In the past, many great cricketers like CK Nayudu, Vinoo Mankad, Vijay Merchant and Sachin Tendulkar have been honoured with commemorative postage stamps. Recently, Jhulan Goswami became the first Indian woman cricketer to join that illustrious list, and proved #ItsHerGameToo.

 

Goswami, the veteran India Women's pacer, added yet another feather to her already illustrious career, after she was was honoured with a commemorative stamp for her outstanding feats with the national side.


The all-time record wicket-taker in Women's ODIs, she recently became the first bowler to take 200 ODI wickets. Goswami overtook Australia's Cathryn Fitzpatrick as the world's leading wicket-taker last May.


Making her ODI debut in 2002, Goswami went onto take 203 wickets from 169 matches at an average of 21.77. In the ten Tests she has played in her career, the pacer has bagged 40 wickets at an average of 16.62 with three five-wicket hauls.

 

 

A postage stamp is the ideal way to commemorate Goswami's stellar career; she has always delivered for India in a 16-year career.

The 35-year-old recently picked up her 200th ODI wicket when she dismissed South Africa's Laura Woolvardt during India Women's tour of South Africa in February 2018. 

She was also awarded the ICC Women's Player of Year award in 2007.
