Sharma took to Instagram again for sharing the behind-the-scene picture. She posted two images, one with her holding the cricket ball and the other with her right arm raised as she might try to throw a fast pace ball like Goswami.

The post got more than one lakh 22 thousand likes and more than 3,500 comments. In those many comments of appreciation, there was one by the legend herself. Goswami wrote, “Very nice (thumbs up emoji and two other emojis).”

Recently, in a viral post, Sharma was seen warming up in the field, wearing sports trousers, a t-shirt and a cap. Hair tied in a bun, she was surrounded by a group of people along with a cameraperson.

All this prep by Sharma is for her comeback with this film which will release on the OTT platform, Netflix.

Goswami is the former captain of Indian cricket’s women’s team and a versatile player with top-notch performance. She started playing for Bengal at the age of 19. Not only did she break the stereotype that women cannot make a career in cricket, but she was also the first sportsperson in her family. In 2006, she at one point became the fastest woman bowler in the world with a delivering speed of 120 kilometers per hour.
