Good Sports: FORMER PAKISTAN CRICKET CAPTAIN RETIRES

She may not be a household name among cricket fans in the West, but Sana Mir had a big impact on women’s cricket in Pakistan.

Mir, 34, retired recently from a stellar career that saw her play 226 international matches, including 137 as captain. She was the first female bowler from Pakistan to take 100 ODI wickets, and the first from her country to top the ICC Women’s ODI Rankings, reaching number one in the bowlers’ list in October 2018.

“Sana has been the face of Pakistan cricket over the years and one of the most consistent performers around the world,” said Manu Sawhney, chief executive of the International Cricket Council. “She has been a wonderful leader of the Pakistan team and a great ambassador of the game in her country and abroad.”

An off-spinner who was also a valuable batter, Mir finished her career with 1,630 runs and 151 wickets in 120 ODIs, as well as 802 runs and 89 wickets in 106 T20Is.
