    [PICTURES] Pakistan Under-19 team tour of Bangladesh postponed due to COVID-19 concerns [Post#54]

    Pakistan Under-19 team is set to visit Bangladesh in April this year for a four-dayer and a five-match one-day series. The series is scheduled to start on May 11 with the lone four-day game.

    The Pakistan youths will arrive in Bangladesh in the last week of April after which they will stay quarantine. During the quarantine period, they will have the opportunity to practice at limited scale.

    Abu Emam Mohammad Kawsar, the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) national game development manager confirmed the Pakistan's tour in Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh youths however will be in Noida, India, during when Pakistan will arrive in Bangladesh. In Noida, Bangladesh Under-19team is slated to play a solitary four-day game and a five-match one-day series against Afghanistan. They will return to the country on May 5.

    Bangladesh's departure from the country for Noida was deferred to 10 days. The young Tigers now leave the country on March 20, subject to the clearance of Afghanistan.

    India's Noida is the adopted home venue for Afghanistan team at this moment. But the strict quarantine rule of India basically forced them to defer the schedule of the series against Bangladesh.

    Since the series is deferred, the two boards are in discussion now to cut the four-dayer game and play only five-match one-day series.

    Meanwhile, the BCB mulls to organize a tri-nation one-day series including the Under-19 team of India and Afghanistan in November as part of the preparation for Under-19 World Cup.

    The Under-19 team's camp currently is going on with 22 cricketers at Mirpur.

    Pakistan U19 to tour Bangladesh next month

    • Sylhet to stage four-day and three one-day matches, Dhaka to host last two 50-over matches; players born or after 1 September 2022 selected for the tour

    • “The tour provides a wonderful grooming opportunity for the players against one of the most formidable U19 sides at present which won the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup last year,” says head coach Ijaz Ahmed

    Lahore, 27 March 2021:

    Pakistan U19 cricket team will tour Bangladesh next month to play a four-day and five 50-over matches against the side that won the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa last year. As per the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2022 age criteria, players born or after 1 September 2002 have been selected.

    The tour has been arranged to provide further exposure to Pakistan cricket’s future stars following an extensive camp at the start of the year at the National High Performance Centre in Lahore. The tour will also help prepare the players for next year’s ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in the West Indies.

    Prior to the 12 April departure, the team will play two 50-over practice matches besides a three-day match during a 10-day long camp that will run in Lahore from 2-11 April.

    The 20-member squad has been chosen by the national juniors’ selection committee in consultation with the Pakistan U19 head coach.

    Pakistan U19 squad for Bangladesh tour:

    Batsmen – Abbas Ali, Abdul Faseeh, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Fahad Munir, Maaz Sadaqat, Mohammad Irfan Niazi, Mohammad Shehzad, Qasim Akram and Rizwan Mehmood

    Wicketkeepers – Haseebullah and Raza-ul-Mustafa

    Spinners – Aaliyan Mehmood, Ali Asfand, Arham Nawab and Faisal Akram

    Fast bowlers – Ahmed Khan, Asim Ali, Muneeb Wasif, Tahir Hussain and Zeeshan Zameer

    Players Support Personnel – Ijaz Ahmed (head coach and team manager), Imranullah (trainer), Rao Iftikhar (bowling coach), Mohtashim Rasheed (fielding coach), Hafiz Naeem (physiotherapist)

    Pakistan U19 head coach Ijaz Ahmed: “The tour provides a wonderful grooming opportunity for the players against one of the most formidable U19 sides at present which won the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup last year. We have a talented bunch of players and a number of them have proven their worth already at the domestic circuit in the recently concluded season.

    “The squad also includes players like Abdul Wahid, Qasim Akram, Fahad Munir, Mohammad Irfan Niazi, Mohammad Shehzad and Tahir Hussain who represented Pakistan U19 in the World Cup, the tour will help further develop the skills of these players as they are our future. The tour will be a challenging one for us and one that will hold these players in good stead in this developmental stage of their careers. The series will also help us identify the potential players that we will field in next year’s World Cup in the West Indies.”

    Six players who were part of the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2020 in South Africa have been retained in the squad. They are: Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Fahad Munir, Qasim Akram, Mohammad Irfan Niazi, Mohammad Shehzad and Tahir Hussain.

    Opener Abdul Wahid represented Balochistan 1st XI in the recently-concluded domestic season, batting all-rounder Qasim was one of the star performers for Central Punjab who was subsequently selected by Karachi Kings for the HBL Pakistan Super League 6, and top-order batsman Mohammad Irfan Niazi represented Central Punjab 1st XI in the National T20 Cup (1st XI) that was played in Multan and Rawalpindi.

