Profile

Jhulan Goswami is one of the youngest members of this Indian squad. Although not very strongly built, she bowls with a smooth, easy run up and has formed a strong new-ball partnership with Amita Sharma. Goswami's strength lies in the fact that she generates movement off the pitch when she lands the ball on the seam and is now the fastest female bowler in the world, bowling at 120kph. Such pace seemed unlikely when she used to play tennis ball cricket with the lads as a young teen. "They asked me to stop bowling at them and just go and bat. It was then that I made up my mind to bowl fast." That she did - and she's been helped by Dennis Lillee at the MRF pace academy in Chennai.
