Cricketers start practice ahead of the Women's League exhibition matches

The ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 will feature three exhibition matches for women cricketers, who have already begun training for the upcoming games. The matches are scheduled to take place on March 8, 10, and 11 at Pindi Cricket Stadium, and they are expected to pave the way for a women’s PSL to be held in October later this year.

On Sunday, women cricketers arrived in Islamabad and began training at the Islamabad Cricket Club on Monday. One of the players present was Jahanara Alam from Bangladesh, while other foreign players rested from training after their arrival.

The squads of Amazons and Super Women were led by captains Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar and participated in batting, bowling, and fielding drills during their intense training sessions.

During the training, several national stars including Fatima Sana and Kainat Imtiaz were seen in action. As many as 10 foreign players have been signed for the exhibition matches, including Ireland’s Laura Delany, England’s Danni Wyatt, Maia Bouchier, Tammy Beaumont, and Australia’s Tess Flintoff for the Amazons team.

Meanwhile, the Super Women team will comprise Sri Lanka’s Chamari Athapaththu, Lauren Winfield-Hill of England, Jahanara Alam of Bangladesh, South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt, and Lea Tahuhu of New Zealand.

The same technology that is used to broadcast men’s matches will be utilized for the women’s matches, which will go live on A Sports and PTV Sports. The games will also be livestreamed for viewers around the world on the PCB and PSL YouTube channels.
