Former Pakistan team skipper Sana Mir announced on Friday that she has tested negative for the coronavirus. The 34-year old informed about her recovery on her Twitter handle.
“Thank you for all your prayers and love. I have tested negative, spent some time with family and now back to work,” Sana Mir tweeted.
Sana had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month while commentating during the final match of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in Karachi.
Following her positive report, she was taken off the commentary panel and instructed to undergo self-isolation. Members of the commentary team found in close contact with Mir were also tested for COVID-19.
Sana Mir is one of the most successful spinners in women cricket. She has played 120 ODIs and 106 T20Is, clinching 151 wickets at an average of 24.27 in ODIs and 89 wickets in T20Is. She has captained the team in 137 matches between 2009 and 2017.
She was also the captain of the Pakistan’s gold-medal winning team at the Asia Games in 2010 and 2014.
The former skipper announced her retirement from her 15-year-long successful on April 25 last year. After hanging her boots from the game, she took up commentary and became an expert advisor for Pakistan’s domestic matches and the Pakistan Super League.
