Zainab is the first female presenter from Pakistan to be taking the World Cup stage, having previously covered a number of local sporting events and continues to be a fixture on local sports talk shows.
In a country like Pakistan, where women being the face of sports is a rare sight, Zainab’s achievement is a welcome news. She was also recently awarded the ‘Best Female Sports Journalist’ at the Pakistan Sports Awards.
