Veteran India seamer Jhulan Goswami has retired from Twenty20 internationals, only three months before the ICC Women's World T20 in the West Indies.

The 35-year-old right-armer is India's top wicket-taker in Twenty20 cricket, with 56 from 68 matches.

She has twice been a losing finalist in 50-over World Cups.

Goswami is the only player in the world to take more than 200 wickets in women's one-day internationals, and will continue to play in that format.

She has been a mainstay of India's attack since making her debut in 2002, and captained the side in 43 of her 247 international appearances.

A statementexternal-link from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) read: "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."
