For the first time in history, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed a female director on its board and she is ‘Alia Zafar’.

According to the details, Alia Zafar has become the first female to be appointed as an independent member of the Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

the Human resources executive Alia Zafar has been included among four new PCB directors. The others are finance executive Javed Qureshi,  Asim Wajid Jawad, and corporate executive Arif Saeed.

It is pertinent to mention here that the PCB’s new constitution makes it mandatory to include at least one woman among four independent directors on its board of governors.

In this regard, the PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said “I welcome the newly-appointed independent members, especially Ms Alia Zafar, the first female independent member, which is a giant step forward in enhancing the PCB’s governance structure.”

The revamped structure of the PCB has resulted in only six provincial teams, Balochistan, Central Punjab, Southern Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Northern — competing in premier first-class cricket tournaments. The territorial regions of each of the six cricket associations are based on the bifurcation of each province in the country, and the PCB will fund them with the help of a principal sponsor approved for an initial period of up to five years.
