Rumeli Dhar to replace injured Jhulan Goswami for T20Is against SA

By Unnikrishnan
Jhulan Goswami

Bengaluru, February 17: The All-India Women's Selection Committee has named Rumeli Dhar as the replacement for injured Jhulan Goswami.

Dhar will join the Indian women's team for the remaining three T20Is against South Africa women in place of Jhulan Goswami.

Goswami ruled out

Goswami had suffered an injury to her heel ahead of the first T20I.

On Friday, India women registered a nine-wicket win in the second match and now lead the T20I series 2-0.

The BCCI medical team in consultation with a local doctor felt that she needs rest for a couple of weeks to avoid any further impact on the bone.

Upon her return, Goswami will consult a foot expert and will undergo her rehab process at the NCA in Bengaluru.

Goswami had recently completed 200 wickets, the first woman to do so, in the ODIs and played a good role in India's 2-1 series win over South Africa.

India Women's T20I squad: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Smriti Mandhana (vice-captain), Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Taniya Bhatia (wicket-keeper), Nuzhat Parveen (wicket-keeper), Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Rumeli Dhar.
