Lahore, 25 October 2019: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will live-stream all five women’s internationals between Pakistan and Bangladesh, which gets under way from Saturday, on its YouTybe channel.

It will be an eight-camera coverage, with commentary panel including former internationals Mujahid Jamshed and Yasir Hameed (T20Is only) and experienced voices of Hassan Cheema, Mohammad Salman, Tariq Saeed, Raja Asad Ali Khan and Shamsa Hashmi.

The decision to live-stream the matches has been made to take cricket to wider audience, which, in turn, will enhance the profile of women’s cricket and help in the promotion and growth of the game.
