Harmanpreet also reflected on Goswami’s immense contribution to Indian cricket.
“She’s someone who has taught us a lot,” Harmanpreet said. “When I debuted she was a leader and I learned a lot from her and now our young bowlers, like Renuka [Singh] and Meghna Singh… they are also learning from her. They are learning how she bowls and getting that rhythm from her. She’s been a great inspiration for all of us and we’ve learned a lot from her.”
Goswami has played 12 Tests, 68 T20Is and 203 ODIs and is the highest wicket-taker in the women’s game with 353 international wickets so far across formats.
