LAHORE: Maham Tariq, one of the national women camp trainees, has pulled out in protest against what she called “injustice” being done to junior players.
The training camp for ICC Cricket World Cup, which is scheduled for March and April this year, began at Hanif Mohammad High-Performance Centre (HPC) in Karachi on Saturday.
Maham wrote a letter to Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja and women cricket head Tania Mallick, complaining about the “injustice” done to her. She also said the senior players’ behaviour with juniors was unacceptable. “Fed up of sitting on the bench,” Maham complained.
Pakistan will face arch-rivals India on March 6 in the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022, after the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the schedule for the event.
The tournament will begin on March 4 at the Bay Oval in Tauranga, with the hosts New Zealand playing West Indies.
“The first set of games will also see two massive rivalries take the centre stage, with Australia taking on England at Seddon Park in Hamilton on March 5 and India facing Pakistan in Tauranga the following day,” ICC said in a press release.
