Prayers and the last rites were conducted later in the day, on May 18. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Najam Sethi, expressed his condolences, assuring Nida of the board’s support during this difficult time. Nida’s teammate, Javeria Khan, also shared her condolences urging prayers for the departed soul and strength for Nida and her family.

Nida Dar has been recognized for her outstanding performances in women’s cricket. In 2021, she was awarded the prestigious PCB Women’s Cricketer of the Year and only recently succeeded Bismah Maroof as the captain of the team following the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 held in South Africa. With an impressive record of representing Pakistan in 130 T20Is and 99 ODIs, the 36-year-old all-rounder is one of the most experienced players in the country.

Nida Dar’s talent shines through her impressive bowling skills, as she holds the record for being the leading wicket-taker in T20I women’s cricket. With an astounding 126 wickets to her name, she has consistently proven to be a formidable force on the field. Her contributions have played a significant role in Pakistan’s success in various tournaments.

Nida Dar has left her mark on the international stage with remarkable achievements. She was a vital member of the Pakistan women’s cricket teams that clinched the Gold medal at the Asian Games held in Guangzhou, China, in 2010, and Incheon, South Korea, in 2014.

Nida’s outstanding performances have not only brought glory to her country but have also earned her recognition abroad. In 2019, Nida became the first Pakistani women’s cricketer to participate in Australia’s women’s franchise cricket, showcasing her talent on a global platform.

Beyond her cricketing prowess, Nida Dar is now faced with the heartbreaking loss of her beloved Mother, following the loss of her father last year. The support and condolences pouring in from her teammates and the PCB reflect the unity and empathy within the cricket fraternity during these difficult times.

As the cricketing world mourns the loss of Nida Dar’s mother, the Pakistan women’s cricket team stands united to support their captain through this challenging period. Nida’s extraordinary achievements on the cricket field have brought pride to her nation, and her personal loss reminds us all of the shared humanity within the sport.

May Nida and her family find the strength to navigate this painful time, and may her mother’s soul rest in eternal peace.

Sports have always been a huge part of my life, and having played cricket professionally for my state team, I gained a deeper understanding of what it takes to succeed in the world of sports. With an eye for detail and passion for sports, I’m hoping to make a lasting impact in the sports industry.
