    [VIDEOS/PICTURES] Pakistan's tour of the Netherlands (2022)

    Pakistan and Netherlands will play their inaugural bilateral ODI series in August when Rotterdam will host the three ICC Menís Cricket World Cup Super League matches on 16, 18 and 21. The two sides have previously met in the ICC Menís Cricket World Cups 1996 and 2003, and the ICC Champions Trophy 2002 with Pakistan winning the three matches.

    The three Super League ODIs were earlier planned in July 2020, but had to be postponed following the Covid-19 outbreak.

    PCB Director Ė International Zakir Khan: ďWe are pleased that with the support of the Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond (KNCB), we have been able to reschedule the series, which is important to the growth and development of cricket in Netherlands as well as to the two teamsí chances of progressing directly to the 2023 World Cup.

    ďOur menís national cricket team had an excellent 2021-22 season and I am confident they will build on the momentum to entertain expat Pakistanis and the Dutch spectators with good cricket. This series will also help KNCB attract new and young audiences towards the game.Ē

    Series schedule:

    16 Aug Ė 1st ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam
    18 Aug Ė 2nd ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam

    Lahore, 3 August 2022: Pakistan today announced its 16-player squad for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League fixtures against the Netherlands from 16-21 August and a 15-member side for the ACC T20 Asia Cup, which will be played in the United Arab Emirates from 27 August to 11 September.

    Fast bowler Naseem Shah has been named in both the squads in place of Hasan Ali, while Salman Ali Agha, who toured England in 2021 for the ODIs, has been recalled. Shaheen Shah Afridi has been retained in the ODI and T20I squads, and his rehabilitation programme will be overseen by the team trainer and physiotherapist, who will also decide on his return to international cricket.

    There will be five changes from the Netherlands ODI squad to the ACC T20 Asia Cup side. Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Haris, Salman Ali Agha and Zahid Mehmood will be replaced by Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed and Usman Qadir.

    Squad:

    Pakistan squad for Netherlands ODIs - Babar Azam (captain) (Central Punjab), Shadab Khan (vice-captain) (Northern), Abdullah Shafique (Balochistan), Fakhar Zaman (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Haris Rauf (Northern), Imam-ul-Haq (Balochistan), Khushdil Shah (Southern Punjab), Mohammad Haris (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Mohammad Nawaz (Northern), Mohammad Rizwan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Mohammad Wasim Jnr (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Naseem Shah (Southern Punjab), Salman Ali Agha (Southern Punjab), Shaheen Shah Afridi (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Shahnawaz Dahani (Sindh) and Zahid Mehmood (Sindh)

    Player Support Personnel: Mansoor Rana (manager), Saqlain Mushtaq (head coach), Shahid Aslam (assistant to head coach), Mohammad Yousuf (batting coach), Shaun Tait (bowling coach), Drikus Simmon (trainer/strength & conditioning coach), Cliffe Deacon (physiotherapist), Abdul Majeed (fielding coach), Ibrahim Badees (media and digital manager), Lt Col (retd) Asif Mahmood (team security manager), Talha Ejaz (team analyst), Malang Ali (team masseur) and Dr Najeebullah Soomro (team doctor). Col Muhammad Imran will replace Lt Col Asif Mahmood as team security manager for the ACC T20I Asia Cup.

    Chief selector Muhammad Wasim: “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.

    “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.

    “Salman Ali Agha has been recalled to the ODI side after he performed well in the past two Pakistan Cup tournaments, averaging 40.33 and 48.8, respectively. He also gives Babar Azam an additional bowling option.”

    The training camp for the players will be held in Lahore from 6-11 August, during which they will also play two 50-over matches. The side will depart for Amsterdam in the wee hours of Friday, 12 August. T20I players will join the squad in Dubai for the ACC T20 Asia Cup on 22 August.

    Schedule:

    vs Netherlands

    16 Aug – 1st ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam

    18 Aug – 2nd ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam

    21 Aug – 3rd ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam

    Zahid Mehmood is still a baffling selection to me. Don't feel he is a good bowler. No Iftikhar Ahmed in ODIs is also surprising.

    Naseem Shah in ODIs is a gamble considering he has only played 4 List-A matches. But I guess if you are going to debut him in this format, it might as well be against Netherlands. In my opinion though Dahani should be given a chance in-place of Hasan Ali in the starting line-up.

