Indian women’s team fast bowler Jhulan Goswami today became the highest wicket-taker in history of ODIs. She eclipsed the decade-long record in the name of Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick.
Jhulan Goswami dismissed South Africa’s Raisibe Ntozakhe in an ongoing ODI to claim her 181st victim in the 50-over format, breaking Fitzpatrick’s record of 180 wickets from 109 matches. Goswami had figures of 3/20 in 7.3 overs.
Jhulan’s feat has been achieved in her 153rd match. She made her debut way back in 2002. Jhulan was also adjudged ICC’s ‘Women Cricketer of the Year’ in 2007.
Jhulan Goswami also has 40 wickets in 10 Tests and 50 wickets in 60 Twenty20 Internationals.
