"The very thought of bowling a bouncer was like building castles in the air"- Jhulan Goswami opens up about her early playing days

Jhulan Goswami recently opened up about her initial playing days and revealed the reasons that prompted her to avoid bowling bouncers. Goswami explained that she aimed to maintain a bowling economy of around 3. Consequently, she avoided bowling bouncers since they could lead to extras or boundaries if not executed perfectly.

In an interview with The Cricket Monthly, the 39-year-old pacer said:

"I never developed it like I did some of my other deliveries because playing on Indian wickets in the early 2000s, the very thought of bowling a bouncer was like building castles in the air. My target used to be to keep my economy under three, three and a half, so if I bowled a bouncer and if it was not good, chances were it could go for wides or I'd be hit for a boundary."
Jhulan Goswami equals with Lynn Fullston for most wickets in ICC Women's ODI World Cup history - Legend.

Jhulan Goswami is currently representing the Indian team at the 2022 ICC Women's World Cup. So far, she has picked up three wickets after two games.