    Salman Ali Agha is a poor cricketer

    He looked like headless chicken whenever he has played in PSL. Kamran Ghulam is much better


    Why is Shan Masood be continuously be ignored?

    Because Mohammad Wasim is obsessed with the idea of people remembering him as the guy who unearthed so much new talent. Years from now when people ask him what he did as chief-selector he wants to have enough players he can point towards, whom he provided with their first break. Eventhough many of them would have been selected anyway by any other chief-selector.

    Shan Masood does not fit that description sadly. Eventhough he considerably improved as a limited-overs batter in the last PSL and this year's Vitality Blast...and has one of the highest List A averages in Pak domestic cricket.

    Well it should be an experimental series. Haider Ali is a mind boggling exclusion.

    Shaheen has no buiseness playing any of these matches. He should sit out all 3.

    Naseem, Dahani, Waseem, A Shafique, Agha should play all 3 games.

    Wasim’s logic is rubbish

    KL rahul is an opener yet he plays in the middle order in ODIs. Sometimes team has to experiment when you have minnow level middle order.

    Shan Masood in the middle-order would be a far better choice than Haider Ali, Saud Shakeel or his new boy Salman Ali Agha, who has so far done nothing to show that he is good enough to play international cricket.

    Mohammad Wasim on why not pick youngsters for the ODI series vs NED?

    "When people speak of giving chances to youngsters then that is applicable in a scenario where you have a well settled side with experienced players in it but when you look at this squad, you will not see that many experienced players in it"

    "None of these players has played 100 ODIs so it is a young side; When you have a side which has experienced player than you go towards rotation of the side"

    "This squad does have some players who haven't played much or not played ODIs at all such as Abdullah Shafique so we can look at giving him a chance to play also"

    He is not wrong. Pakistan also need to figure out their middle order issues and their first choice bowling attack. They have hardly played any ODI's since 2019 World Cup.

    They can afford to experiment in T20's though but not until the WC is over.

    As for everyone pining for Ghulam & Shan Masood, look at their List A strike rates. More accumulators in the middle order doesn't make any sense if the goal is to be a more modern side.

    Imo, the reason so many 1st choice players are picked here is because it probably is a nice vacation. There's no cricketing justification and it's ok (kinda).

    I really doubt half of these big names would've played if Pakistan was hosting instead.

    We just should make sure the new guys should play as much as possible while Shaheen who desperately needs a rest shouldn't play at all.

    Netherlands bound squad to face Pakistan Shaheens before departure

    Lahore, 4 August 2022:

    Babar Azam-led Pakistan ODI squad will face Pakistan Shaheens twice in a seven-day long training camp in Lahore. Sindh middle-order batter Saud Shakeel will lead Pakistan Shaheens in the two 50-over games on 7 and 10 August at the LCCA Ground.

    Abdullah Shafique and Zahid Mehmood, part of Pakistan’s 16-player Netherlands bound ODI squad, will represent the Shaheens in the two practice matches.

    This will be the first time when both squads will come face-to-face; practice matches between the two Pakistan teams are set to become a regular practice in future.

    Depending on team and tour requirements, the two squads will feature in different format matches that would aim to provide both practice to the national squad members and exposure to the reserve and upcoming players.

    Besides Saud, for the two matches on Sunday and Wednesday, the Shaheens squad will feature talented players like Kamran Ghulam, Abbas Afridi, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Arshad Iqbal, Faisal Akram, Haseebullah, Abrar Ahmed, Mir Hamza and Qasim Akram.

    12-player Shaheens squad:

    Saud Shakeel (Captain), Kamran Ghulam (Vice-captain), Abbas Afridi, Abdullah Shafique, Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Arshad Iqbal, Faisal Akram, Haseebullah (wicket-keeper), Abrar Ahmed, Mir Hamza, Qasim Akram and Zahid Mehmood

    Media advisory for Netherlands bound squad is as follows (for any query; please contact Ibrahim Badees Muhammad, the media and digital manager of the Pakistan team, at 0345-4743486):

    The training camp for the Netherlands bound players will be held in Lahore from 6-11 August. The side will depart for Amsterdam in the wee hours of Friday, 12 August. Mohammad Rizwan will join the camp after the first practice match while Haris Rauf will report in NHPC on 7th August.

    They should televise the match to be honest. It would be fun to watch some of these young guys bat against Shaheen/Rauf etc.
