Awards in Mumbai in September. Here, she received a Special Award. 

Further, in 2007, she won the ICC Women's Player of Year. This was the year when no Indian male player bagged any individual award. Soon after, she became the captain of the national team. She took over the captaincy from Mithali Raj later in 2008 and held it till 2011. She also became the fourth woman to reach 100 wickets in ODIs at Asia Cup in 2008. She was awarded the Arjuna Award in 2010 and she became the second Indian women cricketer to receive Padma Shri after Diana Edulji in 2012.

In 10 matches, she has 40 test wickets to her name and she has 271 international wickets in 223 games and has scored 1593 runs with three 50s. During the Women's Quadrangular Series, she achieved the feat. She also became the first woman cricketer to reach 200 wickets in one day of cricket in February 2018. She has 995 runs in 166 matches in ODIs. She took 6 for 31 against New Zealand in 2011, but India failed to win. 

She became the leading wicket-taker in ODIs in May 2017 when she took her 181st wicket against South Africa at PUK Oval, Potchefstroom, surpassing Australia's Cathryn Fitzpatrick. She was also part of the Indian team to reach the final of the 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup where the team lost to England by 9 runs. She took her 300th wicket in international cricket against Sri Lanka in September 2018. She was nominated in November 2020 for the ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Decade award.

Goswami was named in India's Test squad for their one-off match against the England women's cricket team in May 2021. She was named to India's team for the 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup in New Zealand in January 2022. She announced her retirement from WT20Is in August 2018. 

Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma will soon be seen in Jhulan Goswami's biopic. The name of the film is Chakda Xpress. Talking about the film, Anushka wrote in her post: “Chakda Xpress is inspired by the life and times of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami and it will be an eye-opener into the world of women’s cricket. At a time when Jhulan decided to become a cricketer and make her country proud on the global stage, it was very tough for women to even think of playing the sport. This film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women’s cricket.” 

Anushka added, "From support systems to facilities, to have a stable income from playing the game, to even having a future in cricket – very little propelled women of India to take up cricket as a profession. Jhulan had a fighting and extremely uncertain cricketing career and she stayed motivated to make her country proud. She strived to change the stereotype that women can’t make a career out of playing cricket in India so that the next generation of girls had a better playing field. Her life is a living testimony that passion and perseverance triumph over any or all adversities and Chakda Xpress is the most definitive look into the not-so-rosy world of women’s cricket back then. There is still a lot of work to be done and we have to empower them with the best so that the sport can flourish for women in India."

In the end, she wrapped her statement with these words, "We should all salute Jhulan and her team-mates for revolutionizing women’s cricket in India. It is their hard work, their passion, and their undefeated mission to bring attention to women’s cricket that has turned things around for generations to come. As a woman, I was proud to hear Jhulan’s story and it is an honor for me to try and bring her life to audiences and cricket lovers. As a cricketing nation, we have to give our women cricketers their due. Jhulan’s story is truly an underdog story in the history of cricket in India and the film is our celebration of her spirit."

At that time, a girl traveling alone by train every day to play cricket was the most unusual thing you would ever hear. But not for Jhulan. Only in her teens, the youngster would travel for three days a week to Kolkata. She would catch the 5 am train from Chakdaha to Sealdah in Kolkata.

From there on, the 15-year-old would then reach the cricket practice by 7.30 am through the bus. After completion of her practice by 9.30, it was another two-hour sojourn back to her hometown where she would have to report to school. This exhausting four-hour trek on a packed train would seem to be burdensome.

But for an indomitable Goswami, it was essential to toughen her up mentally, as she later revealed. “It was really a tiring schedule, as I had to travel for more than five hours in a day, then come back, have a rest for a while and again go back for studies. There was less time to rest and more time to work,” she recalled. Soon, a 19-year-old Goswami made it to the Bengal women’s team. After a promising debut season with Bengal, Goswami paved her way into the East Zone team. And this is where she took her first big leap toward international cricket.

During the game between East Zone and Air India in 2000, Goswami was impressed with her pace and ability to move the ball. She finished the match with 3/13 in 10 overs, against the Air Indian side which included top players like Anju Jain. Post-match, she received an offer to join the Air India team, and never looked back.

In no time, an Indian call-up followed. She made her India debut, in the ODI against England in Chennai. Goswami began England’s route as he picked opener Caroline Atkins’ wicket. She then caught Lucy Pearson in front of the stumps as England crashed for just 106 at Chennai.

