London, June 29: Promisig batswoman Iram Javed was on Thursday named as a replacement for injured all-rounder Bismah Maroof in the Pakistan squad for the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup. Maroof, who injured herself while diving on the field in the match against England in Leicester on Tuesday, was ruled out of the rest of the World Cup. Maroof scored 10 runs in the first match against South Africa and picked up 1/7 from two overs. She is also Pakistan’s second-most experienced player in One-day Internationals (ODI) and currently leads the Twenty20 International side.

The 25-year old Iram has played only seven ODIs since her debut in 2013. She has scored 37 runs and has taken three wickets with her seam bowling. She last played 50-over cricket for Pakistan in November 2016. Pakistan was been found guilty of maintaining a slow over rate during its ICC Women s World Cup 2017 match against England in Leicester on Tuesday. Richie Richardson of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the sanction after Sana Mir s side was ruled to be one over short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

As per Appendix 3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel there is no financial penalty against the Pakistan players, however, if Pakistan commits a second minor over-rate offence during the event with Sana as captain, then she will be suspended for one match. The charge had been laid by on-field umpires Chris Brown and Jacqueline Williams and reserve umpire S Saikat.
