Netherlands Debut

Wasim was a regular for the North Holland Hurricanes in the North Sea Pro Series that season and also turned out for Netherlands A in the Continental T20 Championship in Schiedam.He made good half-centuries at Hobart and Bridgetown, but was not consistent enough for the selectors and after back-to-back failures against Sri Lanka in 2000 he was dropped. His one-day career was similar, with some good performances, but not enough to maintain his spot in the side, especially given his tendency to start slowly.
