Sana Mir’s shining career:
Pakistan off-spinner is also the third highest wicket-taker after pacers Jhulan Goswami of India (218 wickets) and Cathryn Fitzpatrick of Australia (180). Before this incredible feat, Sana Mir had also become the first Pakistani bowler to head the ICC rankings in October of 2018.
In a society where cricket is seen as a male-dominated field, Sana’s achievements are not only a reason for Pakistan to hold its head up but also an inspiration. Pakistan has been doing remarkably good in women cricket. With being worthy of appreciation due to the talent, additionally, the way they are advancing in the field with limited resources is encouraging.
Recently, the team’s ranking has also improved. After a tie in the 3rd ODI of the series against South, Africa, Pakistan has climbed to the 5th position in the ICC Women’s Championship.
Pakistanis have extended their congratulations to Sana, admiring her and wishing her best for future endeavours.
