Women’s cricket has been on an upward curve in Pakistan in recent times with more and more females getting drawn towards taking up the sport professionally. The peaking interest in the game has also been accompanied by females taking up the role of umpires in the field.
In the PCB’s umpires’ panels, there are currently nine female umpires belonging to rural and urban centers out of which five of them attended a workshop in Lahore this week.
They are leading the drive to ensure the female representation on the cricket field experiences an increase with women getting involved in umpiring jobs.
These workshops intend to bring the match officials across the country up to date with the latest laws of the game, PCB domestic playing conditions, code of conduct and clothing equipment regulations before the commencement of the domestic season.
