Pak Women in WI 2021
All 26 players who were part of the 25-day prepratory camp have been named in the squad
The senior side will play West Indies in three T20Is and five ODIs, and the shadow side will play West Indies A in three one-day matches and three T20s. All 26 players will be available for selection for all 14 matches, the PCB explained. The tour runs from June 30 to July 18. All matches will be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
Mumtaz added that the limited-overs games for the A side would be an opportunity for the second string of players to “stake a claim in the national side as exceptional performances will be rewarded by players getting bumped up” to the senior side. “I am hopeful that there will be quality cricket on display as we aim to further improve our world standing and continue to push to become top contenders on the world stage,” she said.
The PCB said in a statement that the 26 players and support staff had arrived in Lahore on Monday morning and would take pre-departure Covid-19 tests in the afternoon. The touring party will leave for Antigua via London in the wee hours of June 23, and be tested twice in five days thereafter, and then serve a four-day quarantine (room isolation) before beginning training.
