In September 2022, Goswami announced her international retirement.
Jhulan Goswami, a former India cricketer and a legend of Indian women’s cricket, is set to join the Mumbai-based franchise in the inaugural Women’s Premier League as a mentor and bowling coach. After playing her final game at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground, the former India pacer announced her retirement from international cricket in September 2022.
The Women’s Premier League was officially announced earlier this month by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and five out of 17 bidders were successful in their bids. The Mumbai-based franchise was purchased by Indiawin Sports Pvt. Ltd. for INR 912.99 crore, out of a total bid of INR 4669.99 crore.
There had been reports that the Delhi Capitals-owned franchise had signed Jhulan Goswami for the WPL, but Ganguly, speaking to the media on Tuesday, January 31, said:
“Jhulan has left for Mumbai. We made her an offer, but she is leaving for Mumbai.”
The player auctions will be the next big thing for the first-ever WPL now that the teams have been finalised. Several Indian and international players had been waiting for the tournament to begin, and many had registered as soon as the announcement was made. Because the tournament is scheduled for March 2023, the auction will most likely take place in February.
