Jhulan Goswami becomes the highest wicket taker in women's ODIs

International Cricket Council

She finished with 3 for 20 in 7.3 overs. The 34-year-old pacer took three wickets against hosts South Africa during the ongoing Women's Quadrangular Series to achieve the landmark.

The Indian women's cricket team is now playing a quadrangular series in South Africa that involves, apart from the hosts, the women's teams from Ireland and Zimbabwe.

Goswami, who was named ICC Women's Cricketer of the Year in 2007, will spearhead India's quest to win their first ever ICC Women's World Cup later this summer.

Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami has become the leading wicket-taker in Women's One Day Internationals (ODI) going past Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick record of 180 wickets. India's Jhulan Goswami is now the leading wicket taker (181) in Women's ODIs.

Goswami, thus, broke Fitzpatrick's record of 180 wickets from 109 matches. India is now competing in a quadrangular series against Ireland, South Africa and Zimbabwe in Potchefstroom. Overall, she has 271 global wickets in 223 games and has scored 1593 runs with three fifties.

Acting BCCI president CK Khanna congratulated Jhulan for her achievement. She started following the game of cricket after watching the 1992 Cricket World Cup. Goswami also has two five-wicket hauls to her name in the 50-over format.
