PCB announces women squads for T20Is and ODIs to play West Indies


Karachi is all set to enjoy the thrill of cricket as West Indies and Pakistan women team will clash in the shortest format of the game in three Twenty20 matches.

The Pakistan Cricket Board announced the sides for the upcoming T20Is and ODIs against the West Indies. Karachi will host the three T20Is on January 31, February 1 and 3, while Dubai will be the venue for the three ODIs to be played on February 7, 9 and 11, according to a press release issued on PCB’s official website.

Bismah Maroof, the 28th-ranked batter, 59th-ranked bowler and 25th-ranked all-rounder, will lead the sides in both the formats of the game. The 27-year-old from Lahore has played 98 ODIs and 92 T20Is in which she has scored 2,329 runs and 1,724 runs, respectively. With her right-arm leg spinners, Bismah has claimed 41 ODI and 35 T20I wickets with her right-arm legspin.

In the ICC women’s T20I rankings, Bismah sits as the 18th-ranked batter, 69th-ranked bowler and 20th-ranked all-rounder.

“It’s always a privilege to be appointed captain of your country. But to be named captain in a home series against a tough side like the West Indies, that too when international cricket is making a steady return to Pakistan, is a huge honour,” said Bismah.

“We have a good side, a side that has matured and blossomed in the past few months. I am sure we will put up strong performances across both the formats.

“I want to thank the West Indies women’s cricket team for agreeing to visit Karachi. This visit will help them see and understand the passion for cricket in Pakistan. We have great friends in the West Indies women’s team, and this relationship and respect will only strengthen now,” Bismah added.

The women’s sides also include star cricketer Sana Mir. Sana is the number-one ranked ODI bowler in the world, while she is ranked 35th in T20Is.

Sana was also named in the ICC Women’s ODI Team of the Year 2018, while her delivery to Ireland’s Laura Delany in the ICC Women’s World T20 2018, was voted as the Play of the ICC Women’s World T20 2018.
