Mir did let out a little secret that Virat Kohli is the most popular cricketer in their women's team although her personal favourite is Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

"There are couple of names. If I just talk about my players, I think Virat Kohli is the favourite cricketer. Personally, Dhoni is my favourite player because he had led India. He has handled himself well on and off the field. He has transformed a team of juniors into an effective unit," the captain in Sana came out.

She has decided to relinquish captaincy post World T20 and wants to personally supervise a smooth change of guard by continuing as an ordinary team member before calling time on her illustrious career.

Sana is quick to dismiss the notion that there will be any void once she leaves the game. "Always there will be somebody. We have been grooming my successor for the past three or four years.

Captaining Pakistan was an honour. I think this is the right time for the next captain to take over as we are two years away from the next World T20 and Asian Games gold medal, that we would be defending.

This would be the best time for the new captain to come in and settle down." Perhaps Pakistan's men's team's captains, who have unintentionally been a part of musical chair that is played for the hot seat can take a leaf out of their women's team captain's book.

"That is the trend that I would like to set in our country because it is very important that the leadership passes on smoothly. After retirement, I will continue as a player. I will be in the team as a player until the new captain settles down. Jayawardene and Sangakara have shown this and they have been wonderful ambassadors of the game. I think I will be available as a player."
