Sana Mir captaincy and performance are poor, she try to inject in team her buddies similar to Misbah and never success in world cup, half of team is her favorite friends in team, she is biased and doing preference to her own benefit, even though she say she is bowling all rounder but you will notice her performance similar to our Misbah with tuk tuk and never win any cup. Wrong captain for wrong place, her own place is not justify in team.
