Javeria Khan wants PCB to increase players’ pool


Pakistan women’s team opener Javeria Khan thinks that by increasing players’ pool the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) can improve the quality of women’s cricket in the country.

“It is important to bring in more girls into the game to rope in competitive cricket. More players will increase the quality of the game and team’s bench will get stronger,” Javeria said.

The 31-years-old cricketer opined that the cricket board should adopt ways to improve the game and let the players train under the supervision of the game’s experts.

“It is a dire need to encourage girls at grass-roots. It will be an extra advantage if we get the girls showing interset at school and college level. Bring them together on one platform and let them train under the supervision of trained coaches,” she said.

While talking about his personal performance, Javeria said that she aims to win every match for Pakistan.

“My priority is to contribute worthy for my team and win matches. I want to leave the game with having my name is world’s achievement charts,” she concluded.

Javeria has represented Pakistan in 98 ODIs and 91 T20Is. She was the highest run-scorer from Pakistan in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2018.
