    Pakistan Women's performance under Head Coach David Hemp

    Lahore, 1 October 2020:

    Australia-based David Hemp has been appointed as the head coach of the Pakistan women’s national cricket team following a robust and transparent recruitment process.

    Hemp, who turns 50 next week, has previously coached the Melbourne Stars’ and Victorian women's cricket teams in Australia’s Women's Big Bash League between 2015 and 2020, and is also a former Bermuda and Glamorgan captain.

    Hemp played 271 first-class matches and scored over 15,000 runs for Glamorgan, Free State and Warwickshire. He also represented Bermuda in 22 one-day internationals from 2006 to 2009, scoring 641 runs with a century and four half-centuries.

    Hemp is a qualified UK level four coach who has had a coaching role with Australia’s team for cricketers with an intellectual disability; Premier Cricket’s Prahran and was the director of coaching at Scotch College.

    Urooj Mumtaz, Acting Head of Pakistan Women’s Wing and Chair of women’s selection committee: “The PCB is pleased to have appointed David Hemp as Pakistan national women’s team head coach. David brings with him wealth of experience and knowledge, more importantly around women’s cricket development, which is extremely critical to our strategy as part of our endeavour to increase the pool of cricketers and also help them top rise to the level of the front-running international sides.

    “David has worked for five years in Australia with the Melbourne and Victoria women’s sides and he is a perfect fit for the role we were looking for as he will be able to use that experience and knowledge to translate into our system that will ultimately benefit Pakistan women’s cricket.

    “I am sure our players will make optimum use of David’s expertise and strict work ethics, while I am sure David will have an enjoyable time when he relocates to Pakistan to join the elite company of illustrious coaching staff of Atiq-uz-Zaman, Grant Bradburn, Mohammad Yousuf, Mohammad Zahid and Saqlain Mushtaq at our National High Performance Centre.”

    David takes over from Iqbal Imam, who had succeeded Mark Coles. Pakistan will feature in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier next year for the event proper that will take place in New Zealand in 2022.

    The PCB had advertised for the role on 18 August and a total of 38 coaches, including 18 foreigners from various Test playing countries had expressed their interests. The final interviews were carried by Wasim Khan (PCB Chief Executive), Urooj Mumtaz and Grant Bradburn (Head of International Coach Development) last week.

    So our women team is so lucky enough to get such a high profile coach where our men team is so unfortunate to have unskilled and clueless coach Misbah.

    A total of 38 coaches, including 18 foreigners from various Test playing countries had expressed their interests.

    So if Wasim Khan acted honestly we could easily get a high professional, skilled foreign coach for men team.So neither money nor security is a high issue to get a good coach.

    PCB announces women’s High Performance Camp in Karachi from 8 October

    • 27 invited players and player support personnel to be in bio-secure bubble

    • Announcement of women’s camp completes PCB’s full resumption of cricket activities in the 2020-21 domestic season under Covid-19 protocols

    Lahore, 2 October 2020:

    Three days after the Pakistan Cricket Board’s 2020-21 domestic cricket season got under way in Multan, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced a 27-player High Performance Camp that will be staged at the Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre and National Stadium in Karachi from 8 to 31 October.

    The announcement of women’s High Performance Camp has completed a slow but careful and strategic resumption of all cricket activities. The 2020-21 season had begun on 30 September with the National T20 Cup and the six Cricket Association U19 squads were named on Thursday for the three-day and one-day National U19 Tournaments, which will be played from 13 October to 29 November.

    The 27 cricketers invited for the High Performance Camp are: Aiman Anwar, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Ayesha Naseem, Ayesha Zafar, Bismah Maroof, Diana Baig, Fatima Sana Khan, Iram Javed, Javeria Khan, Javeria Rauf, Kainat Imtiaz, Kaynat Hafeez, Maham Tariq, Muneeba Ali, Nahida Khan, Najiha Alvi, Nashra Sandhu, Natalia Pervaiz, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Rameen Shamim, Saba Nazir, Sadia Iqbal, Sidra Amin, Sidra Nawaz and Syeda Aroob Shah

    As part of the PCB Covid-19 protocols, all 27 players and player support personnel will undergo first round of testing at their residences, the cost of which will be reimbursed by the PCB. Players and player support personnel with negative tests will then assemble in Karachi, where they will undergo the second round of tests before being allowed to integrate with the larger group.

