The Emirates Hawks will lock horns with the UAE Falcons in a one-off Women's All Star T10 game at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.
The match will be played before the D10 Emirates League final, and its objective is to develop and promote women's cricket in the country. Khalid Al Zarooni, vice-chairman of the Emirates Cricket Board, expressed his excitement at including the women's cricketers in the D10 Emirates League.
“On behalf of the Board I am very happy to announce the second edition of our Domestic 10-over tournament, the Emirates D10, and we are extremely excited to bring our talented women’s players into our flagship tournament,” Khalid Al Zarooni said.
The exhibition match is an initiative by Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and ITW Consulting. Al Zarooni believes the idea has been well received by one and all.
“It is of great importance that such an initiative, aimed at profiling and developing our players and our game, has been well received and supported, and we extend our appreciation to ITW Consulting for their ongoing commitment to the growth of our domestic game," Khalid Al Zarooni added.
The D10 & D20 Emirates Leagues will serve as a platform for selecting players in the national team matches. The governing body is looking to attract more female cricketers from across the country to take up the sport.
