The 26-player contingent named by Pakistan is set to be divided into the national side and the ‘A’ side upon their arrival in the Caribbean.
Javeria Khan, who has played 208 internationals and is the leading run-scorer for Pakistan in women's ODIs, will lead the national side. In the eight ODIs she has captained in so far, she is yet to register a win. The five upcoming ODIs against West Indies will present her with an opportunity to alter that record.
Pakistan's tour of the West Indies will commence on 30 June with the teams battling it out in three T20Is, followed by the three ODIs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and the Coolidge Cricket Ground.
The chairperson of the national women’s selection committee, Urooj Mumtaz, said the tour provides an opportunity for the players to cement their positions for the upcoming ICC Women's World Cup Qualifiers and T20 World Cup in the 2021-22 window.
"This is a historic occasion in the history of Pakistan women’s cricket as for the first time the national side and the ‘A’ team are travelling together.
"The Caribbean tour presents a phenomenal opportunity to our core group of cricketers to showcase their performances and further cement places for the 2021-22 season, which promises to be an exciting one for women’s cricket,” Mumtaz added.
"These 26 players have been involved in all our high-performance camps over the past nine months and have put in the hard yards under the national coaching staff led by David Hemp. The group has prepared with high intensity and purpose. They remain focused and determined to put up winning performances.
"Our last bilateral series with the West Indies produced quality competitive cricket. The closely fought T20I series was witnessed by a passionate crowd of young girls in Karachi. We then went on to record a historic 2-1 ODI series win with an extraordinary fight to come back from behind. I am hopeful that there will be quality cricket on display as we aim to further improve our world standing and continue to push to become top contenders on the world stage,” said Mumtaz.