Goswami finished with an impressive debut figure of 2/15 before India’s top order finished the job. She continued tormenting the English top order as well, finishing with the figures of 3/8 in her quota of five overs. Goswami soon established herself as a mainstay in the Indian National Women’s Cricket team.

Jhulan was not bad with the bat in test cricket. The Bengal player has scored two half-centuries for India in test cricket. Incidentally, both of them have come against England away. As the Indian women’s team rarely plays Test matches, Goswami has managed to compete in only ten Tests over a 16-years of an illustrious career.

The zenith of her Test performance came against England at Taunton in 2006, where she took five wickets in each inning and finished with match figures of 10 for 78 to help India to a famous series victory. For the Indian team, that was a first test series win against England, in England.

Goswami was also a part of the 2009 and 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup. In the 2009 World Cup in Australia, she finished with a slightly lesser 4 wickets in 7 matches. In 2013, she had a better campaign. India, as hosts faltered and fell out of the group stage. Goswami picked 9 wickets in 4 matches as India finished 7th.

Later in 2017, she guided the Indian team to the finals of the Women’s ODI World Cup final, before going down in the finals against hosts England. In that, she took 3 wickets for only 23 runs in 10 overs to limit the host’s total to 228/7. However, England went on to narrowly win the trophy by 9 runs.

In 2005, she was named in the squad for the Women’s World Cup, South Africa. Later in December the same year, she picked 5 for 16 in Silchar as India sunk England to 50 all out. She went on to pick five or more wickets in an innings once again in 2011 against New Zealand women at Southgate.

Veteran Team India pacer Jhulan Goswami created history on Wednesday (March 16) in their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 match against England by becoming the first-ever woman pacer to claim 250 wickets in ODI cricket. Jhulan reached the milestone with the wicket of England opener Tammy Beaumont, who she trapped leg-before.

Jhulan is way ahead of the competition when it comes to the 50-over format. Following Jhulan on the list is Australia’s Cathryn Fitzpatrick who has 180 scalps to her name. West Indies’ Anisa Mohammed is also tied in the second spot with 180 wickets. South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail and England’s Katherine Brunt are next with 168 and 164 dismissals to their name respectively.

Earlier in the tournament, Jhulan had Created History in women's cricket by becoming the first cricketer ever to take 40 wickets in Women’s World Cups, going past Australia’s Lyn Fallston. However, the rest of the Indian team disappointed against England as they were bundled out for just 134 after batting first. England women in reply strolled to a four-wicket win with 112 balls to spare.

Charlie Dean clinched career-best figures of 4/23 in the 50-over format as India was bowled out for a paltry 134 in a must-win league match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 at Bay Oval. Captain Heather Knight’s decision to bowl first on a fresh pitch that looked dry paid off as India’s top and middle-order just couldn’t get going. The defending champions bowled fuller, fielded well, took their catches, and were bang-on with their run-outs.

Mastika Bhatia fetched India’s first boundary with a gentle push in the gap between mid-on and mid-wicket off Katherine Brunt. But Anya Shrubsole (two for 20) provided England with their first breakthrough as Bhatia pushed away from her body to a full inswinger and saw the ball take an inner edge to stumps. Bhatia thus became Shrubsole’s 100th wicket in the format.

Smriti Mandhana picked boundaries off a free-flowing drive and a quick short-arm jab. But England, with fuller lines and a more proactive attitude in the field, continued to deal blows to India. Mithali Raj’s lean run continued as she sliced straight to cover-point, giving Shrubsole her second wicket in power-play.

The pressure of dot balls preventing Deepti Sharma to get off the mark resulted in her running for a non-existent single by driving straight to mid-off. But Kate Cross, at mid-off, inflicted a direct hit, catching Sharma short of the crease for a 10-ball duck.

Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur restored normalcy for India with a 33-run partnership off 50 balls for the fourth wicket. But Dean’s entry in the 17th over changed the situation as the off-spinner got rid of Harmanpreet and Sneh Rana in a double-wicket maiden over.

Jhulan Goswami Biography: Cricket is a gentlemen’s game, they say, but the women’s cricketing world is equally exciting and entertaining. Cricket, as such, is very much a ladies’ game too, in fact, the first Women’s World Cup was held in 1973, 2 years before the first men’s World Cup. The first women’s test match was played in 1934, between England and Australia.