    The players and management will be tested for Covid-19 before entering the camp, and those returning negative tests will move into a bio-secure for the team that will be set-up in Lahore. The players and team management will be vaccinated for Covid-19 on 8 April.

    Tour schedule:

    12 April – Departure for Dhaka
    16-18 April – Training, Sylhet
    19-22 April – Four-day match; SICS, Sylhet
    26 April – 1st 50-over match; SICS, Sylhet
    28 April – 2nd 50-over match; SICS, Sylhet
    30 April – 3rd 50-over match; SICS, Sylhet
    3 May – 4th 50-over match; SBNCS, Dhaka
    5 May – 5th 50-over match; SBNCS, Dhaka

    Fahad Munir, lol. On top of being overage Munir has to be one of the most garbage, limited players I’ve ever seen.

    And how on Earth are the likes of Qasim Akram and Irfan Niazi still under 19?

    This whole age fudging thing is getting embarrassing.

    I think Ghazi Ghouri deserved a place as wk but selection on the whole looks decent. Looking forward to see Batsmen Abdul Faseeh especially. Out of bowlers Ahmed Khan is a great young talent who has come through the system. Faisal Akram is the x factor no doubt

    He is currently 18 but will be 19 next month, same is the case with Mohammad Hurraira. U19 WC is scheduled for 2022 in WI which has no final dates yet but is expected to happen around Mar-April time. As per my understanding the age of players has to be under 19 few months before (I guess its September 1st as the cut off) the WC. Both Hurraira and Mubashir will be 19 years and few days old before the cut off and thus wont be eligible for the U19 WC. If a player goes over 19 after that cut off than he is eligible.

    So it’s understandable if they are not being considered and players who will be in the pool of players for the U19-WC 2022 are being considered.

    From the little bit I saw of Zeeshan Zamir in the T10, he looks a real talent. What we desperately need is young batsman that have power and spinners that spin the ball.

    Decent variety in the spin bowling attack though with 2 off spinners, 1 SLA and one wrist spinner (Chinamen). Both the offies did well in domestic U19 level and Aaliyan looked decent in his appearance for Sindh as well. Faisal Akram was reasonably impressive in the recent Pak camp too. So hopefully atleast couple them can keep on developing.

    It will be a tough tour as BD U19 team won the last WC, will probably have atleast few players from last batch and they will also have advantage of home conditions. Good for preparation and testing out players.

    As I have said before FA will do well to make into FC. Everything is against him but he deserves his selection. The template set by Imad has done a lot of damage to PK spin bowling and we desperately need spinners that to spin the ball.

    Ah, that makes sense. Quite unfortunate that both will miss out. Mubbasir looked incredible in his opening FC game.

    Appreciate the clarification.

    Lahore, 2 April 2021: The training camp for the Pakistan U19 tour of Bangladesh began today at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore with the players taking part in the three-hour long session.

    After warm-up, the players went through fielding and net practice session under the supervision of head coach Ijaz Ahmed. Bowling coach Rao Iftikhar worked with the fast bowlers while spin bowling consultant Mushtaq Ahmed worked with the spinners.

    Mushtaq, who also worked in the camp held for U19 players at the start of the year at the National High Performance Centre, will be part of the 10-day camp which will conclude on 11th April when the final 17-member squad files out to Dhaka for the one four-day and five 50-over matches.

    Head Coach Pakistan U19 Ijaz Ahmed: “Today was the first day of the camp, the players have assembled with us after a couple of months so today we took updates on their fitness and assessed their form. I am really excited with the talent in this group, the tour of Bangladesh is an excellent opportunity for us in our endeavour of grooming these players not only for next year’s ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup but also well beyond that as these are the players that are going to serve Pakistan cricket for the next decade and beyond.

    “I am delighted to have Mushtaq Ahmed work with us once again, he is a proven coach and has worked around the world with some of the leading spin bowlers. His presence will be a huge motivation for the spinners and I am sure they will learn a great deal with him. Rao Iftikhar and the rest of the support staff are all working towards one single goal which is the development and grooming of the players and I am confident we will see great results in the future as this is the cream of the U19 talent from across the country.”

    The squad will play a three-day practice match from Sunday following their second practice session tomorrow (Saturday). Two 50-over matches will also be held during the camp, the squad will be trimmed to 17-players during the camp.

