Kolkata, July 29 (IANS) She may be an ace pacer but Jhulan Goswami is in no rush to engage in a romantic partnership at the moment. Indian star Goswami believes in doing just one thing at a time.

“I am focusing on the game. I am so busy with it that I will not be able to devote time to anything else. If I can’t devote time to a relationship then I won’t be able to do justice to it. I would prefer to do one thing at a time,” Goswami told a television channel here on Saturday.

“I have seen my friends…. how they have had to struggle to balance two things at one time. There’s a lot of time for that (relationship),” she remarked days after India women’s cricket team agonisingly lost to hosts England in the World Cup final at Lord’s.

Does the pacer unwind at all?

“I like movies and music. In fact, before the semi-final and final match (of the World Cup) I saw a couple of classic Bengali movies to divert my mind,” the 34-year-old said.

India rode on Goswami’s 3/23 to restrict England to 228/7 but after Punam Raut (86), semi-final’s star Harmanpreet Kaur (51) and Veda Krishnamurthy (35) helped India come within touching distance of the target, the Mithali Raj-led side lost wickets in a hurry and inexplicably lost by nine runs.

Goswami vouched for increasing accessibility to infrastructure for women cricketers.

“Cricket Association of Bengal has done a good thing by starting district cricket but I feel it is as important to look into club cricket scenario in Kolkata. They have good infrastructure and it should be made accessible to women,” she said.
