KARACHI: Sana Mir, former captain of the Pakistan women’s cricket team, on Saturday welcomed the idea of holding a Pakistan Super League for women, saying a local league will help female cricketers gain exposure and experience.
In an interview, the former all-rounder stressed the need of having more teams in women’s domestic tournaments to increase the players’ pool.
“I have been insisting on women’s PSL since day one; our female cricketers need such tournaments,” she said, adding that this will help them enhance their skills.
Mir added that when you share a dressing room with top players from other countries, you not only learn new things but also get to understand their thought processes.
“A league like PSL for women will surely help our cricketers, there’s no doubt. If you want them to go beyond their current limits, then a locally sponsored league is inevitable,” she added.
Last month, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja had announced that he aims to start a PSL for U19 and women cricketers, saying that PCB has already started working on the idea.
