India pacer Jhulan Goswami on August 23 decided to bid farewell to the shortest format of cricket as Goswami will no longer play for India in T20Is. The veteran pacer had 56 wickets to her account in 68 T20Is along with a five-wicket haul against Australia in 2012. 


Goswami thanked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and her teammates for all the love and support she garnered during her T20 stint with the team and wished them luck for their future games. 
BCCI and the entire Women’s national team wishes her the best and looks forward to her valuable contributions when she represents India in other two formats,” said BCCI, wishing Goswami good luck.

Goswami, a veteran of 10 Tests and 169 ODIs is currently the leading wicket-taker in the women’s ODI format and also the first woman cricketer to take 200 ODI wickets.

Goswami’s retirement from T20Is means that the senior cricketer will now not be a part of the Indian side for the women’s World T20, which is going to be held in West Indies in November 2019.