Jhulan Goswami Biography: Jhulan was born on 25th November 1982 in the small town of Chakdah, in the Nadia District of West Bengal. Her father, Nishit Goswami, and mother, Jharna Goswami brought her up with a lot of love and care. Growing up in a normal middle-class family, Jhulan had an affinity for sports from a very young age, something that was not encouraged in small-town girls during those times. Her parents were concerned that Jhulan would grow up to be different than the other girls of her age and would find a hard time fitting into society.

But young Jhulan was adamant. Her desire for sports was unquenchable and it only grew with age. Her first love though was football. The young girl loved playing football and watching her heroes play the beautiful game on the television. However, all that changed in 1992, when she watched the1992 Cricket World Cup on the T.V. Jhulan was bitten by the cricket bug; she felt a deep connection that drew her to the game. Because none of the girls her age played the game, Jhulan started playing with the boys in her neighborhood, drawing criticism. Like every middle-class family, Jhulan’s family also wanted her to pursue a normal life and concentrate on their studies. But Cricket had taken over Jhulan’s life for good and the young girl knew that all she wanted was to play the game.

Jhulan Goswami The first hurdle Jhulan faced was convincing her parents to let her play the game. While it took some time, there were far greater problems at hand. The small town hardly had the infrastructure to support her in her quest and Jhulan knew that she had to train at Kolkata. The next complication was that Kolkata was a good two hours away from Chakdah and because she was still studying in school, Jhulan could not immediately relocate to the big City. There seemed no other way out and it looked like her dreams of making it big as a cricketer would be shattered due to the lack of a chance.

On the verge of giving up on her dreams, Jhulan made a decision that shaped her life. She knew she could not give up school and she certainly could not live if she gave up cricket. Jhulan decided to travel to Kolkata for training, and then come back and attend school on the same day. It was an extremely difficult routine, but the young girl was fuelled by a desire that could move mountains and as such, nothing seemed impossible anymore.

Jhulan started an extremely tenacious routine to pursue her passion. For three days a week, the teenage girl would wake up before dawn and board the 5 trains to Kolkata. By 7:30 am, she would reach her practice ground and after a couple of hours of practice, she would board the train again, to return home and go to school.

For three days a week, Jhulan toiled, strived, and endured hardship, but never gave up on her dreams. It shaped her character, gave her the will to fight, and turned her into a champion. With her family convinced and backing her now, Jhulan was ready to conquer the world.

Jhulan Goswami rose steadily through the cricketing circuit. Her desire continued to power her forward as she successfully turned into a pretty impressive fast bowler. Still, in her teens, Jhulan then got the opportunity of a lifetime in 1997.

The 1997 Women’s Cricket World Cup was held in India and 11 teams competed to outdo each other to win the grand prize. The tournament was played around the country on 25 different cricket grounds. Australia and New Zealand reached the final, which was scheduled for 29th December, at Eden Gardens. For young Jhulan Goswami, it was an opportunity of a lifetime, because she was one of the ball girls for the mega event and had the chance to watch her idols play from the sidelines. It was here that she was mesmerized by Belinda Clark, the swashbuckling Australian Skipper. After Australia had won the game and the World Cup, Clark went on a victory lap and won over little Jhulan watching from the sidelines. At that very moment, the young girl had an epiphany.

Jhulan realized that wanted to play cricket for her country and win games. There was nothing else that mattered. She imagined herself in Clark’s shoes, going on a victory lap after winning a game and the seed of success was planted in her heart on that very day.

Jhulan Goswami was in her teens when she was selected for the Bengal Cricket Team. There were very few fast bowlers like her in the country and Jhulan was impressed while playing for her state. It paved the path for her to make their way into the Indian Women’s Cricket Team. She was just 19 when she was selected to play for her country in 2002.

The Chakdah girl made her debut for the Indian Team in Chennai in 2002, when Indian eves faced England in a One Day International. She made her test debut against the same opponents in the same year, in Lucknow. Despite starting out as a bowler, Jhulan had become pretty proficient with the bat as well. When India visited England in 2002, Jhulan set up a world record 7th wicket partnership with Mithali Raj of 157 runs at Taunton. It was one of the biggest moments of her life and Jhulan had announced her arrival to the world in style. She had made a successful transition from a fast bowler to an efficient allrounder.

Jhulan Goswami continued to ride up the ranks and soon established herself as one of the most lethal bowlers in women’s cricket. She now picked up the name Chakdah Express and was an integral part of the Indian Women’s Cricket team that reached the final of the 2005 World Cup. Unfortunately, the Indian Ladies faltered in the final at the SuperSport Park, Centurion, against a strong Australian side and lost the game by 98 runs.

