Former India cricketer Saba Karim says women’s cricket needs a more professional approach and a completely different plan from men’s cricket to develop faster. The Indian women’s team is currently on a tour of England under the captaincy of Mithali Raj. After this, the team has to go on a tour of Australia in September this year.

Former Indian women’s cricket head Karim told Cricinfo that it is a good start, but there is still a need for a solid plan and a different plan than the men’s team so that we can take it fast. I believe we need to be more professional and have a different plan for the development of women’s cricket than men’s cricket.

There should be a separate plan, a creative plan with a lot of outreach programs, he said. Karim said that Mithali, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, and Jhulan Goswami may have made a name for themselves in international cricket but still many girls in India are not opting for the sport. He said that still, many girls in India are not playing cricket. One has to ensure that their path remains unobstructed from entering the system till the time they exit.
