Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami Indian player nominees in women's cricket
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has come up with its nominations for various player of the decade awards. While Indians prominently feature in the men’s category, Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami were the only Indian cricketers to have been nominated in the women’s category awards.
Mithali Raj was the only Indian to have been nominated in the ICC Women’s Player of the Decade, and she was joined by fast bowler Jhulan Goswami in the ICC Women’s ODI Player of the Decade category. The Indian women’s team finished as the runners-up in the 2017 50-over World Cup, as they put up some memorable performances before stumbling in the final.
