Former Badminton Player Tania Malick Will Head Women’s Cricket

Former national badminton champion Tania Mallick is head Women’s Cricket in Pakistan. She will assume responsibility on October 1.

Tania graduated from LUMS University with a Master’s degree and has represented Pakistan at the Asian Games in Seoul in 1986, as well as being the national champion in 1987-88. She has also worked in global organizations and for the World Bank’s Women Development Projects.

Since 2010, she has served as vice-president of the Punjab Olympic Association, as well as vice-president of the Punjab Squash Association, and as a member of the Pakistan Olympic Association’s Education and Women’s Commissions

Urooj Mumtaz, who renounced the extra responsibilities in May to focus only on selection matters, has been replaced by Tania.

It will be interesting to see how she manages women’s cricket given the weak domestic structure and prevalant health crisis. Moreover, she will assume charge at a time when Pakistan cricket in general is facing an image crisis due to England and New Zealand withdrawing themselves from touring Pakistan.
