PCB takes strict notice of ‘Loyalty change’ in women cricket


PCB has decided to take strict action against the ones responsible for creating conflict in women’s cricket team and has said that players changing loyalties and the teams benefiting out of them would be banned.

This issue arose during Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah national women cricket championship being played at Islamabad when ten players of Omar Associates left the team to join Saga Sports a few hours before the start of match and also took part in the match against HEC. Due to shortage of players in Omar Associates, Islamabad managed to get a walk-over in the match.

Sources say PCB asked member of the governing board Maj (R) Naeem Gillani to investigate the matter and he has informed the board accordingly.

According to sources Saga sports could face a ban of at least six months for instigating players, whereas women cricketers who have played a major role in this issue will also face prohibition.

The senior General Manager women’s cricket Shamsa Hashmi said a complete inquiry is being conducted on this issue and immediate action will be taken against the ones responsible.
