“I have decided to take a break from international cricket and, as such, will not be available for selection for next month’s series against England. I will utilize this time to plan and reset my future objectives and targets. My best wishes will remain with the Pakistan national women’s team in the series against England and I am sure they’ll produce their best cricket,” Mir said in an official statement.
