The National Commission on the Status of Women expresses its heartfelt appreciation over the emphatic victory of Women’s Cricket Team of Pakistan which has created history by winning gold medal in the first-ever Asian Games women’s cricket tournament. The win comes as welcome relief at a time for Pakistan when the Nation has been confronting the issues of lawlessness, post floods, poverty, injustice, inflation for the past many years.

 The Commission considers it a precious Eid Gift to the people ofPakistan. The entire Nation is excited and happy and is proud of them. This victory will further build the morale of Pakistani women and will help the women’s game grow in Pakistan. The girls have proved that if fought with calmness of mind, good spirit, passionate efforts and hard work, the women can conquer and excel in any field of life. Women in Pakistan are very strong and talented, if they are encouraged to be involved in sports, they can make it this far.

 The NCSW praises Ms. Bushra Aitzaz Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Women Wing Chairperson for providing her committed and visionary leadership thus inculcating the discipline and fighting spirit in the team which ultimately paved the way for this glorious victory.
