Concerned about the national team’s poor performance in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup. Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja said on Tuesday. The PCB is planning to introduce a proper domestic set-up for them. Including a T20 franchise-based league that will begin early next year to unearth new talent.
“In our women’s cricket setup, there is a lot of work to be done. You must consider the limitations and other issues that are unique to women in sports. We must take steps to create a proper domestic calendar for women. Complete with three-day matches “Ramiz told reporters in this building.
Pakistan finished the World Cup with an 0-4 record, finishing at the bottom of the points table.
Pakistan has three league games left against the West Indies, England, and New Zealand.
PCB Planning to launch the Women’s PSL next year.
The PCB president stated that, in contrast to other countries. The pool of talent in women’s cricket in Pakistan was not diverse. Which was one of the reasons for the slow progress. “However, I am not dissatisfied with the World Cup performances. We have a base, and we are planning to launch a PSL for women with foreign players in January of next year. As well as a PSL for under-19 players in October of this year “He stated.
Ramiz stated that he was excited to launch the two new properties. Because the PSL had grown into a successful brand in Pakistan and there was a market for a women’s tournament as well.
“The PCB also wants to increase its revenue streams because we are currently completely reliant on our income from ICC shares and the PSL, and we need to increase our properties to make more money,” he added.
According to Ramiz, economic power is essential for any country to progress in modern cricket.
He also stated that he was considering introducing an auction system similar to the Indian Premier League for the PSL to replace the draft system currently in use for franchises to sign players.
“In an auction system, franchises will have to bid for the players they want, which means more money for the PSL and players like the IPL. We obviously cannot compete with the IPL in terms of money right now, but having an auction system will make a significant difference.”
