Goswami took the record wicket in the 36th over of the innings against the West Indies. She scalped the wicket of Anisa Mohammed who chipped the ball straight up and mid-wicket went back to catch it.
In India’s opening match, she bowled a brilliant spell, returning 2/26, in India’s win over Pakistan. On Thursday, she equalled the tally of most wickets in the ICC Women’s World Cup against New Zealand.
In an illustrious career spanning two decades, Goswami has taken part in the five Women’s Cricket World Cups since 2005.