    During the camp, the players and player support personnel will undergo third round of testing to ensure their health and safety. During the training period, the players and player support personnel will follow the bio-secure protocols while being stationed at a hotel in Karachi.

    The High Performance Department will appoint the player support personnel, who will be announced in due course.

    Meanwhile, Lahore-based cricketers have been visiting the NHPC and taking advantage of the presence of experienced coaches in Atiq-uz-Zaman and Mohammad Zahid. The two coaches have split their time between men and women cricketers, while giving them the required attention and training as per their requirements.

    Atiq-uz-Zaman: “I have been impressed with their fitness standards. Despite the Covid-19 lockdown, the girls have maintained good fitness, which reflects their positive and professional approach. Fitness is the key, which specially helps in fielding and I am pleased with the dedication these girls are showing to further hone their skills. They are willing to go an extra yard to improve something which hasn’t been traditionally a hallmark of our cricket.”

    Mohammad Zahid: “Fast bowling is all about rhythm and the quickies are not too far from the top flight. The more these girls will bowl in the nets, the better they will get. Our objective is to help them rise to the standard where they play and perform in competitive cricket.

    “David Hemp’s appointment is a decision in the right direction. He is an experienced coach and understands the psyche, dynamics and requirements of women cricketers. All the coaches at the NHPC look forward to welcoming him in Lahore and will support and assist him in any way we can.”

    Wicketkeeper-batter Sidra Nawaz said: “It is very refreshing to be at the NHPC, which provides the cricket atmosphere and encourages professional cricketers to get actively involved and utilise the facilities. We have been missing this environment for nearly six months but with the opening of the NHPC and availability of renowned coaches, it is helping all of us to cover up for the lost time.”

    All-rounder Aliya Riaz said: “I know our domestic season has not been announced though the High Performance Camp has been unveiled, but we are taking this period as pre-season training and preparation so that they are not rusty when our cricket resumes. It is a blessing to have such outstanding training facilities with qualified coaches also available to us. We are thoroughly enjoying these training sessions and hope hard work in these sessions will pay off when our cricket commences.”

    I think PCB believes our women team puts more hard work and has better potential than our male team. Also we have too many leeches cling to our current male team and Wasim Khan is waiting these leeches drop out due to old age. Once we get rid of these old fat leeches nay be PCB will get rid of the leeches' nest king Misbah.

    Because its easier to dictate female than our male team. Players like Hafeez, Malik, Sarfraz and formers like Razzaq, Tanvir, Latif are really stressful o deal with.
    There were some foreigners applied but most of them are not qualified just like Misbah or slightly better than him.

    There should be thorough enquiry about appointing of Misbah if PCB wants to go forward.

    Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan eager to return to cricket with National High Performance camp


    • “There is a lot of excitement amongst the players to get back together after seven, eight months. Everyone, says Bismah Maroof

    • “I am very, very excited to get back and feel blessed to be taking the field again to play the sport, which I love, says Javeria Khan

    Karachi, 6 October 2020:

    Pakistan women’s national team will resume their cricketing activities when their High Performance Camp begins on Thursday in Karachi. A total of 27 players will undergo a 24-day-long camp between 8-31 October at the National Stadium and Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre during which they will work on their skills, fitness and play practice matches.

    Bismah Maroof, the captain of the women’s team, feels the players are excited to get together as a group after a gap of more than seven months, when they played the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia earlier this year, and are looking to make the most of the camp.

    Bismah Maroof, who has captained Pakistan in 38 ODIs and 18 T20Is, told pcb.com.pk: “There is a lot of excitement amongst the players to get back together after seven, eight months. Everyone is looking forward to making the most of this camp by working on their skills and fitness.

    “It is going to be a bit difficult to carry the rhythm from where we left but the aim should be to work hard and achieve it. We are looking forward to working with David Hemp, the newly appointed head coach, and try to get the best out of ourselves.

    “I spent a lot of time with my family during the lockdown and I enjoyed it. I spent my time with my husband and in-laws, with whom I had not been able to spend time much because of cricket. As a professional, I had to maintain my fitness to ensure I stay ready to hit the ground running whenever the opportunity arose. So, I focused on fitness work as I used to do running and cardio workouts at sunrise.”

    “As a captain, my aim is to take this team into the top four and this team has that potential. But, we need to work hard to achieve and fully utilise it, which is our focus over the next year so we can prepare ourselves for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in New Zealand in 2022.”

