The Commonwealth Games Federation was met with much criticism for preventing Maroof’s daughter and mother from traveling with the cricket player.
However, the PCB confirmed that the federation had changed its position on the matter.
The captain of the Pakistani women’s team Bismah Maroof and her family will be housed in the Commonwealth Games village in Birmingham England in July so she can be with her daughter during the event, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Tuesday.
The Commonwealth Games Federation was criticized after the media said that Maroof’s daughter had been refused accreditation that would force the Pakistani batter to remain outside the Games village during the tournament.
The PCB confirmed that such a situation had been avoided and appointed an 18-member team under Maroof for a three-series in Belfast followed by the Games.
