Pakistan Women Cricketers need opportunities to get better, says Babar Azam

Pakistan Women Cricketers need opportunities to get better, says Babar Azam

The captain of the Pakistan men’s cricket team, Babar Azam believes in the talent of the nation’s women cricketers and says that they can get better once more opportunities are provided to them.

Apparently, men and women players of Pakistan are differentiated on behalf of their performances due to the lack of opportunities, advertising, focus, and hype of women cricket.

Notably, women cricket in Pakistan has seen rapid growth over the last few years, yet, it is nowhere around the level of men’s cricket in the country. As far as Pakistan Women Cricket is compared with that of other nations, the ladies out there are provided with greater exposure and opportunities.

Babar’s statement came after Pak-W thrashed Sri Lanka-W in the T20I opener of the three-match series by six wickets. Tuba Hasan, the leg-spinner debutant inspired the masses with her appealing performances.

The young girl was trending on Twitter for her majestic spell of 4-1-8-3. Her spell became the best-ever bowled by a Pakistani women cricketer. Tuba’s spell includes the wickets of Harshitha Madavi, Anushka Sanjeewani, and Kavisha Dilhari.

Babar Azam believes women cricketers should be given more opportunities

The skipper’s statement reads,

“Women’s cricket has a lot of potentials. They just need ample opportunities to get better by the time,”

He believes women across the world must get an opportunity to play more bilateral series to compete in the international circuits.

“Be it Pakistan or any other team, women cricketers should play more bilateral series to become more competent at the international level. It is good to see women cricketers taking part in league cricket. I hope this continues long for them,”
