Pakistan women’s team squad announcement for Commonwealth Games

Pakistan women’s team for the Commonwealth Games has been announced

The Pakistan women’s cricket team has been retained by the chief selector of the national women’s cricket team. The team recorded their maiden T20I series clean sweep against Sri Lanka – for their upcoming commitments in the United Kingdom during which they will compete in a tri-series in Ireland and Commonwealth Games in England.

The squad was chosen after discussions between Asmavia Iqbal, the main selector for the national women’s team, head coach David Hemp, and Captain Bismah Maroof. The two series will include eighteen players, including three reserve players: Ghulam Fatima, Sadaf Shamas, and Umme Hani.

Pakistan will take on T20 world champions Australia and hosts Ireland in Belfast from 16 to 24 July and play Barbados, India, and Australia in Commonwealth Games on 29, 31 July, and 3 August. Ahead of their departure to the UK on 12 July, the team will undergo an extensive training session in Islamabad at the t House of Northern from 1 to 11 July.

Chief Selector Asmavia Iqbal: We have opted to keep the same winning combination after a great series against Sri Lanka. Not only did our older cricketers in the sideshow remarkable cricketing ability, but our younger players also shone and raised their hands whenever the team required it.

Chief Selector Asmavia Iqbal added that Tuba Hassan has had a great start to her international career, and we believe her leg-spin will be a valuable weapon for us in the future. In the second T20I against Sri Lanka, Ayesha Naseem performed match-winning innings, proving her big-hitting talent.

The tri-series in Ireland and the Birmingham Commonwealth Games will test the abilities of our players and I have the belief in them that they will live up to the expectations and show consistent results.

Tania Mallick the Head of Women Cricket: I’d like to congratulate our team for a good and dominant performance against Sri Lanka in Karachi, and I am certain that they will maintain their form in the ICC Women’s Championship games. Our squad has every chance to succeed in the United Kingdom, and I wish them the best of luck in the tri-series and Commonwealth Games.

I want to thank the Commonwealth Games for accepting our request to accommodate our captain Bismah Maroof’s family at the games village which will allow her to focus on the task at hand without any worries about her young infant daughter, she said.