    Tour schedule:

    Spin Bowling Consultant Mushtaq Ahmed feels Bangladesh-bound Pakistan U19 spinners are full of potential and have the talent to do big things for the country in the years ahead.

    He is working with the spinners in the 10-day training camp which is in progress at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

    Mushtaq, who also worked in the camp held for U19 players at the start of the year at the National High Performance Centre, will work with the teenage spinners until 11 April, when the final 17-member squad flies out to Dhaka for the one four-day and five 50-over matches.

    Following an impressive 2020-21 domestic season, Aaliyan Mehmood, Ali Asfand, Arham Nawab and Faisal Akram received call-ups in the 20-player probable squad and are honing their skills under the guidance of Mushtaq, whose leg-spin brought him 346 international wickets from 1989 till 2003.

    The four players also have the company of all-rounders Qasim Akram and Fahad Munir, who featured in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa last year.

    Mushtaq Ahmed: “It is always a real pleasure to work with youngsters. I think this bunch is full of potential and has a bright future. At this stage of their careers, it is important for them to work develop control. The Bangladesh tour will provide them an opportunity of playing a four-day match while I will also work with them in the three-day practice match that starts tomorrow.

    “The idea is to teach them the basics of both red and white ball cricket and the art of taking wickets. Among this lot, Faisal Akram is hugely promising and has great variations as a left-arm wrist spinner. Arham, Ali and Aaliyan are also very keen on making full use of this opportunity and my job is to impart the skills I learned as a player and coach in my career.

    “With these spinners, our future is bright indeed and it is important that they are groomed and give constant exposure. Spinners need to bowl long spells in nets and in matches. The more they bowl, the better they get.”

    The squad will play a three-day practice match from Sunday, which will be followed by two 50-over matches.

    Pakistan U19 squad for training camp –Bangladesh tour:

    Batsmen – Abbas Ali, Abdul Faseeh, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Fahad Munir, Maaz Sadaqat, Mohammad Irfan Niazi, Mohammad Shehzad, Qasim Akram and Rizwan Mehmood

    Wicketkeepers – Haseebullah and Raza-ul-Mustafa

    Spinners – Aaliyan Mehmood, Ali Asfand, Arham Nawab and Faisal Akram

    Fast bowlers – Ahmed Khan, Asim Ali, Muneeb Wasif, Tahir Hussain and Zeeshan Zameer

    The series between Bangladesh Under-19 team and their Pakistani counterparts, which is scheduled to take place from April 19 to May 5, looks highly unlikely as the COVID-19 infection rate in the country is increasing alarmingly, said Bangladesh Cricket Board officials on Sunday.

    Pakistan Under-19 team is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on April 12 to play a four-day game and four 50-over matches.

    But after the Bangladesh government’s decision to impose a nationwide lockdown from today to April 11, BCB game development committee chairman Khaled Mahmud thinks the chances of this series taking place in the current circumstance is very low.

    ‘Chances are very low. But still before cancelling it both the boards will discuss the matter. But I think it is highly unlikely at this moment,’ the former Bangladesh captain told New Age.

    BCB game development department manager AEM Kawser told New Age that the board is continuing with its preparation, but he is not too optimistic about the series.

    ‘The way we hold cricket series these days is by maintaining the global standard of health safety. We create a bio-secure bubble where the transport, hotel, grounds staff all are taken inside including the players’ and support staff,’ said Kawser.

    ‘The players will come and will be kept in isolation until they come out negative in multiple tests. But despite everything, it is highly unlikely. The lockdown is up to 11th and they are coming on 12th. Let’s see what both the boards decide but at this moment the series seems highly unlikely,’ added Kawser.

    Pakistan U19 cricket team will now tour Bangladesh from Saturday 17 April instead of the original 11 April schedule. The tour has been delayed by six days due to the ongoing lockdown in Bangladesh.

    Over the course of the last two days, the Pakistan Cricket Board and Bangladesh Cricket Board worked out an alternate schedule for the tour to ensure the tour takes place in a safe and secure environment (bio-secure bubble). There has been no change in the number of matches.

    Pakistan U19 and Bangladesh U19 will play a four-day match in Sylhet from 23 April, followed by a series of five 50-over matches. The first three 50-over matches will be played in Sylhet followed by the last two matches in Dhaka.

    At the conclusion of the tour, Pakistan U19 will embark on their return journey on 10 May.
    Meanwhile, the final 17-member squad for the tour will be announced shortly. The squad will continue to train in Lahore till their departure. From 12 April, the camp that is presently taking place at the Gaddafi Stadium, will be shifted to the National High Performance Centre.

