Here’s the schedule of Pakistan cricket team’s tour of Netherlands
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the schedule for the Pakistan tour of the Netherlands. It will be the first ever bilateral ODI series between the two countries, which will be played in Rotterdam.
The One Day Internationals (ODIs) will be part of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. Pakistan and Netherlands will play three ODIs against each other, starting from August 16th.
The two teams have previously played against each other on three occasions ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups 1996 and 2003, and the ICC Champions Trophy 2002. The Men in Green have won all three matches.
The series was scheduled to be played in July 2020 but it got postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Netherlands have won just two of their 10 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League matches, while Pakistan has won 6 out 12.
“It is important to the growth and development of cricket in the Netherlands as well as to the two teams’ chances of progressing directly to the 2023 World Cup,” Pakistan Cricket Board Director Zakir Khan said.
Here’s the schedule of the series:
- 16 Aug – 1st ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam
- 18 Aug – 2nd ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam
- 21 Aug – 3rd ODI; VOC Cricket Ground, Rotterdam
