Netherlands announce squad for Pakistan ODIs
AMSTERDAM: Veteran wicket-keeper/batter Wesley Barresi returned to the Netherlands One-day International side after three years as the Dutch Cricket Association announced their 15-member squad for three-match series against Pakistan on Sunday.
Barresi, 38, who made his debut in 2010, played his last game in 2019. He has scored 927 runs in 32 ODIs for the Netherlands and has featured for the national side in 42 T20s.
Uncapped all-rounder Arnav Jain and Lahore-born Musa Ahmed have also been named in the squad as seven Dutch players skipped national duty to play in The Hundred and Royal London Cup in England.
Fred Klaassen, Colin Ackermann, Roelof van der Merwe, and Timm van der Gugten are all currently participating in The Hundred, while Paul van Meekeren, Shane Snater and Brandon Glover are participating in the Royal London Cup — England’s domestic one-day competition.
The three ODIs — part of the ICC World Cup Super League — will be played on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at the VOC ground in Rotterdam.
Squad: Scott Edwards (captain/wicket-keeper), Musa Ahmad, Shariz Ahmad, Wesley Barresi, Logan van Beek, Tom Cooper, Aryan Dutt, Arnav Jain, Viv Kingma, Ryan Klein, Bas de Leede, Teja Nidamanuru, Tim Pringle, Max O’Dowd, Vikram Singh.
