CAB to name stand after Jhulan
24th September 2022
CAB today celebrated the international career of iconic women cricketer Jhulan Goswami with plans to name a stand at Eden Gardens after her name.
In one of its kind honouring CAB organised the telecast of her last game at an Inox auditorium in South Kolkata before 170 budding women cricketers, CAB members and office bearers.
Talking at the venue, CAB President Avishek Dalmiya said: "We are planning to name a stand after Jhulan Goswami at Eden Gardens. She is a special cricketer and deserves to be with the legends. We will approach the army for the necessary permission. We are also planning a special felicitation for her on the annual day."
"At CAB we give equal importance to women's cricket and hence we see so many talented cricketers. They are of course inspired by Jhulan's achievements. Though she has retired from international cricket we would love her to play in the woman's IPL," he added.
CAB Hony Secretary Snehasish Ganguly said: "She is a legendary cricketer. She revolutionized women's cricket and especially fast bowling. We have made her the mentor of the Bengal Women's cricket as we want to get her valuable advice. We have plans to involve her in development of women's cricket. We also want her to play domestic cricket if she wants."
"We treat women's cricket with value and it shows as all our teams do so well domestically," he added.
Jhulan plays her final international game at Lord's as India take on England in an ODI.
