Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja has signalled the green light for a Women’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) in February 2023.
Reportedly, the league was supposed to start this year, however, due to no space in the current window frame, plans have been shifted to the next year.
The domestic series will help Pakistan’s national cricket women’s team to practice and improve their game, preparing them for bigger leagues and tournaments down the road.
While their performance has been a bit dodgy the past few months, the girls are doing everything in their power to improve with the limitations they have.
Moreover, during a Press Conference in March 2022 – Ramiz Raja shared that even though there is a lot of work that is still needed to be done in women’s cricket, it is also important to understand that there are restrictions and limitations which are unique to the women in the sports industry. There are steps that are needed to be placed in order to create a window for a 3-day match.
He went on to say that he is not disappointed by the previous performance displayed at the World Cup, rather the PSL matches that will invite foreign players to join will help our players grow as sports stats. Keeping in mind PSL’s success in Pakistan, the Chairman has high hopes that the women’s league will also perform well.
“The PCB also wants to increase its revenue streams because right now we are totally dependent on your income from the ICC shares and PSL, and we have to increase our properties for more money” he shared. “In an auction system franchise will have to bid for the players they want and that could mean money into the PSL and for the players,” he added.
We wish all the ladies the best of luck and wish them all the success in the world. Until then, stay tuned to WOW360 for more news and updates.
