Former Indian cricket team men’s captain and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, Sourav Ganguly, has now joined in on the wave of tributes for Jhulan.

‘With Jhulan announcing her retirement from international cricket, an era has come to an end,” said Ganguly in the BCCI’s statement. “She took immense pride in representing India and always put her best foot forward as she served Indian cricket with distinction. She was the leader of India’s bowling attack and her feats will continue to inspire present and budding cricketers. Her contribution to the game has been monumental. While her inspiring presence on the field will be missed, her achievements will continue to motivate upcoming cricketers.”

Jhulan retires as the most successful bowler in the history of women’s ODI cricket. She has taken 255 wickets in 204 ODIs, making her the only woman to cross the 200 and 250 marks in career tally in the format.

Incidentally, Jhulan had made her debut in an ODI match against England in Chennai in January 2002.
