Hasan Ali has been replaced by the fast bowler Naseem Shah in both of the teams, and Salman Ali Agha, who played in the one-day internationals in England in 2021, has been recalled.

In order to better prepare for the ACC T20 Asia Cup, the Netherlands ODI squad will undergo five substitutions. Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Usman Qadir will take over for Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Haris, and Zahid Mehmood in their respective roles as captain and vice captain, respectively.