    For Javeria Khan, who has donned the golden star in 204 international matches, this camp serves an opportunity to get back her batting form through the practice matches. During the pandemic-induced lockdown days, the top-order batter returned to the hobbies she had as a student.

    Javeria Khan: “I am very, very excited to get back and feel blessed to be taking the field again to play the sport, which I love. This is a new beginning of sorts as we have a new head coach joining us and the players are getting together after a long time. We will try to enjoy our time together to the fullest.

    “It is great that we are having this camp at the start of our season as we can get in the rhythm. I will try to make the most of it and get back my batting form.

    “It was quite a tough challenge to cope with the halt that Covid-19 had brought. You enjoy breaks of two, three days, but when there is no end to such a long break in sight, you have to find different ways to motivate yourself to keep going. So, I picked up the hobbies, which I had left during my school days. I painted and sung, a little bit. I gave time to my family, which was nice.

    “We could not compromise on our fitness during this time and this lengthy break provided everyone an opportunity to strengthen their basics in regards to fitness. So, my aim was to enhance my fitness levels so I am ready both physically and mentally for the on-field challenges.”

    Karachi: Pakistan women’s team newly-appointed head coach David Hemp has aimed to take Pakistan in the top four teams in the world under his mentorship.

    Ex-Bermudian cricketer, who is set to arrive in Pakistan on October 18, talked exclusively in the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) recent podcast and stated his ambitions with the side.

    “I want to see consistency in performances, making individuals improve their games and personal stats. Apart from stats, I want to see the change in character too,” Hemp said.

    “I wish to improve the rankings and aspirationally feature in the top four sides in the world. When we take part in the world cups, opposition and media are talking about us,” he added.

    The 49-year-old revealed that he decided to take up the role after witnessing women’s team in the T20 World Cup held in Australia earlier this year.

    “I got the idea of squad’s talent from that tournament and when the opportunity arrived to coach international team, it was a straight-forward decision,” he maintained

    “I am excited to work for the next two years and hopefully adding some value collectively and individually,” he added.

    Karachi: Hailed from Bermuda, Pakistan women’s national team newly appointed head coach David Hemp shed light on local talent which inspired him to become a part of cricket-loving nation.

    During his first appearance before journalists as national team’s head coach at National Stadium on Thursday, Hemp talked about what attracted him to apply for the vacant position.

    “I think it was Pakistan’s exciting talent which impressed me a lot and here I am as a national women’s team coach,” said the former Bermuda cricketer.

    “I saw these girls playing in T20 World Cup earlier this year in Australia. They have the determination to become one of the top sides and I hope they become very soon,” he added.

    Coaching Experience

    Hemp, who has a vast 30 years of experience on coaching side, said he brings all his experience of 30 years by coaching several teams in Australia, UK, and Bermuda. The 49-years-old believes by the time he will be able to gell with the team and achieve his prime target which is to let them this team find its place into top four.

    “I am here to coach these girls and all the experience I have is for them. But, things can’t be changed immediately and we obviously need some time to understand each other. It is better to sit and talk with different perspectives to plan things with a smooth command. I hope with such an approach we will be able to achieve our goals,” he said.

    Power-hitting issue

    During the presser, hemp was asked to share his thoughts on existing power-hitting issues in the women’s team. “For me, it is not important for a player to hit only sixes. If they can clear the boundary, that’s enough. We want runs and I think fours can do the work. Power-hitting is important nowadays but then as I said, it needs a lot of power, and when players utilize their power, injury risk increases. So, my plan is to work with players to make them capable of hitting the ball hard and not only sixes,” he highlighted.

    Ultimate Goal

    Hemp said he is all set to plan things through conversating with players and selectors including Urooj Mumtaz and Marna Iqbal. “I think only through conversation we can get the things falling on the right track. I have already discussed a few things with Urooj and Marina and I am really looking forward to working with mutual understanding,” he said.

    “I see potential in this team and I want them to become one of the top teams around the world. Currently, England and Australia are the top two women sides and what makes them prominent is consistency. The same thing we will try to bring in this team and that is only possible when we work together,” he concluded.

