The Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team right arm medium pacer Diana Bag is no longer available to compete in the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. This is a huge blow to the Women in Green as she has been an integral part of the team for the past few years been for years.

Pakistan is placed in a dangerous group consisting of England, Ireland, New Zealand, Rwanda and the West Indies. They will have to be perfect with their game plan because this time all the teams are quite competitive. The Women in Green does not have an impressive record in T20 WC.

Exciting T20 WC on cards

Pakistan has a slight lead over West Indies as last time in 2020 had upset West Indies against all odds. The Women in Green can be the party spoilers. Sadaf Shamas can be the ‘X’ factor for the team as recently she played great against Ireland where she scored 72 points.

The inclusion of Sadaf Shama’s may raise quite a few eyebrows as the board has named a batter instead of the fast bowler. It would be interesting to see if people like Rwanda beat big teams. We have seen many setbacks in the T20 WC.

Pakistan squad for Women’s T20 World Cup: Bismah Maroof (capt), Aiman ​​Anwar, Aliya Riaz, Ayesha Naseem, Sadaf Shamas, Fatima Sana, Javeria Khan, Muneeba Ali (wk), Nashra Sandhu, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Sadia Iqbal, Sidra Amin, Sidra Nawaz ( wk), Tuba Hassan
