The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has retained Bismah Maroof as the captain of Pakistan’s Women Cricket Team for the tenure 2022-23. The lady will return to the homeland to join the team for the international tour after playing a private league in Dubai. Pak-W will fly to Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series and as many ODIs from May 24th to June 5th.
In April 2021, she took maternity break from all forms of cricket and was blessed with a baby girl in August in the same year. By the end of the year, she resumed her cricketing activities, and is now regular part of the team. She also commanded the girls in green in the recent Women’s World Cup 2022. Unfotunately, Pakistan did not have a great journey in the event and became the first game to be expelled out.

As far as home series is concerned, Ireland women will make their first-ever visit to the cricket-loving country in October 2022 for three ODIs and as many T20Is.
Notably, she was named captain of the national team as a successor of Sana Mir. Since her debut, the mother of one has participated in 115 ODIs and 108 T20Is. She has over 5000 runs to her name which makes her the only Pakistani woman cricketer to do so.
Some well deserved news for the Pakistan veteran.
