Pakistani Cricket Star Nida Dar Makes History!

Pakistan’s Nida Dar is now the world’s best bowler in women’s T20 international cricket! She achieved this by taking her 137th wicket during a match against England. This achievement comes shortly after Dar crossed another milestone, becoming the second Pakistani bowler to claim 100 wickets in One Day Internationals last month.

Pakistan Women’s captain Nida Dar made history on Friday by becoming the highest wicket-taker in women’s T20 cricket. This milestone was achieved during the second T20 match against England at County Ground in Northampton.

Despite Pakistan losing the three-match series after England’s 65-run victory, Nida Dar’s achievement shone brightly. England’s all-rounder Alice Capsey was named player of the match for her impressive performance, scoring 31 runs and taking two wickets.

Nida Dar, who last month became the second Pakistani bowler to claim 100 ODI wickets, surpassed Australian Megan Schutt’s record by taking two wickets for 33 runs in her four overs during the match against England.

Although she didn’t take any wickets in the first match, Nida’s determination paid off in the second. She reached this remarkable milestone by dismissing Amy Jones in the last over of England’s innings.

Match Summary

England won the toss and chose to bat, scoring 144 runs in their 20 overs. Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey, and Nat Sciver-Brunt contributed significantly, with Sciver-Brunt hitting six fours in her quick 21-ball innings. Daniel Gibson added a rapid 18 runs towards the end, ensuring England crossed the 140-run mark.

Pakistan’s chase started poorly, losing their first wicket for just eight runs. Despite efforts from Sidra Ameen, Aliya Riaz, and Muneeba Ali, who were the only players to score in double figures, the team couldn’t keep up. England’s Sophie Ecclestone was the standout bowler, taking three wickets in three overs.

The two teams will play a three-match ODI series after that from 23 to 29 May. 

Nida Dar’s record-breaking performance remains a highlight, inspiring many and marking a proud moment for Pakistan in women’s cricket.
