Pakistan’s female cricketer Diana Baig says she plans to help female sports stars of Gilgit-Baltistan in terms of their future.
“I started at the age of 15 to 16 years and I had to struggle a bit,” the fast-bowler said. “I faced difficulties in finding grounds to train. Then I shifted to Islamabad for that.”
“I don’t want the girls from Gilgit to face the problems that I went through. My plan is to help them secure their future.”
She added that she has been staying indoors for the first time in six years. “There I came to realize that I have been facing the same problems today that I did a decade earlier regarding practicing.”
Diana added that she then decided that something had to be done. “Women sports stars who have participated in national and international events came up with a plan to send a proposal to the government of Gilgit-Baltistan on how a secure environment could be provided for female athletes for their sporting activities.”
