Former Captain Pakistan’s women cricket team and off-spinner Sana Mir just created a new record and became the most successful spinner in the international women’s cricket. Sana, who played her 118th ODI match against South Africa, now holds the record for third highest wickets amongst the ICC Women bowlers.
After taking 147th wicket of her ODI career and sending opponent Sune Luus to the pavilion, in the third one-day match of the ICC Women’s Championship, Sana made the promising record.
"From street cricket to donning the Pakistan kit were moments of immense pride."
On Sunday, 🇵🇰's @mir_sana05 became the spinner with the most ODI wickets.
Her rise to the top has been inspirational. 🙌 https://t.co/BskMxW0J7V
