Kainat Imtiaz Facts

  1. Kainat was a ball-picker during the 2005 Women’s Asia Cup that was being held in Pakistan. During the tournament, she had an opportunity to witness the legendary Indian pace bowler Jhulan Goswami in action. The experience made such an impact on her that she had decided to pursue cricket as a profession and become a pace bowler like Jhulan.
  2. In 2007, she had captained her school in an Under-17 cricket tournament that had been organized by the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board), the governing body for the sport in the country. For her performances, she had been named the ‘Player of the Tournament’.
  3. In 2009, she had been included in the preparatory camp that had been organized for the Pakistan team before the upcoming ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. She was the youngest player selected for the camp and had later been picked as a reserve player for the World Cup team.
  4. 12 years after the life-changing events of 2005, Kainat was a member of the Pakistan squad at the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. Her hero, Jhulan, was also a part of the tournament. During the tournament, she had approached Jhulan, taken a picture with her, and had written an emotional note on Instagram recounting the influence that Jhulan had had on her cricketing career.
  5. In October 2021, she had been named to Pakistan’s squad for the 2021 Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournament that was held in Zimbabwe. The tournament was badly impacted by COVID-19 which eventually caused its cancellation and Pakistan had managed to qualify for the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup based on the team’s ranking before the tournament.