It was a disappointing moment after a fantastic run in the tournament, but it provided a valuable experience for the team. Jhulan had impressed her team, finishing the tournament with 13 wickets, with an average of 13.53, a strike rate of 29.6, and an economy of 2.74. Her best bowling figure was 4/16, against West Indies on 1st April.

Jhulan Goswami Not one to fret about defeats for too long, Jhulan Goswami took to the nets to better herself. She had identified her weaknesses and was determined to take her career to the next step. The opportunity arrived in 2006 when the Indian eves traveled to England for a Test series.

In the first test, Jhulan showed her batting prowess. At Leicester, the Chakdah girl took over as the night watchman and produced an efficient half-century that enabled the path for India to win their first-ever test against England. Jhulan received rave reviews for her efforts, but she was not done yet.

In the second test, it was time for her to show her bowling efficiency. Jhulan smashed the English batting attack with the ball, ending the test with a figure of 10 for 78, which has been the best of her career. She took 5 for 33 in the first innings and then followed it up with 5 for 45 in the second innings. Her team rode her brilliant performance with both the bat and the ball to win the series and etched their name in history. It was the first time that India had won a test series against England.

There was naturally a huge cheer in the country and in Jhulan’s hometown of Chakdah. However, the best was yet to come, as, in the next year, Jhulan Goswami won the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year, 2007.

 In 2008, Mithali Raj stepped down from Captaincy and the armband was passed to Jhulan Goswami. She held on to the post until 2011 and enjoyed moderate success with the team. It was also in 2008, during the Asia Cup, that Jhulan Goswami became only the 4th woman to reach 100 wickets in One Day Internationals. Jhulan would go on to lead India in 25 One Day Internationals.

Her contribution to sports was rewarded in 2010 when Jhulan has bestowed the Arjuna Award. In 2011, she was adjudged as the best women cricketer in the country and won the M. A. Chidambaram trophy. Jhulan continued her good form on the pitch and was so impressive that in 2012 she was awarded the fourth highest Civilian Award, the Padma Shri. She became only the second Indian Woman Cricketer after Diana Edulji, to win the prestigious award. Jhulan went from strength to strength through the years and in 2016, she hit ferocious form, clinching the No. 1 spot in ICC Women’s ODI bowling rankings

Goswami returned with figures of 3-37 from her 10 overs to play a big role in India’s win in the third and final ODI. Goswami stayed unbeaten with eight in the chase. She was adjudged player of the match for her performance.

India lost the three-match series 1-2. Two no balls by Goswami became a prime reason for India’s loss in the second ODI On Friday. Her second no-ball was to be the final delivery of the match with Australia in need of three runs.  That illegitimate delivery put paid to India’s chances as the eventual last ball was sent towards wide long-on for two runs by the Australians to seal the series.

The final match of the 1997 Women s World Cup was being played at Jhulan s home ground, which is the famous Eden Gardens of Kolkata. Australia and New Zealand were playing the final match and she was asked to volunteer as the ball girl in that game. After watching such legendary figures of women s cricket as Belinda Clark, Debbie Hockey, and Cathryn Fitzpatrick, she decided to make her career in cricket.

Jhulan was the winner of the ICC Women s Cricketer of the Year award in 2007. She had a very good bowling average of below 22 in both Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODI) and consistently bowled at a low economy rate. She received this award from MS Dhoni. In an interview, Jhulan describes that moment as icing on the cake with a big smile on her face.

During the Indian Women s tour of England in 2006, Jhulan was the key player behind India s first Test series win in England the women s team. She took five wickets in both the innings and outplayed the English women s team. Her figures in both the innings were 13-4-33-5 and 36.2-21-45-5. It is the only 10 wicket maiden for Jhulan.

Out of her 177 ODI wickets, Jhulan has taken the most wickets against England. In her 44 ODIs against England, she has taken 63 wickets at 18.64, and also her best figures in the limited-over format are also against the same team with five for 16.

Jhulan started playing cricket at the age of 15. She used to wake up at 4:30 in the morning to catch the local train and reach the practice session. She lives 80 km away from Kolkata, where the practice session took place. Many times she missed the train and could t make it to the practice but she never gave up. Like other Indian parents, Jhulan s parents too wanted her to concentrate more on their studies than cricket.

 n an interview on Cricfit.com, Jhulan revealed her many favorite things. Starting with cuisine, Jhulan prefers Chinese but when it comes to movies, she loves 3 Idiots and actor Aamir Khan is her favorite. Whereas, Kajol is her favorite actress and her favorite sportsperson is Diego Maradona. Coming on to her favorite destination, London, while she likes to read books as well.

