Nida Dar has established herself as one of Pakistan’s most reliable allrounders in the past decade, boasting an impressive international record of over 2000 runs and 150 wickets. She made her T20I debut in May 2010 against Sri Lanka, followed by her ODI debut later the same year. In her T20I debut, Dar made an immediate impact, claiming two wickets in a closely contested match that Pakistan narrowly lost by just one run.
During the 2018 Women’s Asia Cup T20 competition, the off-spinner achieved a remarkable milestone by registering figures of 5-21 in a game against Sri Lanka. This historic feat made her the first Pakistan woman to take a five-wicket haul in T20I cricket. Dar’s prowess has been particularly evident in T20 World Cups, with a standout performance against India during the 2018 edition. In that match, she showcased her all-round abilities, scoring a quick 52 off just 35 balls and following it up with impressive bowling figures of 1-17 in her allotted four overs.
