Kainat has been playing cricket since a very young age. "I was born in 1992, the year in which Pakistan won the Cricket World Cup" she says. "My parents decided that that was going to set the stage for me."⠀
Kainat’s International career started in 2010 when she played against South Africa in a T20 cricket match. In 2017, she represented Pakistan in a series of 10 matches against the Under-19 Boys team, where she was declared player of the series.
The Aga Khan Higher Secondary School’s administration made sure that Kainat had academic help available outside classrooms, accommodating her busy life as a national cricketer.
Since its inception in 1995, the Aga Khan Higher Secondary School (AKHSS), Karachi has strived to provide quality education to its students. It is an institution with outstanding academic, extra-curricular and sports programmes.
AKHSS, Karachi strives to create a harmonious balance between academic demands, sporting and cultural activities, and community life. It challenges its pupils to be intellectually inquisitive and socially conscious. The School believes that while what students know is important, the true measure of a student’s education is the ability to analyse what they do not know.
At AKHSS, Karachi, parent-school partnerships are encouraged. At the beginning of the academic session, an orientation for parents is organised where they are informed about the school's policies and procedures, as well as the school's expectations and the role they can play in their children’s education.
