Pakistani Cricketer Sidra Amin has become the first woman cricketer to score a century in the World Cup 2022. She finished the century on 136 balls.
A proud moment for the Pakistani cricket team indeed! The women’s Cricket team of Pakistan is finally catching up with the world, with women in green competing in different series/world cups across the world.
Sidra Amin and Nahida Khan have put up the highest opening partnership in ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup history for #TeamPakistan by surpassing the previous best of 84 between Maliha Hussain and Sharmeen Khan, scored in the 1997 edition, tweeted the real PCB on Twitter.

Here’s How Twitter Reacted to the News:
While many congratulated the team for Sidra’s latest milestone, they critically criticized the Pakistani women’s team to pick up the pace and perform better in the World Cup.

Sports journalist, Zainab Abbas also tweet in this regard. While she was pleased with Sidra Ameen’s century, she addressed the issue at hand, “unable to close games”.
Another loss for the girls in green,Sidra Ameen after scoring a 100 should have taken Pak over the line with 25 required of 18 balls. Yet again the same issue of being unable to close games. #CWC2022
