While Twenty20 cricket has taken off across the world, we got our first taste of a domestic Twenty20 competition last week with the inaugural Quadrangular Twenty20 event.
The tournament saw four teams play six matches each with the top sides after the pool stages qualifying for the final.
The top 64 players in the country were split into four different regions, including North Zone (Peshawar, Abbottabad, Islamabad) Central Zone-Blues (Lahore, Sialkot) Central Zone-Greens (Multan, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi) and South Zone (Karachi, Hyderabad, Quetta).
It was a great opportunity for everybody to play Twenty20 for the first time in a competitive domestic tournament and for some of the emerging players in Pakistan to see what is needed to make the national side.
I was really impressed by the standard and it was an important step forward for women's cricket in Pakistan that we have this kind of structure in place.
From a personal perspective it was really nice to be one of the Player of the Series for my 12 wickets and 145 runs. The other Player of the Series, Bismah Maroof, our young left-handed opening batsman, again confirmed her potential as she topped the run scoring list, while it was really good to see Asfa Batool taking wickets as well.
The tournament has given us a good idea of who the best Twenty20 players are in the country and I am sure that will influence the thinking of the selectors when they meet to decide who will be in our training camp squads ahead of the series against West Indies.
One disappointment of the past week was the size of crowds at matches, which were again really made up only of families of players, but on the other hand it was great to have most major news crews in Pakistan covering the final.
There was even talk at one stage that the final was going to be televised and although it didn't happen this time, it would be great for us to get some broadcast coverage in the future, for this event.
With the final of the tournament being held in the National Stadium at Karachi, it was great to play on a ground that will be hosting the Champions Trophy in September.
I hope all the top players will be able to make it to Pakistan and I know my team-mates and I are keen to watch as many games as we can live, in order to pick up some tips from some of the stars of the men's game.