    Seems like David hemp had a good mind set and good head on his shoulders agree with what he says

    I think the power hitting issue is something that needs to be addressed and love how he will try to approach it
    Not just about hitting sixes but to see if they can find the boundaries and to hit hard along the ground to conveys 1 run into 2 and etc... Hopefully the women's team can achieve good things under him

    Good luck mr hemp and to the girls in green all the best

    Pakistan women cricketers to tour South Africa next month

    • To play three ODIs and three T20Is in Durban and Pietermaritzburg from 20 January to 3 February; ODIs to be broadcast live by SuperSport, T20Is to be live-streamed

    • 27 women cricketers invited for a training camp to be held in a bio-secure environment in Karachi from 20 December

    • Tour to ensure focus remains on women’s cricket during the difficult Covid-19 times and also help to prepare the Pakistan side for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021

    • The two sides had featured in a nail-biting series when they last met in South Africa in May 2019

    • “The PCB created activities and held a domestic event for the women cricketers to attract and inspire them to remain connected with the game during these challenging times, but nothing can replace international cricket,” says Urooj Mumtaz

    Karachi, 14 December 2020:

    Pakistan women’s national cricket team will tour South Africa for three ODIs and three T20Is, which will be played in Durban and Pietermaritzburg from 20 January to 3 February, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced today.

    In consultation and discussions with Cricket South Africa, the series has been finalised to ensure women’s cricket continues to build on the momentum and successes following the trailblazing ICC Women’s Championship 2017-2020, ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cups 2018 and 2020.

    This additional series has also been organised to help both Pakistan and South Africa prepare for the upcoming assignments, in particular Pakistan, who will feature in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier in July 2021 for the event proper to be held in New Zealand in early 2022. South Africa, along with world champions England, Australia, India and hosts New Zealand, have already qualified for the World Cup after securing top positions in the ICC Women’s Championship 2017-20.

    The series will start and finish in Durban with the first ODI on 20 January and the third T20I on 3 February. Both matches will be played under lights. Durban will also stage the second ODI on 23 January before action will move to Pietermaritzburg where the third ODI and opening two T20Is will be played on 26, 29 and 31 January, respectively.

    To prepare and select the best available side and in continuation to the Women’s High Performance Camp and the National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship, the women’s national selection committee has invited 27 women cricketers for a training and preparation camp, which will be held at the Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre in Karachi from 20 December.

    From the start of the training camp until the side’s departure for Durban on 11 January, the women cricketers will remain and train in a bio-secure environment, besides undergoing routine testing in line with the PCB Covid-19 Protocols. Prior to joining the camp, each cricketer will require a negative test and another negative test after reporting for the camp before being allowed to integrate with other members of the group.

    The tour to South Africa will also be the first official assignment of head coach David Hemp and bowling coach Arshad Khan. While Hemp joined forces in October, Arshad was appointed in November. Mohammad Kamran Hussain will be the assistant coach at the training camp.

    This will be Pakistan women’s side’s second tour to South Africa within 18 months. In May 2019, Pakistan and South Africa featured in one of the most thrilling, keenly contested and exciting women’s series to date.

    The three ICC Women’s Championship ODIs ended in a 1-1 draw when the 12 May third ODI ended in a tie after Nashra Sandhu scored seven runs off the final two deliveries to help Pakistan reach 265 for nine in 50 overs. In the five-match T20I series, Pakistan took a 2-1 lead before South Africa bounced back to clinch the series 3-2.

    Women’s chief selector and head of the women’s cricket, Urooj Mumtaz: “It is critical for women’s cricket that we continue to invest in the game in these difficult times, otherwise all the efforts and hard work that have gone recently in building the profile, enhancing the standard and generating fan interest and following will be wasted.

    “I am delighted that Cricket South Africa have agreed to host us for a full tour despite having already qualified for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022. This is yet another indicator and reflection of our relationship with the Member boards who are willing to help and support each other in any possible way.

    “The PCB created activities and held a domestic event for the women cricketers to attract and inspire them to remain connected with the game during these challenging times, but nothing can replace international cricket. In this background, it is great that our women cricketers will reap the benefits of their loyalty and commitment to the game by getting an opportunity to play international cricket against a quality side.

    “South Africa are ranked above us, both in the ODI and T20I formats and, as such, I am sure this series will go a long way in not only assisting us to further improve our standards but also prepare for June’s ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021 as we aim to finish in the top three and progress to event proper in early 2022 in New Zealand.”

