Jhulan Goswami honoured with postage stamp

Veteran Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami was honoured with a postage stamp on Friday (April 20) for her feats in women’s cricket. Goswami had recently become the first women’s cricketer to fetch 200 wickets in the ODIs after becoming the leading wicket-taker in the format last year.
She overtook Australia’s Cathryn Fitzpatrick as the world’s leading wicket-taker in the format, in the Quadrangular series in South Africa last May.
The stamp features her photo and was unveiled at the Calcutta Sports Journalists’ club in the presence of former India captain Sourav Ganguly.
Goswami made her ODI debut in 2002 and since then has taken 203 wickets from 169 matches at an average of 21.77. In the ten Tests she has played, she has bagged 40 wickets at an astonishing average of 16.62 with three five-wicket hauls.
