Fast bowler surpasses record held by Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick

Fast bowler Jhulan Goswami is now the highest wicket-taker in one-day internationals in the women’s game. Goswami, who now has 181 wickets in 153 matches, surpassed the world record held by Australia bowler Cathryn Fitzpatrick (180).

The right-arm bowler broke the record in the ongoing match against hosts South Africa in the Women’s Quadrangular Series in Potchefstroom. Goswami, who finished with 3 for 20 in 7.3 overs, achieved the feat with the wicket of No.11 batsman Raisibe Ntozakhe.

Two Indian bowlers figure in the top five, with former left-arm spinner Neetu David now at No. 4 with 141 wickets. Goswami, who made her one-day debut back in 2002, is regarded as one of the fastest bowlers in the women’s game and has been India’s strike bowler in recent years. She has two five-wicket hauls in one-day internationals, with best bowling figures of 6 for 31.
