The recent ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 saw a thrilling competition between the top young female cricketers from around the world, with India taking on England in the final of the tournament. India emerged victorious after defeating England by 7 wickets.

As ICC announced the Team of the Tournament, no Pakistani player managed to make it to the top XI. However, Anosha Nasir was named in the line-up as the twelfth player.

Anosha Nasir was one of Pakistan’s standout players, taking 10 wickets and earning the Player of the Match award for her 2/17 figures against Ireland.
