The BCCI President said, ‘I am very happy for Jhulan. She is around 40 years old. He has had a wonderful career. Every player’s life comes to an end. That’s the game. But Jhulan will leave behind a rich legacy. She is a role model. She is ending her career at Lord’s and finishing at Lord’s is a dream.
