PCB insults women’s cricketers

July 17, 2017 | By

Pakistan Cricket Board has hundreds of employees, dozens of departments and two chairmen but its working always raises questions.

The latest of many such bloopers was witnessed on Monday when the national women’s team returned after another abysmal showing in the World Cup.

Led by the non-budging Sana Mir, Pakistan team lost all its seven matches. It brought their losing streak to 14 since winning a game in the 2009 World Cup.

One of PCB’s two chairman Shaharyar Khan came down very hard on team’s performance and termed it “pathetic” and promised an appraisal in the coming day.

Maybe that anger or what else, the team returned like orphans, true to the adage that “a victory has many fathers, but a defeat is an orphan.” No one from the PCB came to the airport to receive the disgruntled players.

“It was shameful,” said one player who doesn’t want to be named, fearing expulsion from the team. “It was like no lift from the PCB and all the players felt it badly.”

While most of the players went on car with their families, Nashra Sandhu was left to ride his father’s motorbike and was seen sitting behind her father and a sister, not much space on the bike.

The footage became viral on social media, with mixed hilarious and sad comments. Some aptly termed it “an insulting behaviour by the PCB.”
