Pakistani Women’s Cricket Team Take On The ‘Don’t Rush Challenge’
Our women in green have taken social media by a storm.
With the lockdown imposed across the world owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, commoners as well as celebrities are using social media platforms to get by these uncertain times.
Recently, the video-sharing app Tiktok's initiated ‘Don’t Rush Challenge’ was gaining momentum across the globe, as everyone posted video compilations of the challenge on their feeds.
While we loved seeing the transformation of women from different ages and cultures, its most recent participants have left us in awe. They are none other than our inspiring women’s cricket team.
Posted on the Instagram feed of all-rounder Kainat Imtiaz, the Don’t Rush Challenge shows us glimpses of lives of our favourite cricketers in quarantine.
The challenge included Omaima Sohail, fast bowler Maham Tariq, Kainat Hafeez, Syeda Nain Abidi with her little boy, wicket keeper Sidra Nawaz, Ayesha Zafar, Muneeba Ali, Aiman Anwar, Iram Javed and Sidra Ameen.
The video was captioned: “Here is our version of #DontRushChallenge. A lil fun harms no one. Last challenge before Ramzan.” And looks like the girls definitely had some fun.
We cannot help but notice that former captain Sana Mir was missing from the video. According to reports, the 34-year-old cricketer announced her retirement.
In a message posted on microblogging site Twitter on April 25th, Mir announced her retirement and thanked Pakistan for its love and support during her 15-year long career.
“Words fall short when I want to thank you all for the love, support & encouragement in the past 15 yrs. It has been an honor to serve Pak & don the green Jersey with absolute pride. It is time for me to move on. IA the service will continue in a different form. PakistanZindabad,” tweeted the former Pakistani skipper.
Just like everyone else, we are saddened by the news of her retirement but wish Mir a prosperous life ahead.
