Goswami, who hails from Nadia district in Bengal, has surpassed Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick to become the leading wicket-taker in Women's ODI cricket, taking her haul to 181 wickets from 153 outings.

"Congratulations to Jhulan Goswami for becoming the top wicket taker in Women's ODIs #cricket We are proud of you," Mamata tweeted.
