Pacer Hasan Ali has been dropped from Pakistan’s ODI squad for the series against Netherlands and Asia Cup 2022 as well. Hasan Ali has been replaced in both teams by fast bowler Naseem Shah, while Salman Ali Agha, who travelled to England in 2021 for the ODIs, has been summoned back.

In addition to naming a 15-man team for the ACC T20 Asia Cup, which will take place in the United Arab Emirates from August 27 to September 11, Pakistan has also chosen a 16-man squad for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League matches against the Netherlands from August 16 to 21.

Chief selector Muhammad Wasim, in an official release, said: “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“Hasan has been given a break from international cricket and he has been replaced by Naseem Shah.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,” he added.
