Didn't know India broke Australia's ODI win streak: Jhulan Goswami

Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami said that she was determined to step up as the team's senior player in the third ODI against Australia

Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami said that she didn't know that the team had snapped Australia's ODI world record of 26 consecutive victories following the 2-wicket win in the third match at Mackay on Sunday. Goswami, whose final over no-ball in the second ODI resulted in an narrow loss, put in a sensational performance in the third ODI with 3-37 as India ended the series 1-2.

"I didn't know about the record but when we came in at the break after the Australian innings, we knew that the wicket was very flat," Goswami said in a virtual press conference.

Goswami also hit the winning runs and remained not out on 8 as India recorded their best ODI chase by overcoming Australia's 264. 

"We were just trying to stay there and finish the game. On Friday, it was difficult for bowlers and today as the senior bowler I wanted to stand up and use the new ball well. I told Meghna (Singh) that make sure that we stay till the last ball," Goswami said.

"I knew I could get breakthroughs. That was what I did. It's important to give your best in the field, take positives and that's what I want to do as a senior.

The 38-year old expressed her excitement to play in India's maiden pink-ball Test against Australia from September 30 - October 3 at Carrara.

"Lots of soreness in my body having played back-to-back games, need time to recover, but we're looking forward to be a part of the first-ever pink-ball Test. I have no experience of playing with pink ball and I would like to know what it does under lights before I quit the game," she added.

Goswami also hailed fellow pacers Meghna Singh and Pooja Vastrakar who claimed 3-46.

"Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we haven't played too many series but we have been spending a lot of time at the nets. Meghna bowled very well in all three games. Everyone has talent and it's all about delivering. I am also very happy for Puja as she is a very important member of this side."

India captain Mithali Raj hailed the team's batting performance after the heartbreaking loss in the second ODI.

"We are very happy. I was just telling the girls, Australia's winning streak started against India in India in 2018 so now we are the ones who broke that streak," she said.

"It's good to have some depth in the batting order. Deepti scroing runs and of course Yastika's partnership with Shafali was very important. And Sneh Rana's cameo was very important for the team.

"I think the last game gave us confidence going into today's encounter (in terms of putting a score on the board)," she added.
