Sana Mir will don the hat of a commentator at the upcoming ICC Women’s World Cup from March 4 in New Zealand. She will be Pakistan’s sole representative in the commentary box at the mega event.
The former Pakistan Women’s team captain has had a sprawling fourteen-year-long career in the sport. She has a number of records to her name. She has been a formidable figure in Pakistan’s cricketing circuit. Sana Mir signed off from her commentary duties in HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 7. In a Tweet, the 36-year-old former captain thanked her team at PSL7 for a special and wonderful experience.
Signing off from #PSL7 as the ICC Womens’ World Cup is calling. Alhamdolillah 🙏🤗
Thank you to all the team at @thePSLt20 for making it so special. It has been a wonderful experience.
