Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, has shown an interest in investing in Pakistan’s inaugural women’s cricket league, which was set to begin to play in October of this year. Malala Yousafzai wishes to own a PWL team which is about to start in October.
Malala, whose husband Asser Malik remained affiliated with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), reportedly enquired about the bidding procedure for women’s league teams, according to Geo News’s sources. The activist has reached out to PCB’s executive board to discuss joining the league’s female team.
Malala will probably try to buy into the women’s league. Malala has already discussed her desire to join the women’s league with former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja. It is worth noting that Ramiz introduced ‘The Women’s League’ at the inaugural PJL opening ceremony in October of last year. As far as anybody could tell, the competition ran concurrently with Season 8 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The PCB management committee, however, decided to push back the start of the women’s league until October.
During PSL 8 in Rawalpindi, there were also three women’s exhibition matches.
Ten international cricketers were part of the action as two teams, the Amazons and the Super Women, squared off in three matches. The exhibition series was won by Bismah Maroof’s Amazons with a score of 2-1.
In the exhibition matches, Ireland’s Laura Delany, England’s Lauren Winfield-Hill, Maia Bouchier, Danni Wyatt, and Tammy Beaumont, Australia’s Tess Flintoff, Sri Lanka’s Chamari Athapaththu, Bangladesh’s Jahanara Alam, and New Zealand’s Lea Tahuhu all played.
Malala Yousafzai wishes to own a PWL team and is all hopeful regarding this.
