I am going there and my task is to prepare a good team for this year’s regional qualifiers for World T20.
Cricket Sweden also expects big things from the former batsman. Their statement reads:
The Swedish national team will go to the Netherlands at the end of August/early September to participate in the ICC 2020 World T20 Europe Qualifier. For this reason, the Swedish Cricket Federation believes that Mohammad Wasim’s experience from the Netherlands will be of great use.
The Netherlands will host the ICC World T2o European Qualifiers this year in August/September.