    27 probables for the South Africa tour are (18-player squad expected to be announced on Thursday, 31 December 2020 at the National Stadium press conference room early afternoon):

    Aiman Anwar, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Ayesha Naseem, Ayesha Zafar, Bismah Maroof, Diana Baig, Fatima Sana Khan, Iram Javed, Javeria Khan, Javeria Rauf, Kainat Imtiaz, Kaynat Hafeez, Maham Tariq, Muneeba Ali, Nahida Khan, Najiha Alvi, Nashra Sandhu, Natalia Pervaiz, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Rameen Shamim, Saba Nazir, Sadia Iqbal, Sidra Amin, Sidra Nawaz and Syeda Aroob Shah

    Cricket South Africa is pleased to announce the much-anticipated resumption schedule for the Momentum Proteas starting with the arrival of Pakistan in January 2021.

    The South African ladies side will be back to playing international cricket after a coronavirus-forced hiatus with a One-Day International and T20 series against Pakistan Women at the start of the year. The month long tour will consist of three ODI’s and three T20 Internationals that will be held under a bio-safe controlled environment, and CSA has pitched these to the government through the Ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture and have been given the green light.

    The tour will begin with a warm-up match at Durban’s Chartsworth Oval on January 16 against the South African Emerging squad before the ODI series commences at the nearby Hollywoodbets Kingsmead.

    All matches will be played in the KwaZulu-Natal province with the Momentum Proteas kickstarting their summer with a three-match One-Day series, starting on January 20 in Durban. The series-opener will be followed by two ODI matches on January 23 and January 26 at Kingsmead and Pietermaritzburg Oval respectively.

    Three T20 Internationals will then follow in umGungundlovu (29 and 31 January 2021) with the last fixture taking place in Durban’s Kingsmead grounds on the 3rd of February 2021.

    While the men’s Proteas have made a welcome return to international cricket, CSA Director of Cricket Graeme Smith is confident the Momentum Proteas home series against Pakistan Women will be a successful one for the game in our country.

    “We are thrilled as Cricket South Africa to be making this announcement that our Momentum Proteas are heading back to playing competitive cricket again, given the uncertainty and difficulties over the past six months,” Smith said.

    “Hosting this tour of Pakistan Women is incredibly important to us as this will give our Protea Women much needed game time and also bring in revenue that funds the entire game of cricket especially during these difficult times. We enjoy a very good working relationship with the Pakistan Cricket board and we look forward to hosting their ladies side in what promises to be an exciting tour in the new year.” he added.

    This series will also see the CSA official broadcast partner SuperSport broadcast live all the ODI Matches. SuperSport, who own the rights to broadcast all cricket in South Africa will provide cricket fans with the opportunity to enjoy the much anticipated white-ball action between the two sides live on the World of Champions, a major boost for the women’s game.

    Bismah Maroof withdraws from South Africa tour

    Lahore, 30 December 2020:

    Pakistan national women’s cricket team captain Bismah Maroof has withdrawn from next month’s tour to South Africa due to family reasons.

    Bismah had participated in the training camp in Karachi since 20 December, before returning to Lahore on Wednesday to rejoin her family.

    Urooj Mumtaz, head of women’s wing and chief selector: “Bismah approached us with a request to be exempted from next month’s tour to South Africa for family reasons, which we have accepted. She was obviously disappointed to miss the series, but family always has to come first.

    “When we’ll announce the 17-player squad on Thursday, we’ll name the stand-in captain as well for the South Africa tour, which comprises three ODIs and three T20Is.”

    Previous media release on the South Africa tour is available here.

    The women national selection committee announced a 17-player squad for ODI and T20I series against South Africa, which will be played in Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

    Javeria Khan will take the captaincy responsibilities in the absence of Bismah Maroof.

    Urooj Mumtaz-led selection committee, which also includes Asmavia Iqbal and Marina Iqbal, considered on-field performances in the National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship, played from 22 November until 1 December in Rawalpindi, along with form and fitness of the players in the High Performance and probables camp while finalising the squad.

    Ayesha Zafar, Kainat Imtiaz, Nahida Khan and Nashra Sandhu return to the women’s national team for the tour in which they will play the hosts in three ODIs and as many T20Is.

    Nahida Khan finished the National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship as the leading run-scorer with 154 runs at an average above 51 from her four outings. Her PCB Dynamites teammate Ayesha Zafar was the fourth best batter in the tournament with 111 runs.

    All-rounder Kainat Imtiaz was awarded player of the tournament award as she scored 111 runs from four outings, getting dismissed once, and took three wickets, while left-arm spinner Nashra Sandhu finished as the joint leading wicket-taker in the tournament with four wickets at 25.

    When the team takes the field for the first one-dayer at Kingsmead Stadium, Durban, on 20 January, it will mark their return to international cricket after over 10 months due to the Covid-19-enforced hiatus.

