Pakistan appointed Rameen Shamim as the captain of Pakistan’s squad for the ACC Women’s Emerging Teams Asia Cup.
On Wednesday, the board appointed the off-spinner Rameen as the national women’s team captain for the tournament which will be held in Colombo from 22 – 27 October.
Rameen has played four T20Is on Pakistan women’s recent tour to South Africa. She has also inspired PCB Blasters to National Triangular One-Day Women’s Cricket Championship title last month which was held in Lahore.
As reported by urdupoint.com, Pakistan will play the first game on October 22 when they meet Sri Lanka while they will play Bangladesh the following day. Pakistan will face India on 25th October. The final will be held on 27th October.
“According to the tournament regulations, 11 squad members must be born on or after September 1st, 1996, while in the playing line-up, a team can field a maximum of three players over 23 years of age”, a PCB spokesperson said.
There are quite a few international players in the squad apart from Rameen. Players like Fatima Sana Khan, Javeria Rauf, Maham Tariq, Nashra Sandhu and Muneeba Ali have already represented Pakistan in the international arena.
A training camp will be set up at the High-Performance Centre in Multan from 5th October to prepare the players for this tournament.
