According to sources, the PCB is looking to include at least 10 foreign cricketers in the teams for the three matches scheduled on 8th, 10th, and 11th March at Pindi Cricket Stadium.
It has been reported that the PCB has almost finalized signing players from England, South Africa, Ireland, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand for these matches. Several prominent players, including Tammy Beaumont, Danni Wyatt, and Lauren Winfield-Hill, are expected to play for England.
Other international players like Laura Wolvaardt from South Africa, Laura Delaney from Ireland, Jahanara Alam from Bangladesh, Chamari Athapaththu from Sri Lanka, and Lea Tahuhu from New Zealand are also likely to feature in these exhibition games.
