We should have DRS in every series: Jhulan Goswami | Cricket News


KOLKATA: Back in the city after the ODIs and pink-ball Test in Australia, India women’s cricket team pacer Jhulan Goswami is looking forward to a break with her family in Chakdah before getting back to business.
Here, she talks about the tour Down Under…
Excerpts:
How was the tour Down Under?
Playing Australia is always challenging. They are one of the premier teams in world cricket. This tour was all about mental toughness and I was prepared for the challenge. With 3 wickets in the one-off Test and 4 in 3 ODIs, I am glad to have done my bit.
Any regrets about failing to defend 13 runs in the last over of the second ODI?
We could have won the series. It was a day-night fixture and there was a tremendous amount of dew on the field. I was unable to grip the ball. The dew was not cleared off the field during the drinks break, which made things worse. My front foot was slipping on the delivery stride. But we came back well and chased 265 in the third match to win it. It was a kind of redemption.
The no-ball in the last over was controversial…
Calling a no-ball for a full toss is the umpire’s discretion. The umpire’s decision is the final one. I cannot be a judge about the umpiring standards. But we should have DRS in every series.
Tell us about the pink-ball experience…
The gloss over the pink ball makes it swing more, especially in the twilight zone. It was a wonderful experience. The match was thrilling, and we could have had a result if rain had not spoiled two sessions.
Do you think the Women’s Test should be a five-day affair?
Five-day Test will be good. But that depends on how ICC wants to promote women’s cricket. If India are to play Tests regularly, the BCCI will need to produce a multi-day format for us.
What is your best Test memory?
The 2006 series, where we beat England in their own backyard. I had bagged 10 wickets and was named the Player of the Series. Also, the 2014 series against England that we won again. The pink-ball Test would make the list as this was an amazing contest.
One pacer with whom you would have loved to share the new ball with?
I would have loved to bowl with Cathryn Fitzpatrick in at least one match. She was one of my favourites. Among the present lot, it would be Katherine Brunt.
Kirsten Beams suggested the Australia-India series be named after you and Fitzpatrick…
(Laughs) Is that so? It is nice of her, but I have nothing to say about this.
Tell us about the World Cup preparation next year.
I will have to keep working on my fitness and be careful about injuries. There is a lot of soreness after this tour. I will have to recover quickly. Right now, I am focusing on leading Bengal in domestic matches.
