Pakistan Women’s team captain Bismah Maroof said: “I feel honoured and privileged to captain Pakistan in their 100th T20I. And to captain in a home series, is even more pleasing”. Bismah added: “I want to congratulate all the women cricketers who have been part of this journey and also thank the PCB for their support in helping us cherish our dreams of wearing the crest and star on our shirts.
Bismaha dded : “We are making a steady progress in international cricket. The more we will play against fancied and strong sides like the West Indies, the better we will get.
