Dar, the experienced right-hand batter and right-arm offbreak, who has played 82 ODIs and 108 T20Is for Pakistan has found herself in the midst of an unfortunate incident.

Jatt confirmed that this sad incident and cheating has taken place against Nida Dar when her father is hospitalised and her brother is also bedridden following an accident.

“Become Nida’s voice. Alas, the ceremony was called to decorate the national cricketer “Nida Dar”. Nida’s father is undergoing treatment at the hospital due to a contagious disease, while his brother is alone in bed due to an accident. 5 lakhs not found yet,” Jatt wrote over Twitter, urging people to come in support of Dar in this period.

It is here that Amir came into the picture and pledged to provide the cricketer and her family the support that they desperately need.

Fondly known among fans as the ‘Lady Boom Boom’ with a reference to former Pakistan captain and explosive allrounder Shahid Afridi, Nida Dar has been playing for her country since 2010.

The experienced cricketer aged 34 has taken 176 wickets and scored nearly 2,500 runs in international cricket.

Dar, with 103 scalps, is the only Pakistan cricketer – in either category – with 100 and more T20I wickets to her name. Her tally of 73 ODI wickets is the third-highest for a Pakistan woman behind Sana Mir and Sadia Yousuf.
