Former badminton player will replace Urooz Mumtaz, who resigned in May

The PCB has roped in Tania Mallick, a member of the Pakistan Olympics Association, to head their women’s cricket wing. The position was vacant since May this year after Urooj Mumtaz – who was holding multiple jobs in PCB – relinquished the main role, allowing PCB to hire a full-time head.

Tania, 52, an alumnus of Lahore University of Management Sciences and a former badminton player, represented Pakistan at the Seoul Asian Games 1986. She became the national champion in the 1987-88 season. She has been vice-president of the Punjab Olympic Association since 2010, is currently vice-president of the Punjab Squash Association, and is also serving as a member of the Pakistan Olympic Association’s Education and Women’s Commissions.

The PCB has taken over three months to find a candidate for the post, with the first lot of candidates who applied not making much of an impression in the initial interviews. The board had to invite more candidates to come forward, and extended the deadline to do so, having begun their search for a replacement immediately after Mumtaz left.
