Dubai [UAE], Feb 17 (ANI): Pakistan women's cricket team captain Sana Mir believes that it is time for the country to introduce women's Pakistan Super League (PSL) as the tournament is likely to give female players a lot of exposure.
"PSL is a wonderful brand that has been produced by Pakistan. We [Paksiatn women's team] have been playing international cricket for the last ten years and we are in the top ten. We just defeated West Indies and we have been playing good cricket. Deandra Dottin came to Pakistan to play and I think it was a big message and I think it is time we introduced a women's version of the PSL," Geo TV quoted Sana, as saying.
"It is important for Pakistan women team. When we talk about improving the women's game and competing with other international teams, then we need to give out girls' exposure. Other teams give their women players
' exposure and it is important our players are engaged," she said.
Sana said that that coaching sessions with foreign coaches will give make a huge difference in their team while adding that the tournament could prove to be an 'excellent initiative" for new talent.
"Our players can have sessions with coaches from abroad and that can make a huge difference. It is an excellent initiative for new talent to be found who can be groomed to play for Pakistan," Sana said.
The men's PSL is inaugurated this week and when Sana was asked to pick her favorite team she said, "Right now I am supporting cricket."
"Shoaib Malik has been showing form, AB de Villiers is a pleasure to watch and I
'm a fan of Darren Sammy's captaincy," she added. (ANI)
