Allrounder Nida Dar experienced Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) to prepare for the T20 World Cup tournament.
Nida Dar is now the first Pakistani player to take part in the competition as part of the Sydney Thunder side in the 2020’s tournament. She had 11 matches, claimed 13 wickets at 16.92 and an economy rate of 6.87.
Nida Dar said, “As a senior player I need to share everything I have,”. “All my team-mates are always asking me about the BBL experience and Australian conditions. I have given a lot of tips and things to try. The girls are very keen to learn everything because some of them are very new and it’s their first experience in Australia. What we need to do is gel as a unit.”
Nida Dar spent the WBBL to polish herself and be prepare for the mega event.
She said, “The main thing I focused on was what could I grab from here, the experience from different coaches and ideas from different people,” she said. “I had experienced players with me, Rachael Haynes, Shabnim Ismail, Rachel Priest so there were different ideas from different players and the experience I took from the BBL was very nice. But now after so much rain the conditions have changed.”
