Sachin Tendulkar has asked support for women’s cricket which will help cricket in general. The ICC women’s world Championship is scheduled to be held from 26th June to 23rd July. Top four teams in the ICC World Cup qualifiers will enter into ths big event.
“The inclusion of Thailand in World Cup cricket may be a surprise for some of you but it is a reality! Thailand will be bidding to feature in this year’s ICC Women’s World Cup when it will play in the Qualifiers in Colombo next week,” Sachin Tendulkar wrote in a column for the ICC.
“Subsequently, the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 in the United Kingdom in June-July will see top notch cricket being played by some of the finest and exemplary women cricketers from across the world,” Sachin Tendulkar added.
“They have spawned interest in young girls to play the sport and also helping generate a larger following for the game at a time when the game is seeking to expand its footprint globally and become relevant in non-cricket playing countries,” Sachin Tendulkar said.
“I wish all the teams the very best for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers and would urge all of you to wholeheartedly support women’s cricket, for the sake of cricket.”
If women’s cricket is given equal support as to men, it will boost cricket in general and make the cricket more competitive with top players fighting to represent their countries at big stage.
