When 30 year old Anisa Mohammed stepped onto the Southend Club Cricket Stadium in Karachi earlier today, she became only the 5th woman to play 100 T20is.
She spoke with Windies Media after the game:
She played her 💯 T20 international today and is the all-time leading wicket-taker (male or female) in the T20 International Cricket. @14anisa shares her emotions on her milestone. #WindiesCricket #ItsOurGame #WomenInMaroon #WIWvPAKW pic.twitter.com/Cms01CHm3U

And to underline how talented she is, Anisa has the most wickets and best bowling average of all the five.
Ahead of her, in terms of matches played, are Australia’s Ellyse Perry, England’s Jenny Gunn, her Windies teammate Deandra Dottin and New Zealand’s Suzie Bates.
Anisa took 2/17 today against Pakistan in the 1st of 3 T20is taking her wicket tally to 115 at an average of 16.26 and at an impressive economy rate of 5.49.
Her best bowling figures came in October 2009 when she took her 1st of 3 5-wicket hauls.
She took 5/10 against South Africa – the other two 5-fers came against New Zealand in 2013 and again versus South Africa in 2018.
