Pakistan’s renowned cricket presenter, Zainab Abbas has added another feather to her cap after being picked to work with the British Sports channel, Sky Sports.
Ms. Abbas will be the first Pakistani female sports commentator to work with the sports channel.
The 33-year-old took to Twitter to announce that she is beyond thrilled to be making her debut with Sky Sports this summer for their forthcoming tournament “The Hundred.”
Speaking with Geo news, Zainab Abbas told how Sky Sports approached her to work for one of their upcoming tournaments called the Hundred — a league that features faces from across the globe.
Zainab reflected on how making a mark in this male-dominated field was not easy for her. She furthered that technical skills are integral to making it big here, looks only take you so far.
What’s even cooler than this feat is that she’ll be working alongside cricket icons from across the globe. Kevin Pietersen, Darren Sammy, Andrew Flintoff, Tammy Beaumont, Dinesh Karthik, and Stuart Broad are also a part of the team.
