And others extend their regards for her efforts beyond the field

Some hearts are full with good wishes

Like Fakhr-e-Alam said, the woman is a superstar!

People have been supremely appreciative

What will happen now? I do not see any ither woman cricketer in Pakistan even with one half of the talent ,Sana has. It is a national loss and for ever. Already we are getting continuous emberassements through zero performance of men cricketrs of Pakistan at international level. This indeed is a great national loss.

I read about Madam Sana Mir's retirement news in today's edition of our Bangalore daily. She is indeed a talented sportswoman and a remarkable achiever. Her score of 106 runs in R20 International speaks abundantly enough of her capability. She may be retiring from active cricket but her experience and talent should be utilised for grooming the youngsters.
