Indian captain Rohit Sharma has praised the women’s team’s fast bowler Jhulan Goswami. Rohit said that the youth of the country can learn a lot from Jhulan. Rohit revealed that he too could not face Jhulan Goswami’s in-swinger on one occasion while batting at the NCA. It is worth noting that Jhulan can say goodbye to international cricket after the end of the ongoing ODI series against England.

Rohit Sharma said in a press conference before the start of the three-match T20 series against Australia, ‘I had a conversation with him when I went to the NCA after the injury. Jhulan was also there and bowling to me. I was very upset by his in-swinger. Jhulan Goswami is a leased one. He has shown passion for the country, youth of the country can learn a lot from him.
