Dar Beats West Indian Cricketer Anisa Mohammad
Nida Dar of Pakistan has 126 wickets to her name, making her the woman with the most in women’s Twenty20 cricket, passing Anisa Mohammed of the West Indies as the player with the most.
On Tuesday, during the match between England and Pakistan in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, Dar managed to accomplish the feat.
It took the off-spinner 130 matches to surpass the record, despite the fact that his average with the ball is 18.18.
Before this, Nida Dar said that the Pakistani women team should compete in more games against best sides in order to raise their level of performance in international cricket.
In an interview with ESPNcricinfo from the previous month, Dar discussed these ideas while the team was competing against Australia.
Dar stated that in order to close the competitive gap with the top teams, additional matches are required. “We have always had the goal of playing cricket at a competitive level, and the only way for us to get better is to compete in more matches against the greatest teams.
“Most of times wanted to play Australia so that we could share the experience and learn from Australian cricketer but the fact of the matter is that as a team we require more matches and more exposure versus Australia. We accomplish a great deal of learning, which is exactly what we aimed to do.”
A further goal of hers is to see Pakistani players competing frequently in the best Twenty20 leagues found all over the world.
According to what she had to say, “absolutely it is very vital for the Pakistani Women cricketers to play in international competitions like Big Bash or Hundred in order to grow.” “We have talent, as evidenced by the fact that three of our players were named ICC players of the month [during the previous season], but we have to demonstrate that talent by competing successfully in international tournaments or series against the top teams.
Because this is such a critical moment for the girls, particularly in Pakistan, we need many more international matches and more international leagues so that they may mature at an earlier age and give us the opportunity to compete against the top teams in the world. It is the time for us to travel to other leagues in order to observe how other players compete in their respective games. If we play in higher-level leagues, we will be able to take our acquired knowledge back to Pakistan.
