PCB warning for Sana Mir

ESPNcricinfo staff

The Pakistan Cricket Board has warned the captain of the women's national team Sana Mir for violating the board's rules after she reportedly gave an unauthorised interview a few days ago. According to a report in the Express Tribune Mir had spoken about the need for women coaches for the national team.

PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar confirmed Mir had been cautioned over the breach. "Sana Mir was only issued a warning by the board and not really a showcause notice as is being said by several sources," he told the Dawn. "It is against the rules for any contractual player to speak to the media without prior permission from the board."

The PCB awarded central contracts to its women cricketers in May which binds them to the board's code of conduct.

Mir, 25, who has played 40 ODIs and led Pakistan to the Asian Games triumph in 2010, is the first woman cricketer to have been warned over discipline issues ever since the PCB introduced central contracts.

    Indeed, controvercial statements do not help where captains are often subject to random questions/statements facing the media and slip of the tongue may not stop there - here there is need for training, particularly for the new and those not very comfortable before the camera, yet they they should enjoy some leeway in simple matters with some guidelines and be encouraged to speak and improve instead of running to the dad each time whether they can buy a loli pop.

    Given the way teams are selected and the way players need to loath and entertain coaches, managers and selectors in PCB to be in the reckoning, I wonder if all is well in women's cricket in Pak. A professional and accountable set up is indeed a must to wipe out exploitation of players and to save their futures.

    If she has violated the contract, she deserves a warning. Its stupid to criticize the PCB for this.

    @bharath74: What's sensational about it? Everyone knows you can't say a single word without PCB consent.

    PCB is a JOKE, they bring shame to the Nation of Our great Country. Next the player will have to ask the permission of the Board to go to the toilet.
