Jhulan Nishit Goswami is a former captain of the Indian women’s cricket team and an international cricketer from India. She, an all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm medium-fast, is regarded as one of the finest fast bowlers of all time, one of the fastest bowlers in women’s cricket history, and the fastest contemporary bowler since Cathryn Fitzpatrick’s retirement. Goswami retired from WT20Is in August 2018.
On November 25, 1982, Goswami was born into a middle-class family in Chakdaha, West Bengal. She was a football devotee before switching to cricket at the age of 15. After seeing the 1992 Cricket World Cup on TV, Goswami became interested in the sport. After seeing Australian batter Belinda Clark compete in the 1997 Women’s Cricket World Cup, she became even more interested in the sport.  Goswami flew to Kolkata to play cricket because Chakdaha had no cricket facilities at the time.
