Karachi: 30 January 2022: Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof is returning to the national side after giving birth to a baby girl and finding a balance between the joy of motherhood and her earlier first love, cricket.
Bismah, who has featured in over 200 internationals for Pakistan and was first to the 1000-run mark in the ODIs and 2000 in T201s, is ecstatic to be playing both roles with a supportive husband and their families.
Under a wonderful PCB Parental Support Policy, Bismah will be allowed to be with her dependent child and one support person of choice.
Needless to say, given half a chance, our women are capable of achieving what few would imagine is within the realm of possibility. Lest we forget, the 30-year-old will now have to tend to her baby and the 'babies' in the team as well. Seriously, how many can do that!
Rise and shine, Bismah
