Mumbai: Veteran Australian all-rounder Lisa Sthalekar, who retired from international cricket after her team won a sixth World Cup title in Mumbai, on Monday said there could not have been a better place to call it quits than India - the country where she was born.

"I made my debut in England where my mother was born and I am ending my career in India where I was born and my father was born. It's got a nice symmetry to it, isn't it," Sthalekar told PTI in Mumbai.

"I don't think I could have written it any better. To be part of a winning World Cup campaign, to take a couple of wickets and to take the catch at the end, was really special. That moment I will never forget," she added.
