Sana Mir seeks backup plan for departmental cricket


The veteran women cricketer Sana Mair asked the authorities for developing a backup plan before dissolving departmental cricket from Pakistan’s domestic structure.

“Many players are employed under departments, means when you finish a department it affects the lives of many cricketers,” Sana said while talking to the media in Karachi.

Sana said that it is important for a player to earn well in order to look after diets and other expenses. “It will be difficult to manage expenses for a player if there is no job,” she said.

“You need to strengthen the regions before finishing departmental cricket,” Sana opined.

While answering to a question regarding their upcoming series against South Africa, the right-handed batswoman said that the girls in green need to remain focused against the protease.

“They [South Africa] have a strong side and it is not an easy task to beat them in their backyard,” said Sana who rated opponents’ bowling attack highly.

Sana, 33, called Pakistan as favorites to win the upcoming edition of the World Cup, slated to start from May 30 in England and Wales.

“For me, Pakistan is the best side as I belong to this country, Apart from green shirts, I think India, Australia, and England are strong sides,” she said.

It is pertinent to mention here that Sana is attending a fitness and training camp at National Stadium Karachi ahead of their ICC Women’s Championship fixture against South Africa. The women in green will be featured in three-match ODI series. They will also play five T20Is against the hosts.
