Pakistan tour of Netherlands 2022: Full squads, Fixtures & Preview: All you need to know
The Pakistan tour of Netherlands 2022 comprises 3 ODIs which will be a part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League.
Netherlands last played against New Zealand in a 2-match T20I series, where they weren't able to put up much of a fight against a second-string Kiwi side.
New Zealand won the 1st T20I by 16 runs and then wrapped up the series with another 8-wicket win.
The Netherlands though can be efficient at home on their day. There is little doubt that they possess the raw ingredients to make a difference. It's just about whether everything can come together for them on a particular day.
And, it's quite obvious that doing that against a well-oiled Pakistan side will be tough, especially when they will be playing at close to full strength.
Uncapped white-ball pacer Naseem Shah has been given a go in Pakistan's 16-member One-Day International squad for the Netherlands tour. The 19-year-old pacer makes the cut in place of out-of -form Hasan Ali. All-rounder Salman Agha has also been given the nod.
Pakistan have also retained left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi in the squad but have made it clear that 'his rehabilitation programme will be overseen by the team trainer and physiotherapist, who will also decide on his return to international cricket.'
Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Haris, Salman Ali Agha and Zahid Mehmood, who have been selected in the ODI squad, will have to step aside for Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed and Usman Qadir come the 20-over Asia Cup.
Netherlands - Stephan Myburgh, Max O'Dowd, Bas de Leede, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (c & wk), Vikramjit Singh, Logan van Beek, Tim Pringle, Ryan Klein, Shariz Ahmad, Clayton Floyd, Teja Nidamanuru, Vivian Kingma, Aryan Dutt
