Urooj Mumtaz announces Pakistan women’s cricket squad for South Africa tour

Urooj Mumtaz, the chief selector for the Pakistan women’s cricket team has announced the squad for the South Africa tour on Thursday in a press release of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The 17-member squad is to play three-match ODI series and as many T20I in Durban and Pietermaritzburg in January 2021.

Notably, Bismah Maroof is not available as she sidelined herself for personal reasons. Hence, Javeria Khan has been named skipper for ODIs and T20Is.

Ayesha Zafar, Nahida Khan, Kainat Imtiaz, and Nashra Sandhu have been bounced back to the squad after their bombastic performances in the recently concluded National Triangular T20 Women’s Cricket Championship.
