Goswami, who took 10 wickets in nine matches including a 3/23 in the final of the World Cup against hosts England, which India narrowly lost by nine runs, was awarded a cash prize of Rs 10 lakh and a plaque by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
"I think I was preparing in such a way... earlier stages of the World Cup, I was not bowling well and I was very disappointed," Goswami said after receiving the award.
The 34-year-old Bengal pacer, who has earlier also skippered India, revealed that she felt she could not get her rhythm right after she returned wicketless in India's second pool game against the West Indies and their first encounter with England.
