Ms Sana Mir is the Captain of the National Women's Cricket Team. She learnt cricket in the streets as a young girl. Since 2009, Ms Mir has led her team to two gold medals in the Asian Games (2010 and 2014), their first tournament win in a quadrangular series in Sri Lanka in 2011 and their highest world ranking.
