Sana Mir Named Ambassador of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the appointment of Pakistan cricket legend Sana Mir as the ambassador for the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier. Mir, who represented Pakistan in 226 international games, with 137 of them as captain, will bring her invaluable experience to the event.

The Qualifier Tournament

The Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier will witness 10 teams battling it out for two coveted spots at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024 in Bangladesh. The teams have been divided into two groups of five, with the top two from each group progressing to the semi-finals. The winners of the semi-finals will secure their place in the T20 World Cup later this year.

Sana Mir’s Delight

Sana Mir expressed her delight at being named the ambassador, stating, “Other than the big qualification opportunity for two teams, the tournament will provide excellent exposure to the Associate Member teams and their players.”

She further added, “The women’s game has become more and more competitive in recent years, and the 10 nations involved in the Qualifier possess a number of quality players.”

Sharing Expertise and Experience

As a veteran of Pakistan cricket, Sana Mir has featured in numerous ICC tournaments, including the qualifying events. Her finest moment came in the 2008 ICC Women’s Qualifying Series for the Women’s Cricket World Cup, where Pakistan reached the finals, and Sana won the joint Player of the Series award.

Sana aims to share her expertise and experience with the players during the Qualifier, guiding them on how to deal with the pressure of such events and what it takes to succeed.
