Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team Captain Bismah Maroof Regrets No Increase in Match Fees in Last 8 Years | Cricket News


LAHORE: Pakistan women’s cricket team captain Bismah Maroof grumbled about the failure of the pcb to increase match fees of female players for the past eight years.
Bismah’s comments came during a press conference she addressed in Lahore ahead of the start of the home series against Ireland.
She said the match fees for the national team players have not been increased since the last eight years.
The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) recently announced that its women cricketers will be paid the same match fee as the men. Bismah was asked about the BCCI’s move.
“I think the women’s cricketers also put in a lot of hard work. But there is no doubt that women’s cricket in Pakistan has yet to progress to the level of countries like India, England, Australia, etc.,” she said.
“… it is also a fact that the PCB has done a lot in recent years to reward the women cricketers and provide them with the best facilities and coaches.”
The Pakistan captain and batsman, who returned to international cricket after motherhood, said the home series against Ireland will help the players prepare for next year’s ICC World T20 Cup.
The Pakistan women’s team surprised everyone by beating India in last month’s Asia Cup in Bangladesh, but overall the team’s performance in major tournaments has been quite disappointing.
