It is not the convicted terrorists such as Dr Aafia Siddiqi, it is not the the cultivators of Al Qaeda such as Dr Farhat Hashmi, it is not the flag-bearers of the ISI sponsored yellow journalism such as Dr Shirin Mazari, it is the ordinary Pakistani women, such as those in Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team, who make us proud.
In the recent past, it was Naseem Hameed, South Asia’s fastest woman who made us proud of being a Pakistani. Only yesterday, we celebrated the news of Asma Jahangir being awarded a UN prize for promoting human rights.
Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team created history Friday, 19 Nov 2010, in crushing Bangladesh by 10 wickets to win the first-ever Asian Games women’s cricket tournament here on Friday.
It was Pakistan’s first gold in Guangzhou.
Captain Sana Mir invited Bangladesh to bat first after winning the toss and her players dismissed them for 92 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
For Bangladesh, Salma Khatoon scored 27 and Romana made 17 while for Pakistan, Nida Rashid captured three and Sana Mir took two wickets.
Hats off to Pakistan’s female cricketers who today (Thu, 18 Nov 2010) beat Japan by nine wickets, qualifying for the finals in the Asian Games. Japan won the toss and decided to bat first. However, the team only managed 61 runs in 20 overs on the loss of seven wickets. Sana Gulzar of Pakistan took two wickets. Pakistan easily completed its target on the loss of one wicket.
