She has become the first Pakistani skipper to complete 1000 T20I runs. She set the record while playing against Barbados at the Commonwealth Games 2022.

However, Bismah could not perform well in the match as Barbados women handed a 15-run defeat to Pakistan women in their opening match of at the Edgbaston in Birmingham on Friday.

Chasing 145 to win, Pakistan lost four wickets with 49 runs on the board. Iram Javed (first-ball duck), Muneeba Ali (17, 19b, three fours), Omaima Sohail (10, 14b, two fours) and Bismah Maroof (12, 28b, one four) were all back in the hut in the 11th over but Nida Dar’s unbeaten half-century kept Pakistan in the run-chase.

Meanwhile, social media users are praising Bismah after she was spotted leading Pakistani contingent while carrying flag at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2022.
