“The Lord’s game is very special for us because it’s Jhulan’s retirement.
We wanted to enjoy that game without any pressure and I’m really happy that we were able to win today and now we can just have fun in that game.”
“It’s very important because that will be her last game,” Harmanpreet added. “It will be a very emotional moment for all of us and we definitely want to win that game. Moreover after winning the series now we just want to have fun because I know it’s the last game for her. We will definitely look to win that game but moreover we will just go and have fun there.”
“She’s someone who has taught us a lot,” said Harmanpreet who made her ODI debut in 2009 when Goswami was captain. “When I debuted she was a leader and I learned a lot from her and now our young bowlers, like Renuka [Singh] and Meghna Singh, they are also learning from her. They are learning how she bowls and getting that rhythm from her. She’s been a great inspiration for all of us and we’ve learned a lot from her.”
