Jhulan Goswami, popularly known as Chakda Express, retired on Saturday at Lord’s, the Mecca of cricket. Now his name is going to be associated with another historic stadium. A stand at the Eden Gardens Stadium will be named after him.

CAB President Abhishek Dalmiya said- “We are going to name a stand at Eden Gardens after Jhulan Goswami. She is a special cricketer and deserves to be with the legend. We will ask the army for necessary permissions. CAB will also respect Jhulan.

Eden Gardens is the same stadium. Where 25 years ago today, Jhulan’s entry in the final of the 1997 World Cup was as a ball girl (girl who picked up the ball from outside the boundary).

Jhulan himself had disclosed this two days ago. The 39-year-old bowler had said- ‘I had gone to the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata to pick up the ball in the final match of the 1997-World Cup. There the final was played between Australia and New Zealand. That’s when I saw a women’s cricket match for the first time. That’s where I decided to make cricket a career and dreamed of playing India.

Today the world’s fastest bowler and highest wicket-taker have got the status.

Jhulan’s career at a glance…

  • Made his international debut on 6 January 2002. In his career spanning 19 years, Jhulan has played 283 matches. He has 355 wickets to his name.
  • The highest wicket-taker in the Women’s ODI World Cup. He has taken 43 wickets in 34 World Cup matches. She has taken 4 wickets twice in the World Cup.
  • Jhulan Goswami has scored 1,924 runs in his international career. It also includes 3 fifties. 2 half-centuries have come in Tests, while one in ODIs.
  • She has already retired from T20 and Test. He played the last T20 match for India in 2018 and the last Test in October 2021.

Used to go to practice 80 KM everyday
Fifth note of musical scale. Born in Chakda, Bengal, Jhulan started her career at the age of 15. She was selected for Team India at the age of 19. Boys were not allowed to play near the house. That’s why used to go to practice 80 KM away.

Was waiting for the farewell match for a long time
Jhulan was waiting for the farewell match for a long time. BCCI was trying to give her a farewell in the ODI World Cup played in New Zealand itself, but she could not play in the last league match against South Africa due to injury. In the opening match, he took 2 wickets for 19 runs against Bangladesh.
