Here Is The wonderful story of Kainat Imtiaz on meeting her idol

India vs Pakistan is not just a game of Cricket. It is much more than that. It is more a battle for fans of the two countries.

They leave no opportunity to troll each on social media. Amidst of these immense tensions between the two sides, it”s the players who don”t get involved in such fights and respect the beautiful game of cricket.

After the defeat in Champions Trophy Final at the Oval, the onus was on Indian women to settle the scores. Indian women locked horns against Pakistan women at County Ground Derby on 2nd July 2017. After a lethargic effort with the bat, 169 was never going to be the abundant score. However, Ekta Bisht turned the ball and things around as India managed to crush Pakistan by 95 runs.

The spearhead of Indian pace attack Jhulan Goswami has been around for long and is a veteran in ODI format. She holds the record for most wickets by a bowler in Women”s ODI cricket and is a role model for many, including young Pakistani pacer Kainat Imtiaz.

It was 2005. Indian team was playing in Pakistan. It was the Asia Cup. The then 13-year-old Imtiaz was at the boundary as a ball picker. Then something happened that changed her life. She saw Jhulan Goswami running in charging fast and furious. It captivated Imtiaz and that day she knew what she wanted to do in life.

Meeting your childhood hero is always special and Imitiaz met Goswami after the match in Derby and clicked a selfie with her. True Legends not only serve the country for years but make such an impact that will make future generations look up to them.
