Jhulan's jersey will share the 7000 square feet space with the likes of Pele, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer, Abhinav Bindra, Sachin Tendulkar, Vishwanathan Anand and PV Sindhu among others.

"The jersey I wore in the final is at the Lord's along with (captain) Mithali Raj's. I have heard the museum has an amazing collection, so hope this sporting memorabilia will inspire youngsters to take up sport."

India's first multi-sport museum's collection includes Bindra's signed gloves from 2008 Beijing Olympics, Pele's autographed jersey, Bolt's shoes and the British Empire-Indian passport of Col CK Nayudu, first Indian cricket captain, and his Bank of Allahabad passbook showing a balance of Rs 306.
