Indian pacer Jhulan Goswami, who holds the all-time record for wickets in women's ODI, has retired from Twenty20 Internationals with immediate effect, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Thursday, August 23.

Goswami has played 68 T20Is, over the course of which she picked up 56 wickets. Her retirement comes ahead of the ICC Women's World T20 2018 in the Caribbean in November.

The BCCI release stated that "Goswami thanked the BCCI and her team-mates for all the love and support she garnered during her stint with the T20I team and wished them luck going forward."

Nonetheless, Goswami will continue playing the other two formats of the game for India.
