Pakistan Women’s team captain Bismah Mahroof has opened up about their 2022 World Cup campaign, where she expressed her disappointment as the results were not in their favour.
The Girls in Green managed to claim one win out of seven games and finished last on the table. The win against West Indies was their first win in the competition since 2009.
“Of course, we are disappointed as we did not get the results according to our expectations. We lost two close games; if we had won those matches, we would be in a different position on the points table.” Bismah said in a video released by the PCB.
“It hurt us a lot, but we learned a lot. The difference between our team compared to the others is the mindset and approach towards the game. We need to work on how we approach the game. Bismah
The left-handed batter mentioned the positives of the tournament as there were few impressive performances by the Girls in Green.
“If we look at the positives from the tournament, we have a couple of good performances, Sidra Ameen scored a century, none of the Pakistani batters has ever scored a century before in the World Cup, Nida Dar performed brilliantly in a few matches and won us the match against West Indies”. Bismah added.
The skipper of the Pakistan Women’s team gave her views on the team’s overall performance during the world cup and highlighted the weaknesses that needs to be addressed.
“If we look at the overview of our world cup performance, there are a lot of things we need to change, and we will work on them once we return home,” Bismah stated.
“We finally were able to win a game in the World Cup after 13 years and broke our losing streak; we lost a couple of close games, which would have made our standings better on the points table.”
