Sana Mir, Pakistan women's most-capped international player, has taken a break from the game to "plan and reset my future objectives and targets". A PCB statement said Mir would miss next month's ODI and T20I series against England in Malaysia.
Mir, or the PCB, did not specify her exact reason for the break or when she would be back in action.
"I have decided to take a break from international cricket and, as such, will not be available for selection for next month's series against England. I will utilise this time to plan and reset my future objectives and targets," Mir said in the release. "My best wishes will remain with the Pakistan national women's team in the series against England and I am sure they'll produce their best cricket."
A training camp of 20 probables will begin in Karachi on November 21 before the squads for the ODIs and T20Is are announced on November 27. The team will depart for Kuala Lumpur on November 30.
The ODIs, part of the Women's Championship, will be played on December 9, 12 and 14 before the T20Is on December 17, 19 and 20. All six games will be played at the Kinrara Oval.
