Sana Mir Takes Break from International Cricket

The former captain of the Pakistan International Women’s Cricket Team quit her role after a horrible performance during the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017.

The former captain of Pakistan’s Women’s International Cricket Team, Sana Mir, said in a recent interview that she will step away from the international cricket scene. She also said that she will not participate in the upcoming series against England. The team is going to play against England’s women’s team in three ODIs and T20Is in Kuala Lumpur starting December 9 until 20.

Sana Mir will complete 15 years of playing international cricket for the team next month. She said she will think about her future plans during the break. She has played 120 ODIs and 106 T20Is wherein she took 240 wickets. She also scored three half-centuries in ODIs, her highest being 52 runs.

‘I have decided to take a break from international cricket and, as such, will not be available for selection for next month’s series against England. I will utilise this time to plan and reset my future objectives and targets. My best wishes will remain with the Pakistan national women’s team in the series against England and I am sure they’ll produce their best cricket’, said Mir in an interview.

Pakistan has been keen on rebuilding their team to match other teams' performance. To find out more about Pakistan's Cricket Team and other teams, visit Betwala's page.
