Nida Dar becomes joint-highest wicket-taker in Women’s T20Is

Pakistan all-rounder Nida Dar equalled West Indies’ Anisa Mohammed’s record of 125 wickets to become the joint-leading wicket-taker in Women’s T20 internationals. 

Veteran Dar achieved the remarkable feat during Pakistan’s narrow defeat against West Indies in the Women’s T20 World Cup Group 2 match in Paarl on Sunday. She took two wickets for 13 runs in her four overs to level the record.

She can breach the mark and go past Anisa when Pakitan next face England in their final group encounter on Tuesday.

It may be noted here that Pakistan are virtually eliminated from the tournament following yesterday’s three-run defeat in a low-scoring thriller.

They only have an outside chance to qualify for the semi-finals if they beat England and Ireland shock India, too.
