LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday congratulated country’s star player Sana Mir on her inclusion in the ICC Women’s Committee as one of the three current player representatives.

Former England player Clare Connor has been retained as the chair of the ICC Women’s Committee, which also includes PCB managing director Wasim Khan as one of the full member representatives.

Sana, the former Pakistan captain and leading wicket-taker in women’s ODIs, is joined by Australia’s Lisa Sthalekar and Mithali Raj of India as current players’ representatives on the committee that met for the first time in London on Thursday during the ICC annual conference week.

PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, speaking on the development, said: “On behalf of the PCB, I want to congratulate Sana Mir on her inclusion in the ICC Women’s Committee. I am confident that Sana will bring great insight and knowledge to the group, which will only help women’s international cricket get stronger.

“Sana’s latest achievement will attract and motivate our young girls, which, in turn integrates with our strategy on the growth and development of womens cricket in Pakistan.”

Sana thanked the ICC for the opportunity.

“It is an absolute honour to represent the current players at this elite forum and become their voice. Women cricket is growing around the world and I feel this is a very courageous and inclusive step by the ICC to have current players involved in the promotion and development of the game,” Sana said.

“We will be the voice of the players, we can take the notes from the committee and get the players on-board on how the ICC plans to promote the game. It is great to be a part of this committee and I look forward to giving my views and making a positive impact for the cause of women’s cricket around the world.”
