There was a time when cricket was considered a sport for men only. When in the last 90s two sisters Shazia and Sharmeen Khan put forth the idea that there should be a women’s cricket team in Pakistan, they were threatened by many groups. It was considered a strange idea in a country which is considered conservative but it wasn’t very long after this that the Pakistan Cricket Board decided that women should also participate in cricket and that is when the Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team was established which represents Pakistan on international level.
The Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team has been playing since 1997 but their recent accomplishments in International cricket have brought them more fame than ever before. The present team consists of 24 members. Sana Mir is the captain of the team.
Here are some pictures of these talented women.
