India's legendary pacer Jhulan Goswami and the top wicket-taker in ODIWs is set to retire after India's ODI series at England. Her last game in the Indian colours will be at Lord's. England star all-rounder Sophia Dunkley has wished a warm farewell to the pacer. 

Dunkley wishes farewell

"I think she's had an amazing career and I think she's someone who will be greatly missed in the women's game, I think she's such a friendly and smile-y and a really nice person as well, always very kind when I see her off the pitch," 

"Her stats and her results just show how good she is and the fact that she's still coming out and still bowling as good as she ever has is great to see and hopefully we can give her a good send-off here in the UK,"

How the first match fared 

India emerged victorious in the first match all thanks to gutsy Smriti Mandhana (91*), Harmanpreet Kaur (74) and Goswami's brilliant spell (1/20). 

The pacer bowled a phenomenal spell, taking one wicket and giving away just 20 runs. Restricting England to 227/7. India won the match with seven wickets to spare. 

The next fixture

India and England are set to lock horns again on September 21, this Wednesday at Canterbury and the third and final ODI will be played on September 24 at Lord's.
