At the T20 World Cup, Pakistan celebrates Muneeba’s century.

Muneeba Ali did a great job against Ireland, scoring the first century (102 runs) of the Women’s T20 World Cup on Wednesday at Newlands, Cape Town. Pakistani cricket fans are raving about the young player after she did this.

In 44 T20 internationals, Muneeba had never scored a fifty, but she had scored a hundred in a one-day international against the same opponents in Lahore last November.

But her recent performance, which Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof called “clinical,” has given cricket fans in the country even more reason to be happy. This has taken the cricket fever caused by the Pakistan Super League (PSL) to a whole new level.

Even though cricket was not thought of as a “woman’s sport” for many years, it is heartening to see how much the country loves its women’s cricket team.

When the country’s first-ever women’s cricket game was played, the team had to deal with challenges and even threats from all sides.

As these athletes pushed forward and overcame every obstacle — and there were a lot of them — the country first warmed up to the heat of women’s love for a popular sport and has now come to own and support them.

Since yesterday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has posted several congratulatory messages on its Twitter account. This shows that it is fully behind the country’s women’s national team.

It has also made a big deal about Muneeba’s win and been at the front of the celebrations for her success.

People in the country who like cricket are just as happy. Muneeba’s performance has been called “sensational,” “rocking,” and “terrific.”

One user wrote “History in Cape Town!” on the microblogging site to celebrate her win. Muneeba Ali is the first player from Pakistan to score a hundred in a T20I and only the sixth woman in the world to do so in a T20 World Cup. Pakistan now has 165 runs, which is their highest score in the history of the tournament.

Even UN Women Pakistan took to Twitter to praise Muneeba’s success, writing, “Women in sports defy gender stereotypes and social norms and are inspiring role models. In the T20 World Cup, Muneeba Ali is only the sixth woman to score a century. Muneeba, I hope you do well. “Stay bright!”
