The PCB signed the talented 21-year-old legspinner Tuba Hassan to his first central contract for the 2022–23 season, which became effective on Friday (July 1).
In the recently concluded T20I series against Sri Lanka, Hassan made her debut for Pakistan and made an immediate impact after taking 3 for just 8. She won the ICC Women’s Player of the Month award for May 2022 after taking five wickets in the series.
“I am absolutely thrilled and excited at being given the prestigious central contract for the first time. Hard work has slowly started to pay off, but this is just the beginning. My focus remains on producing strong performances and contributing in my team’s success, rest I am sure will take care of itself as we have seen in this case,” Hassan said.
