Even though Dar was thrilled with her achievement, she was not feeling great about Pakistan losing to West Indies, “I’m feeling great about the achievement, but unfortunately, the match did not finish in the same condition as we wanted it to finish. ”

A few weeks ago, news of Nida Dar being targeted for her looks in an interview made headlines. Cricketer Abdul Razzaq passed on rude comments during an interview. He said Dae is “too hardened to look like a girl”. His comments heavily suggested that the cricketer looks more like a man than a woman.
Razzaq’s comments during the interview were shocking and caused quite a stir on social media, however, unfortunately, these are the kind of comments women athletes hear often.
