Indian team would like to give a memorable farewell to Jhulan Goswami by clean sweep, the third and last ODI match of the series will be played against England tomorrow.

London: The Indian team will clean sweep the three-match ODI series against England 3-0 when veteran fast bowler Jhulan Goswami plays the last match of his career at Lord’s on Saturday. Will try to bid on the monument. the farewell. It is every player’s dream to play cricket at Lord’s. Scoring a century or taking five wickets at this ground is considered a big achievement but very few players get a chance to bid farewell to their cricketing career at this historic ground.

Sunil Gavaskar (though he played his last first-class match here) didn’t get that chance. Be it Sachin Tendulkar or Brian Lara or Glenn McGrath, nobody got a chance to play their last match at Lord’s. Mithali Raj, who was Jhulan’s partner for almost 20 years, also did not get a chance to say goodbye to her career on the cricket field, but luckily Goswami is going to play her last match here. India have already taken an unbeaten 2-0 lead in the three-match series but will leave no stone unturned to bid a memorable farewell to Harmanpreet Kaur and her partner Jhulan with a clean sweep.

India did well in every department of the game in the first two matches against England and they will try to maintain the momentum. Harleen Deol has cemented her place in the middle order but after Jhulan’s retirement, fast bowlers Meghna Singh, Renuka Thakur and Pooja Vastrakar will have to step up their game.

As far as England are concerned, they are missing captain Heather Knight (due to injury) and star all-rounder Nat Seaver (due to mental health reasons) and due to this the balance of the team has also deteriorated. India last won an ODI series in England in 1999 while Jhulan did not even make his international debut. Now he is ready to play his 204th and last match. He has a record 353 international wickets to his name. The cricketer from Chakra, a small town in West Bengal, has been leading the Indian attack for the last 20 years. She has become the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year.

Shefali Verma and Richa Ghosh were not even born when Jhulan played for India and Jemima Rodrigues was probably playing on her lap. And now that she is retiring, Harmanpreet is her captain and Shefali, Jemima, Richa and Yastika Bhatia are her teammates. Now there is a plan to start Indian Premier League for women. Women have central contracts and they get a fair amount of money but when Jhulan started her career she faced a lot of struggles but she did not give up and by continuously improving her game she rose to the top in women’s cricket Went. It is certain that the Indian team will leave no stone unturned to sweep the series 3-0 to give a memorable farewell to such a player.

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Smriti Mandhana, Shefali Verma, Sabineni Meghna, Deepti Sharma, Yastika Bhatia (WK), Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, Renuka Thakur, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Harleen Deol, Dayalan Hemalta, Simran Dil Bahadur, Jhulan Goswami, Tania Bhatia and Jemima Rodrigues.

England: Amy Jones (c & wk), Tammy Beaumont, Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsi, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Alice Davidson-Riders, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Kemp, Issie Wong, Danny White.
