The International Cricket Council (ICC) launched the next phase of the 100% Cricket campaign, with the launch of the 100% Cricket Future Leaders Programme – a mentorship programme for all female future leaders in Cricket as part of their long-term commitment to accelerate the growth of women’s cricket and women in cricket.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan and former captain Sana Mir have joined the programme as mentors.

Under the umbrella of 100% Cricket, 100% Cricket – Future Leaders Programme is designed to support emerging female talent in cricket across administration, coaching and officiating, broadcast, and journalism as well as marketing, digital and technology and events.

The programme is designed to address the low percentage of women in leadership positions in global cricket and build a pipeline of new female leaders in cricket.

Commenting on the programme Greg Barclay, Chairman ICC said: “Cricket is a genuinely inclusive sport for all, but that is not widely reflected in how our game is led globally so it gives me great pleasure to launch the Future Leaders Programme.

“This is a practical approach towards solving the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in our sport to enable us to build a strong pipeline of future female leaders and ultimately inspire more women to take up roles in cricket. 

“The response from the global cricket community has been fantastic as you can see from the mentors who have enthusiastically committed to bring their knowledge and expertise to the programme and I am personally looking forward to being part of it.”
