Bismah Maroof

On Thursday, Pakistan women’s cricketer Bismah Maroof announced her decision to retire from international cricket, marking the end of an illustrious career.

Expressing her sentiments, Maroof stated, “It’s time for me to bid farewell to the sport that I’ve cherished deeply. My cricketing journey has been nothing short of memorable.”

Grateful for the unwavering support throughout her career, Maroof extended her appreciation to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), her teammates, family, and fans, acknowledging their pivotal roles in her success.

Maroof leaves behind a remarkable legacy, having represented Pakistan in 136 Women’s One Day Internationals (WODIs), amassing 3369 runs at an average of 29.55.

Her contributions also shone in the Women’s Twenty20 Internationals (WT20Is), where she featured in 140 matches, accumulating 2893 runs with an average of 27.55.

As Maroof bids adieu to the cricketing arena, her impact and achievements will continue to inspire aspiring cricketers and fans alike, leaving an indelible mark on Pakistan’s cricketing landscape.

Meanwhile, the ICC World Cup trophy arrived in Pakistan ahead of the eagerly anticipated mega event, scheduled to be jointly hosted by the United States and the West Indies from June 1 onwards.

With great enthusiasm, officials from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) extended a warm welcome to both the prestigious trophy and the esteemed ICC delegation upon their arrival.

The trophy is poised to captivate cricket enthusiasts as it takes center stage for public display today at 5:00 p.m. in Shakarparian, allowing fans a firsthand glimpse of the coveted symbol of cricketing excellence.

Earlier this month, reports had already hinted at the imminent arrival of the ICC T20 World Cup trophy in Pakistan, with expectations set for its presence by the end of April.

In the backdrop of these preparations, the PCB, in collaboration with the International Cricket Council (ICC), diligently worked on finalizing the tour dates for the trophy, ensuring it aligns seamlessly with the nation’s cricketing calendar.

With keen anticipation building up, the PCB strategically aimed to synchronize the trophy tour with the upcoming home series against New Zealand, maximizing the outreach and excitement among fans across the country.
