Pakistan Cricket Board’s selection panel announced a 17-member squad against England for the three T20 International matches.
The Babar Azam-led team will play Eoin Morgan’s England at Old Trafford, Manchester, from 28 August to 1 September.
Pakistan Head Coach and Chief Selector Misbah-ul-Haq Said:
“This is mostly the same team that has been featuring in the shortest format for us.
Besides retaining the core, we have inducted youngsters like Haider Ali, who has performed well in the HBL PSL, U19, and first-class cricket, and Naseem Shah as we had an opportunity to keep a bigger pool due to Covid-19 pandemic, which also increases our options.
Our two experienced bowlers in Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz have also returned to the side, along with Fakhar Zaman and Sarfaraz Ahmed.”
“It is going to be a competitive series as England are a strong side. We are looking forward to play good cricket and win the series.”

Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, Naseem Shah, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz.
