PAK vs NED, Pakistan's T20I Tour of Netherlands

PAK vs NED, Pakistan’s T20I Tour of Netherlands is Postponed Due To The Scheduling Reasons | Pakistan Tour of Netherlands 2024: On the request of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), ICC postponed Pakistan’s tour to the Netherlands, which included three T20I matches, and the series was initially scheduled for May 2023, just before the T20I World Cup 2024.

Pakistan had a busy schedule in 2024 before the T20I World Cup 2024, as they will play three T20Is against Ireland and four T20Is against England. Such a tight schedule of the Pakistan Cricket Team before a tournament led to a high workload on their players, which is not good for player’s fitness.

The Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Board (KNCB) manager, Roland Lefebvre, is not happy with the decision made by PCB to postpone the T20I series. The Three-match T20I series against Pakistan means a lot for the Netherlands as it will help them test their bench strength before the ICC Men’s T20I World Cup 2024.

Netherlands qualified for the ICC Men’s T20I World Cup 2024, which is scheduled to be held in the West Indies and USA. All the teams are now focusing on the T20I format after the end of the ODI World Cup 2023, and the Australian Team won the tournament by defeating the host India.

Netherlands and Pakistan played three ODIs last year, which Pakistan easily won by 3-0. Pakistan completely dominated the Netherlands in all three matches, but the Netherlands showed exceptional cricket in this series against a strong Pakistani bowling line-up.

PAK vs NED, Pakistan made many changes in the coaching staff after the World Cup 2023:

Recently, Wahab Riaz was appointed as the new chief selector of Pakistan, whereas Umar is now the new fast bowling coach, and Saeed Ajmal has been appointed as the new spin bowling coach of the Pakistan Men’s Cricket Team. These changes were made in Pakistan’s coaching staff after having poor performance in the ODI World Cup 2023.

Pakistan failed to qualify for the World Cup 2023 Semi-Finals as they played nine matches in the league stage, out of which they won only four games. Pakistan didn’t play their best cricket in this tournament, which cost them a lot. Babar Azam also resigned as the captain of Pakistan Men’s Cricket Team from all three formats.
