SL name women’s cricket squad for Pakistan tour
COLOMBO: The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) selection committee named a 15-member squad for the Pakistan tour, while also naming an additional five players on standby, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on its website on Wednesday.
The two sides will first play three T20Is, followed by as many ODIs between May 24 and June 5 in Karachi.
The three ODIs will form a part of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25 in which Pakistan finished fifth in the last cycle, ahead of New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka. The visitors finished at the bottom and will be hoping to better their performances in the upcoming cycle.
All the matches will be played at Karachi’s Southend Club — Pakistan’s first international series at the venue since they hosted West Indies for three T20 Internationals in December 2018.
