Along with this milestone, Goswami is now the 2nd most player with the longest cricketing career in the history of women’s cricket; a career of more than 19 years.

Jhulan started her cricketing career a decade ago, she first debuted for India in ODI against England’s Women on Jan 6, 2002. A few days later on Jan 14 Goswami make her first appearance in test cricket. She made her t20 debut against England in 2006.

Goswami is now 39 years old but her spirit and temperament towards the game of cricket are remarkable. She has been a key player for India in every game and her experienced in bowling makes the young brats of the women’s team more skilled.
I asked #JhulanGoswami about this record in the pre-match press conference
Answer: Honestly speaking I am not aware of this record. I don't know how many wickets I have in the World Cup. As a senior member of the team, I want to perform well. (1/2)#CWC22 #WIvIND pic.twitter.com/BU1A4Nez9P
