Former Pakistan captain Sana Mir, 5th on the all-time list of wicket-takers in women’s ODIs, has announced retirement from cricket.
Sana Mir, in her 15- year playing career, appeared in 120 ODIs and led Pakistan in 72 ODIs and took 151 wickets in the format, the most by anyone from her country, while the off-spinner picked 89 wickets in 106 T20Is she played.
“I want to extend my gratitude to the PCB for giving me an opportunity to serve my country for 15 years. It has been an absolute honor and privilege,” the 34-year-old stated.

“The last few months have provided me with an opportunity to contemplate. I feel it is the right time for me to move on. I believe I have contributed to the best of my ability for my country and the sport.”
She announced at the back end of last year that she was taking an indefinite break from cricket, missing out on the recent T20 World Cup in Australia as a result, and has now decided to retire.