    After the second one-dayer at the same venue on 23 January, they will move to Pietermaritzburg where they will play the third ODI on 26 January and first two T20Is on 29 and 31 January.

    For the last T20I on 3 February, which will also be the last match of the tour, the team will return to Durban.

    Urooj Mumtaz, the chair of national women selection committee: “The squad has been selected after closely observing the players in the recent High Performance and probables camps and the National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship. We have seen significant improvement over the last three months in the intent and mindset of the players and the team is shaping up well for the upcoming series. The squad is well balanced and possesses a good blend of youth and experience for what promises to be an exciting tour.

    “Javeria Khan is an experienced campaigner and has the desired understanding of the game which is necessary to lead the national women’s team. She has undertaken this responsibility in the past and I am certain she will rise to the occasion and inspire the players.

    “Our last tour to South Africa in 2018 produced high-quality cricket and we are looking forward to yet another competitive tour, which will be instrumental for the new head coach David Hemp as well as in our preparations for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers.

    “Selecting a squad is never a stroll in the park and naming 17 players for this tour was no different. David and I have identified key areas of the game where these players must continue to improve. We will be having honest conversations with the players who were unable to make it this time, as they remain an integral part of our plans.”

    The 17-player squad will continue to prepare for the tour in the bio-secure environment, which was set up on 20 December for the probables camp, in Karachi before their departure on 11 January.

    Squad (for ODIs and T20Is)

    Javeria Khan (c), Aimen Anwar, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Ayesha Naseem, Ayesha Zafar, Diana Baig, Fatima Sana, Kainat Imtiaz, Muneeba Ali Siddiqui, Nahida Khan, Nashra Sandhu, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Sadia Iqbal, Sidra Nawaz (wk) and Syeda Aroob Shah

    The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) today confirmed that England Women will tour Pakistan in October, taking part in two IT20s and three ODIs.

    Heather Knight's team will be making their first-ever trip to Pakistan, and will be alongside the England Men's white-ball team, with the two IT20s played as double-headers in Karachi on 14 and 15 October.

    England Women will then stay in Karachi to compete in three ODIs on 18, 20 and 22 October.

    ECB Managing Director of Women's Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be making this historic announcement today. The England Women’s cricket team has never toured Pakistan before so this is another important step in our history and journey.

    "Not only will this be a cricket tour that provides valuable competitive opportunity to both teams, it should also serve as another powerful and positive message as we drive forward our equality ambitions for more women and girls to derive empowerment through the sport.

    "I was in Pakistan last year and I know the impact that a women’s tour such as this can have and how memorable an experience it will be for our players and staff.”

    PCB Chief Executive, Wasim Khan, said: “World champions England accompanying their men’s side for their first-ever tour to Karachi is an extremely powerful and strong announcement for Pakistan, our women’s cricketers as well as for the global sport.

    “This announcement reflects the confidence, trust and relationship the PCB enjoys with the England and Wales Cricket Board, and is an acknowledgement for the successful delivery of international and domestic cricket in the challenging and difficult 2020.

    “Women’s T20Is taking place before the men’s matches at the iconic National Stadium will mean more eyeballs will follow these matches than ever before. While this presents a great opportunity for the PCB to showcase the image and profile of women’s cricket, it is a chance for the women cricketers to demonstrate their talent and skills, and play their part in attracting, inspiring and motivating the next generation of women cricketers so that they can also fall in love with this great sport.

    “The three ODIs against the world champions will assist the Pakistan women’s side to access, gauge and fine-tune their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 preparations as they aim to produce improved performances than in the past.

    “Like the England men’s side, I am confident the women’s tour will open up opportunities for their future tours that will further contribute in promoting women’s cricket in Pakistan and helping our national side to narrow the gap with the leading nations.”

    Series schedule

    14 October: 1st IT20, National Stadium, Karachi
    15 October: 2nd IT20, National Stadium, Karachi
    18 October: 1st ODI, National Stadium, Karachi

    Momentum Proteas‚ the senior women’s national cricket team‚ will host Pakistan for a six-match limited-overs series without captain Dane van Niekerk and her deputy Chloe Tryon due to injuries.

    The South Africans will be back playing international cricket after the coronavirus-forced interruption with three ODIs and three T20 matches to be held in a bio-secure controlled environment.

