Sana Mir becomes first Asian woman to play 100 T20Is


Former Pakistan captain Sana Mir became the first Asian woman player to play 100 T20 Internationals (T20Is).

Mir, who is playing for the national team since 2005, is the most senior member of the team. She achieved the feat when she took the field against West Indies during the third T20I in Karachi on Sunday.

The top-ranked ODI all-rounder expressed her happiness over the achievement. While talking to media, she said that every match for Pakistan is a wonderful opportunity and huge responsibility, adding that she is honoured to represent the country for so long and had given her best in every single match for the team.

She was part of the first T20I team of the national team when Pakistan faced Ireland in 2009. Since then she has only missed two matches due to the injury.

Mir is the only sixth woman from around the world to play 100 T20Is. West Indian Deandra Dottin leads the list with 109 T20Is.