Jhulan Goswami from Bengal has yet again created history, this time with stupendous innings taking India’s women’s cricket team to a fabulous victory. In the 2nd ODI series against New Zealand, India has knocked out the hosts in their very own backyard. Last Monday, Virat- Rohit celebrated their victory on the field. Within a span of twenty-four hours, yet another triumph was marked at Bay Oval, when the Indian women’s team defeated the New Zealand team. In the history of cricket, this is the first time that both men's and women's cricket teams of India have won the series on foreign soil.

In the last match, India had registered a massive 9-wicket victory which had left the women of New Zealand unnerved and under pressure. On Tuesday too, Indian women put up a spectacular fight. The team won the toss and captain Mithali Raj took the decision of bowling first. Jhulan Goswami proved the decision correct in the very first over. She knocked off Suzie Bates in the fourth ball itself. Sophie Divine also returned to the pavilion soon. Amy Satterthwaite was the only one whose performance was at par with the indomitable performance of Indian bowlers. Within 44.2 overs, New Zealand was all out.

Bengal’s Jhulan Goswami yet again proved to be the most successful bowler, by taking three wickets. Ekta Bisti, Poonam Yadav, and Deepti Sharma took two wickets each, while Shikha Pandey took only one wicket. While batting, we lost the wicket of Jemimah Rodrigues in just 0 runs. Smriti Mandhana with the partnership with Mithali Raj turned saviors. The batting performance of the team was equally good. They scored the runs needed to win the match within 35.2 overs. Smriti and Mithali remained unbeaten at 90 and 63 respectively.

With this iconic victory, India won the first two matches of the series of three matches. Simultaneously, Mithali and the team also ended up winning the series with impeccable performance, creating history in New Zealand. 

Jhulan Goswami has become the joint-highest wicket-taker in ICC Women’s World Cup history having taken her tally from the marquee events to 39 wickets and is now level with former Australia cricketer Lyn Fallston. Jhulan equaled the record on Thursday during India’s second match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 against hosts New Zealand when she dismissed Katey Martin in the final over in Hamilton.

If the BCCI were to institute a 'Hall of Fame' for women's cricket in India, Jhulan Goswami would certainly feature. A decade and a half since bursting onto the scene, Goswami, one of the fastest bowlers in the women's game till not too long ago, has reaped rewards through control and minute deviations off the pitch. In May, she surpassed Cathryn Fitzpatrick to become the highest wicket-taker in women's ODI history. Now, she doubles up as a mentor to a young group of fast bowlers coming through the ranks in India.

She was earmarked for a leadership role when she was named vice-captain of the national team ahead of the tour of England in 2006. There, she helped India to the Test series win, including their first victory against England, making a fifty as a night watchman in the first Test at Leicester and taking her career-best match figures of 10 for 78 - 5 for 33 and 5 for 45 - in the second Test at Taunton.

Such feats made her the Player of the Series and also brought recognition at the Castrol Awards in Mumbai in September, where she received a Special Award. Further to that, she won the ICC Women's Player of Year in 2007 - a year no Indian male player bagged any individual award. Soon after, she was elevated to the captain of the national team. Then in 2010, she was conferred with the prestigious Arjuna Award. A Padma Shri followed two years later.

Bowling exploits aside, Goswami is a more-than-handy lower-order batsman. Goswami partnered Mithali Raj for a better part of her record-breaking 214 against England at Taunton in 2002. The pair added 157, with Goswami chipping in with 62. England was also the scene of India's one-off Test win in 2014, where Goswami triggered the hosts' slide with a four-wicket haul to set up the win. In 2015, she was one of four senior players who were handed the highest grade of central contracts by BCCI for the first time.

“It is a really special film because it is essentially a story of tremendous sacrifice. Chakra Xpress is inspired by the life and times of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami and it will be an eye-opener into the world of women’s cricket,” Anushka Sharma said in a statement issued by the streamer on Thursday.

“At a time when Jhulan decided to become a cricketer and make her country proud on the global stage, it was very tough for women to even think of playing the sport. This film is a dramatic retelling of several instances that shaped her life and also women’s cricket,” the actor said, calling the film “an underdog story” in the history of Indian cricket. Goswami also spoke about the challenges she faced in her career at a time when the prevailing notion was that “women can’t play cricket”.