    The tour will begin with a warm-up at Durban’s Chatsworth Oval on Saturday against the SA Emerging squad before the start of the ODI series at the Kingsmead Stadium on January 20.

    Team doctor Tshegofatso Gaetsewe said the two all-rounders are in advanced stages of rehabilitation after sustaining injuries late in 2020.

    “With regards to captain Van Niekerk and Tryon, both of them sustained lower back injuries in December and both are currently in different phases of rehabilitation‚” said Gaetsewe during a virtual media briefing on Monday with head coach Hilton Moreeng.

    “They are doing well. It is just that they are not eligible for this tour. But everything about their rehab is on track and we are satisfied and hopeful they will join us for the next tour.”

    Gaetsewe said another crucial member of the team, Marizanne Kapp‚ who was in hospital after a heart scare while playing for the Sydney Sixers in a Women’s Big Bash League match in November‚ is with the squad and in good health.

    “Kapp is currently with us in Durban, so she is part of our camp and our play group‚” said the doctor.

    “She is in good condition. Her health issues that we encountered in Australia have been taken care of and anything she needs subsequent to that she will get. For now, for this tour everything is OK. She is in good health and I don’t anticipate any problems.”

    Gaetsewe also revealed there had been positive cases of Covid-19 among the staff and playing squad since the team reported for the bio-secure environment on Friday, but said the positive cases were asymptomatic.

    “From the contingent of players and management‚ the first tests [for Covid-19] came out with two positive results. Forty-one people were tested and one member of staff and one player tested positive. Neither of them were ill and neither of them had symptoms‚” said Gaetsewe‚ adding that the positive cases were isolated.

    “They are now doing well in isolation and will join the bio-safe environment at a later stage if deemed necessary.

    “Since we arrived in Durban‚ our venue and training facility and subsequently the match venues will also adhere to bio-secure regulations that have been set out by the ministry of health and Cricket SA.”

    Gaetsewe said a second round of testing produced negative results and he confirmed there will be another round of testing on Wednesday.

    “The players are currently divided into small groups and they will train in those small groups until we do our next test on January 13.

    “Our camp is a month long so we are going to do a number of serial tests just to make sure we do not miss the number of symptomatic cases that can potentially spread.”

    All matches will be played in KwaZulu-Natal.

    The series opener will be followed by two ODIs on January 23 and 26 at Kingsmead and Pietermaritzburg Oval.

    The three T20s will then follow in uMgungundlovu on January 29 and 31, with the last fixture taking place at Kingsmead on February 3.

    Moreeng is happy with how preparations have gone‚ despite the circumstances‚ with the team having been inactive for more than 10 months.

    “I think for us, as the doctor has highlighted‚ it has been a challenging environment‚” he said.

    “You can call it a new norm for us but what is most important is that we make sure we get an opportunity to play cricket because it has been almost a year since we last played cricket as a team.”

    DURBAN: Cricket South Africa Women’s Under-19 and Women’s National Academy coach, Dinesha Devnarain is pleased with the work the Momentum Proteas players have put in their pre-tour camps and believes that effort has fulfilled the team’s objectives in preparing for their home tour against Pakistan starting in Durban on Wednesday 20 January.

    The Proteas women side have been in camp for the past five days, refining their game ahead of their first competitive international cricket in ten months. The last bit of action the ladies saw was the T20 Women Super League that was held in Cape Town during the month of December 2020 and Devnarain believes this series on home soil is an ideal opportunity for her academy youngsters and those who performed admirably in the T20 tournament to show their performance at the international stage.

    “We were blessed enough to host a lot of camps leading up to this series that has helped our preparations to go well now and hopefully we can have a good showcase of cricket,” says the young mentor at the team’s training base in Kingsmead.

    “We have quite a few of the young academy players here and now It is a great opportunity for them and the players who have done well in the WSL (Women Super League) to take that performance to international cricket. I just hope they go out there with a fearless brand of cricket and hopefully can be match winners for their country, especially with a few of our senior players missing out due to injury.”

    The Pakistan tour includes three One-Day Internationals and three T20 internationals.

    The former Proteas player, is delighted with the matches taking place in her home city of Ethekwini and is hoping to use her knowledge of home conditions to good use and is cautiously optimistic of the team’s chances against the visitors.

    “Luckily, I am from Durban and in terms of acclimatizing I can give the girls few tips here and there. However, that alone will not give us the edge, at the end of the day we have to play a good brand of cricket that will show how far we have come as a team and be cognizant that Pakistan are a very good side that will give us a good run for our money.” said Devnarain.

