ISLAMABAD - Pakistan women cricket players were jubilant while celebrating Pakistan's first ODI victory over Afghanistan saying that this tour would help revive international cricket in the country. Afghanistan is the first team to tour Pakistan after terrorist attack on Sri Lankan team in March 2009. "Pakistan is a cricket-loving nation and after the Afghanistan team tour, others will follow the same," Pakistan women cricket team captain Sana Mir said Thursday. Sana, who was the 'Player of the Tournament' at the 2008 Women's Cricket World Cup qualifiers, and currently ranked 16th in the ICC Women's ODI Bowlers rankings, also said there was an urgent need of an international women's coach for the women's cricket team. "A woman can understand other woman better than a man," she said. She hailed awarding central contracts as, according to her, it would help women cricket blossom. "Twenty-20 Pentangular Women Cricket Tournament is the result of PCB efforts and commitment to women games. She said female cricketers needed encouragement and reward for their hard work. Another Pakistan women player Nain Abidi sought government support for the promotion of women cricket in the country demanding that the matches should be telecast so as to promote the game. She said women cricketers were no less than men as they brought the first Asian Games gold medal from China last year. "It was due to our hard work and devotion to the game. Women's cricket over the years has been transformed into a specialised sport, which requires full time commitment," she said.
