Bismah made her come back to international cricket after a maternity break as she gave birth to her daughter Fatima in August 2021. Coming into the World Cup, the PCB provided her a ‘support person’ to assist her during the World Cup campaign as part of their Parental policy in order to help the player manage their child and be focused on their game at the same time.

Bismah who’s been a part of the Pakistan unit since 2006 has scored 2617 runs in 106 innings at an average of 27.84. She has scored 14 fifties with 99 against South Africa in 2015 being her best individual score. She is the first Pakistani woman to score 1000 ODI runs.

Bismah was made the captain of Pakistan in 2017 after Sana Mir’s retirement. She has led the side in 19 matches winning 10 of them. She went into her maternity leave in April 2021 and gave birth to her daughter Fatima in August 2021. She announced her comeback in December 2021 and was given back her captaincy under PCB parental policy with 12 months’ pay and a guaranteed contract extension.

As ICC uploaded a tweet showing Bismah and her daughter entering the stadium, fans were happy for the mother and daughter and applauded PCB for providing their support.

After the match between India and Pakistan, the Indian visited the young Fatima, and pictures of their interactions made rounds on social media overall ending a great day of cricket on a happy note.
