Ex-Pakistani Test batsman Muhammad Waseem was handed a One Day International (ODI) cap by Netherlands on Wednesday, a move that will see the veteran revive his international cricketing career.

Waseem, who played 18 international Test matches for Pakistan, shot to fame when he scored a century on his debut against New Zealand in November 1996 at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

He ended up playing 18 Tests for Pakistan, he scored 783 runs at an average of 30.11 per match, with the help of two centuries and two half centuries.

Waseem was handed the ODI cap for Pakistan in the same series. He went on to play 25 ODIs for Pakistan, in which he scored 543 runs at an average of 23.60.

The last time donned the pads for Pakistan was in June 2000 against Sri Lanka, after which selectors dropped him owing to his inconsistent form with the bat.

Incomplete rerporting by ET as no mention is made of how & when Wasim obtained the right to represent Netherlands. Is he living in Netherlands now?
