Maroof last featured for Pakistan during the T20 World Cup in Australia last year. She pulled out of the tours of South Africa and Zimbabwe earlier this year owing to “family reasons”, with Javeria Khan stepping in as captain.

As per the ESPNCricinfo, the PCB’s central contracts for its women cricketers does not have any specific clauses covering the maternity leaves but the board, taking this as an opportunity, is now likely to amend the contracts.

Maroof has represented Pakistan in 108 ODIs and the same number of T20Is since making her debut in 2006.
