KARACHI: Pakistan women’s cricketer Nida Dar on Sunday etched her name in the annals of cricket history by becoming the second bowler from her country to secure 100 wickets in One Day Internationals (ODIs). The momentous occasion unfolded during Pakistan’s match against the West Indies Women in the second ODI played in Karachi.

Nida Dar’s journey to this significant milestone spanned 108 matches, a testament to her unwavering commitment and talent on the cricket field. With this achievement, she follows in the footsteps of former captain Sana Mir, who was the first Pakistani woman cricketer to reach the 100-wicket mark in ODIs.

The pivotal moment arrived when Nida dismissed West Indies batter Rashada Williams, restricting her to a mere 7 runs off 24 balls. The elation of reaching this milestone was palpable as Nida joined an elite group of cricketers.

However, Nida Dar’s contributions to the team extend beyond her bowling prowess. With a batting record that boasts 1640 runs at an average of 19.06, she has proven to be a valuable all-rounder for Pakistan. Nida has also demonstrated her ability to excel with the bat, notching up 11 half-centuries, with a highest score of 87 runs.
