The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to hold five Women’s T20 League matches during the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as a test run before holding a full event.

The decision was made in a meeting of the PSL General Council, with PCB Management Committee Chairman Najam Sethi in attendance. The franchises of the PSL will be responsible for organizing the matches for the women’s league, which is set to be held in September and October of this year.

This decision was initially announced by former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja, who Sethi has since replaced following a board shake-up. The schedule for the PSL is expected to be announced within the week, as tentative dates have been discussed with the Punjab government to obtain a security clearance.

Ramiz, during his tenure, had greatly favoured Women’s and U-19 cricket. It was assumed that newly-appointed chairman Najam would scrap up the Women’s League, just like the Pakistan Junior League (PJL). However, the only development that has taken in regards is renaming the Women’s League, which will now be called Pakistan Women’s League.
