Pakistan's first ever female cricket commentator Marina Iqbal makes history
ISLAMABAD - Former national team player Marina Iqbal has made history in Pakistan.

Iqbal was a part of the national team from 2009 to 2015.
Talking to media, Iqbal said that she became a cricketer after watching Imran Khan’s victory speech at the 1992 World Cup. “I always wanted to be a commentator and now I think I have opened a new door for girls in Pakistan,” she said.
