A newfangled women’s cricket tournament kicks off this week in the UAE as the sport looks to spread its wings globally. The FairBreak Invitational, featuring England captain Heather Knight, West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor and Pakistan’s Sana Mir, commences on Wednesday, with a growing chorus for better pay for women cricketers. Women’s cricket has emerged as a crowd puller in recent years with international finals played in front of full houses, including a record 86,000-plus crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the T20 World Cup decider in March 2020.
