karachi: The Pakistan women's cricket team which will reach India on Sunday is more concerned about how it will adapt to the new ICC ODI rules rather than the mounting protests. "Our major concern is that since the ICC implemented the new rules in ODIs we have not played a one-day international," captain Sana Mir said.
