Pakistan announce 15 members squad for Aisa cup On Wednesday, the name of the 15-member team was announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board. The tournament, which runs from 27 August to 11 September, is to be organized in the UAE.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on August 3 (Wednesday) announced its squad for the upcoming tour of the Netherlands and the 2022 T20 Asia Cup. While the Men in Green will face the Netherlands in a three-match ODI series starting on August 16, they will take on India in their opening encounter of the 2022 Asia Cup.
The top board has announced a balanced squad for both fixtures, with the express pacer Naseem Shah being named in both squads. Batter Salman Ali Agha who toured England in 2021 has also been named for the ODI fixtures against the Netherlands.
“We have only made changes that were necessary. Both the competitions are important for us and, as such, we have picked our best available players in consultation with the captain and head coach,” said chief selector Muhammad Wasim
“Hasan has been given a break from international cricket and he has been replaced by Naseem Shah. He is express fast and can give further impetus to the fast bowling department, which already boasts Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shahnawaz Dahani. Naseem has not played any international white-ball cricket, but he has demonstrated with the red-ball that he is an attacking option with good pace and controlled swing,” he added.
