Nida Rashid Dar is a legend marked in the history of Pakistan cricket. She is not just an all-rounder; she’s the current captain of the Pakistan women’s national cricket team.

Her journey began in 2010, making her ODI debut against Ireland and her WT20I debut against Sri Lanka. The same year, she proudly represented Pakistan at the Asian Games. Nida’s talent shone brightly, and in 2018, she achieved a feat no Pakistani cricketer, male or female, had ever accomplished before that was, claiming a five-wicket haul in a WT20I match against Sri Lanka. This record-breaking performance solidified her position as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker.

Nida’s dedication continued to pay off. In 2020, she played in her 100th WT20I match, a proof of her solid commitment to the sport. But her defining moment arrived in June 2021, when she dismissed Deandra Dottin, marking her name in cricketing history as the first bowler, male or female, to take 100 T20I wickets for Pakistan.

Nida’s leadership qualities were recognized in 2022 when she was appointed vice-captain of the national team for the World Cup in New Zealand. Her journey was further enhanced in April 2023 when she was given the ultimate honor of the captaincy of the Pakistan women’s cricket team.
