Nida Dar

Pakistan women’s cricket team captain Nida Dar has etched her name in the annals of cricket history by becoming the leading wicket-taker in Women’s T20 International cricket.

This remarkable feat was achieved during the second match against England in Northampton, where Dar claimed her 137th wicket.

Dar’s record-breaking performance saw her surpassing the previous record holder, Australia’s Megan Schutt, who had 136 wickets to her name.

The Pakistani skipper achieved this milestone in her 141st T20I innings, underlining her prowess as the premier wicket-taking bowler in women’s T20 international cricket.

Beside Dar, another Pakistani player features prominently in the list of the 20 all-time top wicket-takers. Former Pakistan captain Sana Mir occupies the 19th position on the list with 89 wickets taken in 105 innings.

Nida Dar’s ascent to the top of the wicket-taking charts is a testament to her skill, determination, and consistency on the cricket field.

Her ability to consistently trouble batters and pick up crucial wickets has been a cornerstone of Pakistan’s bowling attack in the T20 format.

Dar’s achievement also reflects the growing prowess of women’s cricket in Pakistan and serves as an inspiration for aspiring cricketers across the country.

Her dedication to the sport and relentless pursuit of excellence have propelled her to the pinnacle of success in the international arena.

In surpassing established names like Megan Schutt, Ellyse Perry, Anisa Mohammed, and Shabnim Ismail, Nida Dar has not only made her mark on the global stage but has also solidified her legacy as one of the greatest bowlers in women’s T20 cricket.

As Pakistan’s captain, Dar continues to lead by example, setting new standards of excellence and inspiring her teammates to strive for greatness.

Her record-breaking achievement is a proud moment for Pakistan cricket and a testament to the talent and potential within the women’s game.
