Pakistan’s Asia Cup 2022 and Netherlands ODI squads announced
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed on Wednesday the dates for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League against the Netherlands and the ACC T20 Asia Cup. From August 16 to 21, the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will play a one-day international series. As a replacement for Hasan Ali, fast bowler Naseem Shah has been picked for both teams, and Salman Ali Agha, who played in the ODI series against England in 2021, has been brought back. Shaheen Shah Afridi’s recovery will be overseen by the team trainer and physiotherapist Shaheen Shah Afridi.
They will also decide when he can return to international cricket. The ACC T20 Asia Cup team for the Netherlands doesn’t have five players from the ODI team. Iftikhar Ahmed, Usman Qadir, and Asif Ali will join the Pakistani cricket team in place of Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq. The PCB’s chief selector, Muhammad Wasim, said that only “essential” changes have been made.
“Our captain and head coach helped us choose our best players because both competitions are important to us,” he said.
From August 6–11, the players will be in Lahore, Pakistan, for a training camp and two 50-over games. The team will leave for Amsterdam early in the morning on Friday, August 12. The ACC T20 Asia Cup team will arrive in Dubai on August 22. This is where T20I players will join the team.
