Pakistan batter Bismah Maroof, on Tuesday, confirmed that she will be returning to the game in 2022 and is available for the upcoming World Cup.
The 30-year-Old became a mother recently and was on leave, thanks to PCB’S Parental Support Policy. Now, the batter will be back and will participate in the Warm-ups ahead of the World Cup 2022 Pakistan camp.
The cricketer, who was on leave since 2020 December, is among 36 probables for Pakistan camp. She has already resumed her fitness training and post-childbirth rehab at the National High Performance Centre.
Talking about her return, Maroof said: The past few months have been the best of my life,” Maroof said. “Becoming a mother and spending time with my daughter has given me immense pleasure, but it is now time to return to my passion of representing Pakistan at an international stage.
The maternity leave helped me realise the significance of navigating the balance of raising a child and maintaining my professional cricketing career as I missed being on the field each time I saw the girls in action. I can now resume my ambitions and aspirations of playing for Pakistan and hope to make a useful contribution in our target of doing well in New Zealand.
