"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 a media 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."

Because of the break, the 33-year-old will miss next month's ICC Women's Championship ODIs and T20Is against England.

The 20-probable training camp for the ODIs and T20I series will commence at the Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre in Karachi from 21 November, while the squads will be announced on 27 November.

The team will depart for Kuala Lumpur on 30 November.

Pakistan are placed fifth on the ICC Women's Championship table with 15 points from seven games.
