Sania Iqbal will be replaced by Diana Baig in Pakistan women’s World T20 squad, after she suffered a fracture in her right thumb during a training camp in Karachi.
The decision, made by the Women’s National Selection Committee, was approved by PCB Chairman Shaharyar Mohammad Khan.
Baig is a 20-year-old right arm pacer, who has played just one ODI and one T20I to date.
Pakistan women open their World T20 campaign with a match against West Indies women on March 16.
