Pakistan women have made headlines once again as they announced they will be recalling batter Iram Javed for their upcoming tour of Bangladesh, which is scheduled for the later stages of October. It is worth noting that Javed last represented Pakistan at the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

The series between Pakistan women and Bangladesh women will consist of three T20Is and three ODIs. Both sides announced the squads that will be participating in the series, and after the announcement, it was made clear that bowling all-rounder Fatima Sana will not be a part of the series owing to the injuries that she picked up when facing South Africa women in September.

Furthermore, youngsters like Shawaal Zulfiqar and Syeda Aroob Shah will also be missing out on the Bangladesh tour, as they are likely to be named in the Pakistan emerging squad that will be partaking in a camp in Muridke ahead of an emerging team series against the West Indies and Thailand later this month.

Iram's presence will undoubtedly strengthen our batting order: Saleem Jaffar

After the squad announcement, Pakistan’s women’s chief selector came forward and talked of the various players that will be missing out and pointed out the inclusion of Javed and how her presence will significantly strengthen the lineup.

“Young Shawaal Zulfiqar has been omitted from the squad as she requires more grooming before representing again at the international level. The members of the selection committee have recalled experienced Iram Javed in the squad. Iram's presence will undoubtedly strengthen our batting order in Bangladesh conditions,” Saleem Jaffar was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

"Fatima Sana is on the road to recovery, and we are committed to giving her the time she needs to be fully prepared for the upcoming away series against New Zealand where the selection committee feels the right-arm fast bowler will be more productive,” she added.
