Karachi: Feb 9, 2013
 
PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf might have blamed uncertain security situation in India for the national women’s team flop show in the World Cup but captain Sana Mir returned home all praise for the hospitality showered on the team by the hosts.
 
The Pakistan team finished last in the eight-team event and had to remain confined to the Barabati stadium complex because of security fears but Sana did not make an issue of the fact.
 
“We were well taken care off in the stadium and the hospitality shown by the Indian people was touching. That is why I hope relations between the two countries only improve,” Sana told reporters after returning home.
 
“I think there is a need for more normal relations and more matches between Pakistan and India,” she added.
 
Ashraf had said after a meeting with interior minister, Rehman Malik in Islamabad on Friday that the performance of the team was affected by security situation.
 
The PCB chief also said that players were overwhelmed by fears as no hotel was willing to give them security.
 
Sana said the team’s poor performance was due to strong competition and batting failure.
 
“But we did well in patches, for the first time we were able to bowl Australia out in a match,” she said.
 
Malik was also quoted as saying that he would raise the issue of not giving proper security to the Pakistan team with the Indian government.
 
“Not giving security to our womens team is a concern and I will raise this issue with the Indian government,” he said.
