Sidra Ameen smashes second ODI century, equals Javeriya Khan record

Pakistan Women’s cricket team’s batter Sidra Ameen has equalled Javeriya Khan’s record, smashing her second century in the One-Day Internationals. She achieved the feat during the Pak W vs SL W second ODI, that took place on June 3 at Southend Club Cricket Stadium, Karachi.

She scored her first ODI century during ICC Women’s ODI World Cup at Seddon Park in New Zealand while chasing a target of 235 against Bangladesh. However, her efforts went in vain as the women in green lost the match falling short of 9 runs. Then, she became the first Pakistani women’s cricketer to score a hundred in a World Cup match.

Talking about Pak W vs SL W second ODI, the Pakistani batters scored 253 runs on the loss of just two wickets. The decent looking score contributes the efforts of Sidra and Muneeba Ali’s opening partnership stand of 158 runs. Notably, it is now the highest opening partnership stand for the Pakistani Women’s cricketers.

Sidra was the top-scorer from the women in green‘s side adding 123 off 150 balls whereas, Muneeba took 100 balls for 56 runs. The skipper Bismah Maroof contributed with 36 runs coming from 43 deliveries and stayed not out whereas, all-rounder Nida Dar put up 10 runs from seven balls assisting the team to gather a target of 254 runs for Sri Lanka Women.

In reply, the guests departed sparing one wicket on 180 runs and fell short of balls. It must be noted Pakistan Women won the first ODI by eight wickets and 49 balls remaining. They earlier won the three-match T20I series by 3-0 and now lead the ODI series by 2-0 with the final game to spare, the last chance for Sri Lanka to avoid the whitewash.
