Javeria Khan made her ODI debut on May 6, 2008, against Sri Lanka and made her T20 debut on May 25, 2009, against Ireland. She played in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2009 and was selected to play in the 2010 Asian Games in China.
She has the record of highest ODI score by a Pakistan women’s player. Being the vice-captain of the team, she is the current second highest run-getter in Pakistan team. Apart from the national side, she plays for South Zone Women in the domestic circuit.
She was the skipper of the winning Team Dynamites in the recently concluded PCB Tri-angular One Day Women’s Cricket Tournament. She led the team from the front and scoring a wonderful ton in the final match against Team Challengers.
Dependable, calm and a complete team player these are the terms you would generally associate with Javeria Khan. A top-order batter Khan’s tryst with cricket started accidentally when she gave Economics class a miss and attended a cricket trial instead. She was never really inclined to cricket, despite constantly playing cricket with her brothers. As fate would have it, Khan performed well in the trials and subsequently selected to play for South Zone.
She performed well in the domestic set up and soon made her ODI debut for Pakistan in the year 2008 and T20 debut in the year 2009 and has established herself as one of the key players for Pakistan. She has scored over 4000 in both the formats and solidified her position at the top of the order.
Short in stature, her ability to milk the opposition bowling attack in one’s and two’s helps her to keep herself busy at the crease, but in past two years, she has developed her power game. Her strike rate in the T20Is has risen considerably and it’s helping Pakistan to get off to a brisk start.
Her numbers aside, Javeria’s story is one of passion and perseverance. Having first been selected for Pakistan as a front line off-spinner, Javeria’s bowling action was called suspect quite early in her career. She was subsequently dropped from the side and had to force her way back into the setup as a top-order batter. Several years spent working on her game meant she moulded herself into one of Pakistan’s leading run-getters over the years – finding a way to score runs in all conditions against the very best.
