Malala encourages girls to try cricket

Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai encourages girls to pick up a cricket bat and ball, to stop thinking and just try it.

Malala, known for her activism for women empowerment and education, urged young women to believe in themselves.

In a recent interview, she stated that women should never be discouraged from playing sports on the basis of their gender.

She said women sports players send a positive message of encouragement; one’s gender shouldn’t prevent one from participating in sports.

“Even today, when we see women cricket players playing in this stadium, they are sending a message to all girls out there that they can be in sports, they can be players, they can play any sport they want,” Malala says in the video.

She added that women are changing history everywhere, including in sports.

Took to her Instagram, she posted about loving to play cricket herself.
