She shared her message through Twitter and it has been trending in the social media for some time now. However, she asked the board to provide better sporting facilities as there is a lot of talent in her country to represent at the international level.
In a TV show ‘Voice of cricket’, Sana revealed her admiration towards former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. She had no hesitation in admitting that she would like to be Dhoni or Imran Khan if given a chance for a day. Dhoni has been looked upon as an inspiring personality to many youngsters across the world and Mir is no exception.
Mir who led her side for a longer period of time in the past was sacked as the skipper due to the side’s inconsistent performances.
Her experience will matter a lot in the T20 world cup scheduled next month. Mir now has 212 wickets to her name in all the formats combined.
