Jhulan Goswami created history on Wednesday by becoming the first female cricketer to claim 200 ODI wickets. She was elated after the achievement, more so because India won the second match against South Africa.
In an interview to bcci.tv, Goswami said, "I remember each of my 200 wickets, right from the beginning of my international career in 2002.”
She added, "I still remember I got Atkins out, caught in the slips. Mithali was in the slip and she caught that catch. Whenever I bowl at a crucial time in the match and end a partnership, it becomes special for me. I cannot pick one. All the wickets are planned. Every wicket is important.”
On the secret of her fitness, Goswami told BCCI.tv, "I do a lot of training. I believe in my training. As a fast bowler, you have to train hard as there are a lot of ups and downs. When things aren't working my way, it is the process that counts. I strongly believe that my training regime has helped me a lot because there is a lot of wear and tear.”
