Bismah Maroof to replace Sana Mir as Pakistan women team’s captain

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sacked Pakistan women’s cricket team captain Sana Mir after an awful defeat in World Cup 2017.

Bismah Maroof, who is already serving as T20 captain becomes a new skipper of the team but she will be eligible for selection as a player in both formats of the game.

Moreover, PCB has also dissolved the selection committee of women team. Therefore, Shamsa Hashmi, Secretary Women’s Wing has been removed from the post and Ayesha Ashhar is being given an interim charge of women wing until such time an appointment of GM Women Cricket is made.

Chairman PCB Mr. Najam Sethi stated, “These are well thought out decisions taken after a comprehensive internal review. I am hopeful that we will transform women cricket into a well-knit unit both on the field and at the management level. Sana Mir has great contributions towards Pakistan’s Women cricket. She has played an instrumental role for women’s cricket in Pakistan. She has led the team with great respect and had always used her best abilities to serve women’s team.”
