Pakistan Women’s Cricket team had a below-average outing in the recently concluded women’s World Cup 2022 held in New Zealand. Out of 7 league matches, there were able to win just 1 against West Indies. Although the results went otherwise, the girls in green had several positives to take away from the tournament.
Soon after the team landed home, they began their preparations for a busy calendar ahead of them. Unlike other teams, Pakistan Cricket Board has ensured that their women’s team gets enough matches and exposure to better prepare themselves for the busy year that leads to another Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa next year.
The next 12 months include the historic and much-awaited Birmingham Commonwealth Games, Asian Games in China, Women’s T20 Asia Cup, ICC Women’s U19 World Cup, and ICC Women’s T20 World Cup for Pakistan.
Pakistan’s tour of Ireland was announced earlier this year where they are scheduled to play a tri-series, also involving the World Champions Australia. This series is scheduled to be played in Dublin. This series will act as a perfect preparatory series for both Australia and Pakistan who will meet again in England at the Commonwealth Games.
Also, Pakistan’s women’s participation in the Asian Games in Guangzhou is confirmed, though efforts are being made to add a few more series for them so that there are more opportunities for players who are knocking at the doors of the national side.
Pakistan is also set to host more international cricket in the coming season.
This goes on to show Pakistan’s commitment to elevating the standard of women’s cricket in Pakistan by giving them enough game time and exposure to quality opponents.
