Javeria Khan has been named to lead the Pakistan team in the upcoming series against Bangladesh and Australia in the absence of regular skipper Bismah Maroof, reports Icc-cricket.com.

The women’s selection committee, headed by former men’s team pacer Jalaluddin, named a 15-member squad for the two series, with Khan penned in as the captain. “Bismah Maroof is unavailable for the selection due to surgery, but may be included for the series against Australia subject to full recovery,” said the Pakistan Cricket Board in a statement. Pakistan will play four T20Is and a solitary ODI on the tour of Bangladesh, which begins on 1 October.
