Jhulan is ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year

India pace bowler Jhulan Goswami was on Monday night adjudged the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year. What made her honour special was the fact that Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Team India captain for the ICC World Twenty20, presented her the award.

The 24-year-old from Bengal has had a remarkable year, averaging 12.40 in Test matches and 21.80 in ODIs. Her accuracy with the ball is illustrated by her economy rate of 2.10 in Tests and 3.17 in ODIs.

Jhulan pipped Lisa Sthalekar of Australia and England’s Claire Taylor to the honour.

It’s a great achievement and our heartiest congratulations go out to her.
