Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team Clinches T20I Series Against New Zealand

In a momentous achievement, the Pakistan women’s cricket team secured a historic 10-run victory over New Zealand in the second T20I of their series in Dunedin, breaking a five-year drought. This triumph marked a significant milestone as it was the first time Pakistan women have won a T20I series against the White Ferns in their history and their first T20I series victory away from home since October 2018.

Key Highlights:

  • Historic Victory: Pakistan women’s cricket team won a T20I series against New Zealand for the first time.
  • Breaking the Drought: This marks the end of a five-year drought for Pakistan women’s cricket.
  • Away Series Victory: Pakistan’s first T20I series victory away from home since October 2018.
  • Match Details: The much-improved Pakistan side posted a competitive total of 137/6 in 20 overs, with notable performances from Muneeba Ali, Aliya Riaz, and Bismah Maroof.
  • Bowling Brilliance: Left-arm spinner Sadia Iqbal played a crucial role by dismissing key New Zealand batters early in their chase.
  • Series-Clinching Victory: Fatima Sana’s outstanding figures of 3/22 and disciplined bowling efforts secured the series-clinching victory.
  • Top Scorer: Hannah Rowe top-scored for New Zealand with 33, but it wasn’t enough to secure a victory.
  • Next Match: The third and final match of the series is scheduled to take place in Queenstown, providing an opportunity for Pakistan to further solidify their historic achievement.

The positive turn of events for the Pakistan women’s cricket team aligns with recent advancements by the Pakistan Cricket Board, which has awarded 11-month domestic contracts to 74 young women cricketers. Among these players, 59 belong to emerging and U19 categories, while 14 have already represented Pakistan at the senior level. This initiative aims to bolster women’s cricket and has injected confidence into the players, setting the stage for an action-packed women’s cricket season set to resume on September 1.

The comprehensive performance by Pakistan has sparked celebration and pride within the team and among their supporters, marking a significant moment in the history of Pakistan women’s cricket.