    The first ODI will be played at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead with the match live on SuperSport from 10h00. The entire Pakistan tour to South Africa will be live on the premier sports channel with exclusive content of the proteas players in the BSE (Bio Secure Environment).

    Full Fixture list:

    DURBAN: Momentum Proteas youngsters Faye Tunnicliffe and Nondumiso Shangase are both hoping to make their mark for South Africa when they take on Pakistan during their home tour starting in Durban next week.

    Hilton Moreeng’s girls will face the Asian side in a three-match One-Day International Series followed by a three-game Twenty20 International sequence, all in BSE (Bio Secure Environment) in the coastal city.

    The matches will be the first for the hosts since their exciting performance at last year’s ICC T20 Women’s Cricket World Cup where they were narrowly beaten by hosts Australia in the semi-finals on March 5 at Sydney.

    The world has changed since then following the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, prompting no cricket for the rest of 2020, apart from the Women’s Super League (WSL) that was held in Cape Town last month.

    Tunnicliffe impressed with the bat and ended as the third-highest run scorer behind established players Sune Luus and Laura Wolvaardt.

    She was rewarded for her form by being named in the squad for the tour. Others that made an impact at WSL 3.0 have also earned national call-ups, amongst them being uncapped quartet - Nobulumko Baneti, Evodia Yekile, Jenay Winster and Khayakazi Mathe.

    All of them will be bidding to carry their form into the Pakistan series, where they will be aiming to make a big impression.

    “Coming into an environment like this is an amazing opportunity to learn,” Western Province batter Tunnicliffe said. “I think now is really a good time for us youngsters to step up and really prove to the older players or the more senior players that once they leave the system then we’ve got their backs and we can sort of fill that gap.

    “We really want to just instil that trust within them and I think that is very important for us as youngsters.”

    The 22-year-old, who has already earned 11 caps for South Africa in limited-overs cricket, says that the rookies have also been learning from the senior pros in the squad.

    “We’re learning from them by just watching and chatting to them here and there, asking them for tips on our own games, whether it’s batting or bowling or even fielding, those small pieces of advice really help.

    “There’s been times in the past where I think nerves would sort of get to us, but now is the time to keep our heads strong on our shoulders and really just take the opportunities that we get. We’re looking forward to it.”

    Shangase too is looking forward to the opportunity to continue her growth on the biggest stage.

    The KwaZulu-Natal spinning all-rounder says the camp in Durban, which began last week, has gone excellently thus far.

    “Training from day one until today has been really good,” she said. “The break (that came because of the virus) was really long and now we cannot wait to get going again. We spent enough time at home over the last few months, but now we just want to play.”

    The 24-year-old is also trying to remain calm ahead of more possible opportunities to play for the Momentum Proteas during the series.

    “I’m just going to try and keep it simple because if we can get the basics right then everything else will fall into place,” she added.

    The series begins with 50-over action and the first ODI that takes place next Wednesday. All the matches during the tour will be broadcast live on SuperSport.

    Momentum Proteas squad for the training camp: Lizelle Lee (North West), Laura Wolvaardt (Western Province), Trisha Chetty (KZN Coastal), Mignon du Preez (Northerns), Shabnim Ismail (KZN Coastal), Sune Luus (Northerns), Ayabonga Khaka (Gauteng), Maria Klaas (North West), Nadine de Klerk (Western Province), Tumi Sekhukhune (North West), Sinalo Jafta (Western Province), Lara Goodall (Western Province), Andrie Steyn (Western Province), Robyn Searle (Gauteng), Nonkululeko Mlaba (KZN Coastal), Faye Tunnicliffe (Western Province), Tazmin Brits (North West), Anneke Bosch (North West), Nondumiso Shangase (KZN Coastal), Nobulumko Baneti (Border), Khayakazi Mathe (Border), Evodia Yekile (North West), Marizanne Kapp (Eastern Province), Jenay Winster (SWD), Kirstie Thompson (Gauteng)

    Proteas Coach Hilton Moreeng said: “I’m excited about this group we have selected, and the players have a great opportunity to continue with the great strides they have made at this level and also opportunities to the young ones.

    “Many in the squad have international experience including our captain Sune who has lead us with composure in the past and hopefully will do likewise on this tour. There are several talented youngsters who show exciting potential and giving some of them an opening will not only increase the squad’s depth but increase competition for places.”
