PCB announces Women’s League dates and venue
The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the inaugural season of the Women’s League will both take place at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in March 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a press release on Thursday.
The cricket board said that four city-based teams will participate in a double-league format, with each team featuring 12 local and 6 international players.
The PSL 8 final will take place the day before the solo match between the top two teams after 12 league games. 2023’s PSL 8 will take place from February 9 until March 19.
PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja spoke on this occasion and expressed his happiness with the introduction of the women’s league.
“It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Women’s League where our existing players will share dugouts with the international players. This competition will help them further develop their talents and draw future female cricket players to this wonderful sport. The league, which will consist of 13 matches, will feature current and former female cricket trailblazers,” Raja was quoted as saying.
Some of the matches will take place before the HBL Pakistan Super League 8 matches in order to increase coverage and promotion of this project.
The goal of this event is to strengthen Pakistan’s cricket-playing culture across all formats and genders. Through this competition, we’re not only developing appealing brands to boost our cricket industry’s economy, but we’re also giving people professional chances.
