In the ongoing Women's T20 World Cup in South Africa, Muneeba Ali made history on February 15, 2023, when she became the first female to ever score a century in a T20Is for Pakistan.
The Women in Green were a sight to behold as they thrashed Ireland by 70 runs to earn two critical points, ascend to the third spot of Group B, and also significantly enhance their net run rate. Pakistan and Ireland squared off in the tenth match of the marquee event.
Muneeba set a record by scoring the fifth-highest individual score in history with her outstanding performance in the match versus Ireland.
After being given the opportunity to bat first by Ireland, Pakistan's opening batsman's stunning century propeled them to a winning score of 165/5 in their allotted 20 overs. The Pakistani bowlers also did an outstanding job, as Nashra Sandhu's four-wicket haul contributed to Pakistan's early victory over Ireland, who were dismissed for only 95 runs in 16.3 overs.
