PCB appoints first female director
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed a female director for the first time, Alia Zafar who served as a human resources executive previously
The PCB’s new constitution makes it obligatory to include at least one woman among four independent directors on its board of governors.
“I welcome the newly-appointed independent members, especially Ms Alia Zafar, the first female independent member, which is a giant step forward in enhancing the PCB’s governance structure,” PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said.
The revamped structure of the PCB has resulted in only six provincial teams — Balochistan, Central Punjab, Southern Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Northern — competing in premier first-class cricket tournaments.
