Pakistan Cricket Board Launches Support Policy for Cricketers During Pregnancy

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday announced its “Parental Support Policy” wherein women cricketers will be allowed to opt for non-playing roles during pregnancy and “be entitled to take 12 months of paid maternity leave” after childbirth.

The aim of the policy is to “motivate champion professional cricketers in their journey to parenthood” and facilitate their return to the game while “balancing their parental responsibilities with the demands of their cricketing career”.
