India won yesterday’s ICC World Cup match against Pakistan but the Pakistani team skipper Bismah Maroof has managed to win hearts all over Pakistan and across the border. Bismah arrived at the stadium with her 6 months old baby in her arms, and everyone cannot stop lauding her for juggling motherhood and her career and totally winning at both!
Photos of her with her baby and the Indian cricket team gushing over Bismah’s baby daughter are making rounds on social media but before we move on to what people are saying, here’s a little bit about Bismah Maroof and her journey.
Bismah Maroof took over the T20 team captaincy from Sana Mir in 2016. She joined Pakistan cricket when she was just 15 years old and has been unstoppable since then. She became the first woman to make 1000 runs for Pakistan in ODI cricket and has played over 200 matches for Pakistan!
Her baby, Fatima’s public appearance has bowled over anyone and everyone and people on Twitter cannot stop obsessing over her. Scroll down to see what Twitterati is saying.