    Qasim Akram appointed Pakistan U19 captain

    Promising batting all-rounder Qasim Akram has been appointed Pakistan U19 captain for this month’s tour of Bangladesh that include a four-day game and five 50-over fixtures in Sylhet and Dhaka.

    The 18-year-old from Lahore was identified as one of the players to watch-out for by head coach Ijaz Ahmed at last year’s ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in South Africa where he scored 93 runs at 46.50 and took three wickets at 31.

    Qasim lived up to his potential in the 2020-21 domestic season as he made a big impression in all three formats for Central Punjab. Qasim played eight first-class, 12 List A and 10 T20 matches in the season and later made it to the Karachi Kings squad for the HBL Pakistan Super League 6 season as an emerging player.

    The 50-over, List A format (Pakistan Cup) was where Qasim thrived the most. In 12 games for Central Punjab, Qasim scored 462 runs at 57.75 with the help of one century and three half-centuries at an impressive 101.31 strike-rate.

    He also collected six wickets with his off-break bowling. In the four-day first-class format (Quaid-e-Azam Trophy), Qasim scored 389 runs in 14 innings with the best of 79 runs at 35.36, his tally of runs included three half-centuries. Qasim also collected his maiden first-class five wicket-haul in his 13-wicket season tally.

    In the National T20 Cup, Qasim scored 72 runs in six innings and collected three wickets.

    Qasim Akram: “It is a big honour for me to lead Pakistan U19, the last one year has been a good one for me and I am thankful to the team management and selectors who have reposed their confidence in me. Over the course of the last 12 or so months, I have learned a great deal during the hugely competitive domestic season where I represented Central Punjab.

    “My aim would be to guide the team to the best of my ability and to pass on the experiences of my maiden domestic season during the tour as we build towards next year’s ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in the West Indies where we would aim to better our semi-final performance of last year’s edition in South Africa.

    “This tour will help us identify the players that will form the core of the World Cup side, the tour will also provide a great exposure to the squad against the reigning world champions and will help us in our development for the years ahead.”

    Meanwhile, the selectors have trimmed the 20-player squad to a 17-member party. Fast bowler Asim Ali, off-spinner Arham Nawab and batsman Rizwan Mehmood, have failed to make the cut but they will continue to train with the squad till the side’s departure for Dhaka on 17 April.

    The pre-tour training camp, which is currently taking place at the Gaddafi Stadium, will move to the National High Performance Centre on 12 April.

    Pakistan U19 team for Bangladesh tour:

    Qasim Akram (captain) (Central Punjab), Abbas Ali (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Abdul Faseeh (Northern), Abdul Wahid Bangalzai (Balochistan), Aaliyan Mehmood (Sindh), Ahmed Khan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Ali Asfand (Central Punjab), Fahad Munir (Central Punjab), Faisal Akram (Southern Punjab), Haseebullah (wicketkeeper) (Balochistan), Maaz Sadaqat (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Mohammad Irfan Niazi (Central Punjab), Mohammad Shehzad (Southern Punjab), Muneeb Wasif (Central Punjab), Raza-ul-Mustafa (wicketkeeper) (Northern), Tahir Hussain (Southern Punjab) and Zeeshan Zameer (Sindh)

    Players Support Personnel – Ijaz Ahmed (head coach and team manager), Imranullah (trainer), Rao Iftikhar (bowling coach), Mohtashim Rasheed (fielding coach), Hafiz Naeem (physiotherapist), Col (retd) Safdar Saeed (security manager), Faisal Rai (analyst) and Emmad Ahmed Hameed (media manager).

    Tour schedule:

    17 April – Departure for Dhaka
    23-26 April – Four-day match; SICS, Sylhet

    Pakistan U19’s tour to Bangladesh has been called-off due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in Bangladesh which has caused the extension of a nationwide lockdown in the country.

    The Pakistan U19 team was originally scheduled to fly out to Dhaka from Lahore on 11 April for the one four-day and five 50-over matches.

    After the Bangladesh government announced a nationwide lockdown at the beginning of the month, the departure of the team was rescheduled for Saturday 17 April.

    However, since the Covid-19 situation in Bangladesh has not improved, the lockdown has been further extended by the Bangladesh Government, causing an indefinite postponement of Pakistan U19’s tour.

    Both cricket boards will now look for a new window for the tour when the situation improves in Bangladesh, details of which will be shared in due course.

    Pakistan U19’s ongoing training camp taking place at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore has now concluded.
