Pakistan women’s cricket team captain Sana Mir, who is under fire following the team’s poor show in the 2007 ICC Women’s World Cup, has categorically stated that he she doesn’t want to continue under the current circumstances.
As per a report in ANI, Pakistan coach Sabih Azhar, in a report, had described Mir as “self-centered, egotistical and being wrapped up in oneself”.
On coming to know of the same, Mir took to Facebook and wrote, “My coordination with the coach suffered when I insisted on playing Diana Baig, who was in absolutely great form. That was our major disagreement. Diana is talented and was in great form in the WWC 2017.”
“My fight was to play a youngster in the team who is ready for international cricket. I don’t regret it. Moreover, we suffered defeats in this World Cup as spinners with the new ball penetrated our top order consistently in each game, especially left-arm spinners. We are also still short of players who can perform under pressure,” ESPNcricinfo quoted her as saying.
“I want to make it clear I don’t intend to continue in the future with the current set-up of the Women’s Wing in any capacity. I would still be sharing a detailed report with all of you to improve women’s cricket once I get back by the end of August,” she was further quoted as saying in the ANI report.
Mir has captained Pakistan to 26 wins each in 76 ODIs and 65 T20Is.