“It doesn’t matter if sometimes a man’s accomplishments are placed above your own. It doesn’t matter if the stadiums are empty. When you pull up onto the pitch to bowl, all you see is the opponent holding the cricket bat and the stumps you need to knock out,” the cricketer, who hails from Chakdaha town in the Nadia district of West Bengal, said.

“Team India is not just the roaring sound of 1.3 billion voices cheering and praying. Sometimes, it is one girl from Chakda playing a game of cricket with her team shaking, screaming for, and rising together when the stumps are finally knocked out,” she added. The all-rounder said, “Chakda Xpress is now filming. Meet you on the field.”

Pratiksha Rao, Director, Films and Licensing, Netflix India, said, “We are deeply honored and proud to bring this story of an unlikely champion and her contribution to Indian cricket to Netflix, and are thrilled to partner with Clean Slate Filmz and with Anushka Sharma who has won audiences through the many unique roles she’s performed with heartfelt emotion and passion.”

 Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is making a comeback after three long years with her new film Chakda Xpress which is a biography of Bengali female Indian cricketer Jhulan Goswami, who was the captain of the India national women’s cricket team.

Cricket-based movies have become a very popular trend in Bollywood these days. Ranveer Singh’s ’83’ is already in theatres while Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ and Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Shabbas Mithu’ are awaiting their much-awaited release. Amidst all this, actress Anushka announced that she’s going to star as cricketer Jhulan Goswami in the film ‘Chakda Xpress.’

Although, Anushka seems quite happy and excited about her comeback project. Anushka shared the teaser of Chakda Xpress on Thursday and Twitter has a lot to say, there are several people stated that she is not the right fit for Jhulan’s role. While some users pointed out that Anushka could have picked another film for her ‘comeback’, given her ‘weird’ Bengali accent and the poor attempt at darkening her skin didn’t match with Jhulan at all.

One disappointed Twitter user wrote, “As much as I love her, she does NOT fit this role and tbh this is kinda cringing.” Another one wrote, “Jhulan Goswami is one of the biggest sports icons in India. She deserves better. Anushka Sharma isn’t looking suitable for the role. Height, color nothing matches with Legend Goswami. Even her Bengali accent is very cringed”, while another one added: “The way she’s telling ‘Kintu china korona. Seems like the filmmakers thought Jhulan was a probate Bangali (an expatriate Bengali).”

Another user who pointed out the miscast shared that a Bengali actress should’ve been chosen to play Jhulan. They wrote, “A Bengali actress must have been chosen for this role. Leave casting to Bollywood and they’ll end up casting Robert Pattinson for Martin Luther King Jr.’s biopic.”

India pacer Jhulan Goswami on Saturday became the all-time leading wicket-taker in the history of the ICC Women's World Cup. Jhulan achieved the feat during India's win over the West Indies in their third match of the tournament at the Seddon Park. She dismissed Anisa Mohammed to register her 40th dismissal in the Women's World Cup. The 39-year-old went past former Australia cricketer Lyn Fallston, who had taken 39 wickets in Women's World Cups. Fans took to Twitter on Saturday and lauded the veteran pacer on her achievement.

The Bengal pacer achieved the feat during India’s match against the West Indies at Seddon Park in Hamilton with the wicket of Anisa Mohammed. With her first wicket, Jhulan took her tally to 40 wickets in the ICC Women’s World Cup, overtaking the previous record of 39 by Australia’s Lyn Fallston. The previous record has stood for 34 years.

The match against the West Indies was Jhulan’s 31st in the ICC Women’s World Cup. The pacer, 39, is representing India in her fifth tournament, having previously turned out for the country in 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2017 as well. India beat West Indies by a huge 155-run margin to register their second victory of the tournament. Opting to bat first, India recovered from a bad start to post 317 for eight in 50 overs. Smriti Mandhana top-scored with 123, while Harmanpreet Kaur smashed 109 to lay the foundation for a dominant win.

In response, the West Indies got off to a blistering start before Sneh Rana struck twice in a short spell to put India back on track. West Indies were finally bowled out for 162. Rana took three wickets while Meghna Singh picked up two. Speaking to the press following the victory, the southpaw Smriti hailed Harmanpreet’s contribution to the victory. “From the outset, I feel when her back is towards the wall, that’s when she comes the best out and that’s something which I’ve seen,” Press Trust of India quoted the batter as saying.

Smriti also shared her Player-of-the-Match award with Harmanpreet. The two batters had put together a stand of 184 runs — the highest for India for any wicket in the history of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.
