The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has recently announced a 15-member women squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh starting from this month. This time national team selectors have selected Bismah Maroof to lead the squad while the exclusion of brilliant player Nida Dar from the team came as a big shock for Pakistani cricket fans.
The chief selector of Pakistani women’s cricket team, Urooj Mumtaz said while announcing the strong squad for an upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh, “we are delighted to host the Bangladesh team and look forward to an exciting series. It is the first international assignment for the team since the tour to South Africa in June. The team is a very good blend of experience and young exciting players”. Ahead of their opening T20I clash against Bangladeshi women, green-army is sweating hard in the field to give a tough competition to the visitors.
At first, both the teams will face each other in a T20I series which is scheduled to be held from October 26th till October 30th at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. This will be then followed by a two-match One Day International series starting from November 2nd at Lahore. When on one side men’s cricket team of Pakistan have already faced a lot of heat on social media for their flop show against Sri Lanka at their own pitch, women’s cricket team on the other, are quite hopeful for their performance in the upcoming series.
It will be interesting to see whether the hosts will be able to dominate the strong visitors in front of the home crowd or powerful Bangladeshi squad will whitewash the green-army with brilliant bowling and batting spells.
