Veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami has become only the second cricketer after captain Mithali Raj to make 200 appearances in women’s ODIs. The encounter against Australia in Auckland at the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 marked 200th One-day International in Jhulan’s illustrious career.
Meanwhile, captain Mithali is playing her 230th ODI for India. The Indian duo surpassed former England captain Charlotte Edwards who previously held the record for most ODI appearances. With 150 appearances, South Africa’s Mignon du Preez is closest to the Indian pair. (ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 India vs Australia Live Score)
