Senior Indian pace bowler Jhulan Goswami once again notched up her name in the records books as she achieved 250 wickets in One-Day International cricket on Wednesday. The 39-year-old became the first bowler in the history of women’s cricket to reach the milestone.

Former Australian pacer Cathryn Fitzpatrick and West Indies current vice-captain Anisa Mohammed are placed second and third on the list with each claiming 180 wickets in the 50-over format.

Initially, the on-field umpire turned down India’s appeal for the LBW, only for skipper Mithali Raj to opt for the DRS, the decision was reversed as Beaumont walked back to the dugout at the end of the third over.

Goswami played her first World Cup match against Sri Lanka in the 2005 Women’s World Cup in Pretoria, she bowled out Inoka Galagedara to claim her first wicket of the tournament and ended as the third-most wicket-taker of that edition with 13 wickets.

However, Goswami hasn’t picked a five-wicket haul in any of her World Cup matches as her best figures are 4/16. The senior Indian pace bowler has picked five wickets from four games so far in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022.

Goswami made her ODI debut against England women in January 2002 in Chennai, her first international wicket was Caroline Atkins.
