PCB to fire senior women cricketers - Report

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken notice of the Women's Cricket team's mediocre performances in the ongoing ICC Women's ODI World Cup in New Zealand. Bismah Maroof's side could manage one win out of seven matches played in a thrilling encounter versus West Indies. 

As a consequence, the PCB reportedly has decided to get rid of senior cricketers, continually failing to perform in recent times. The initiative will be taken to build up the team from scratch, providing a space for new talent which will contribute to the development of Pakistan Women's cricket. 

Losing the last match of the campaign versus the hosts New Zealand by 71 runs, Pakistan became the first team to be knocked out of the Women's ODI World Cup. They will reach back in the country on 28th March. 

Apart from the poor performances, the PCB has also talked about grouping in Bismah's team. The matter will be discussed officially in a meeting in a short course.


As far as the event is concerned, Australia are ranked at the top of the table with seven out of seven wins followed by South Africa with four victories out of six played. The two semifinals will take place on 30th and 31st March whereas, the final is scheduled for 3rd April.
