The Emirates Cricket Board will host a women's Twenty20 tournament by the end of this month.
"This is part of our plans to attract women into the game at the grass-root level. We want to create as much opportunities for the women to play the game," Mazhar Khan, the administrator of the ECB, said. "This tournament will be held as soon as the school examinations get over. This event will be open for all schools, clubs and cricket academies."

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
