Karachi: A female Pakistani coach will guide Iran’s young women cricketers in their preparations for the Under-19 Women’s Championship later this year, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said.

The Iranian team will compete in the Asian Cricket Council’s Under-19 championship in Singapore from October 4-14.

“Hajira Sarwar will help Iran’s Under-19 team on the request of Iran Cricket Federation,” The Daily Times quoted a PCB statement, as saying.

Teams from Bhutan, China, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nepal, Oman, Qatar, Singapore, Thailand and United Arab Emirates will also compete in the event.

Hajira will be the second Pakistani coach to help Iran’s woman cricketers after Shamsa Hashmi trained them a few years ago.
