“Asif Ali, Hussain Talat and Shaheen Shah Afridi makes a place in the T-20 squad after performing well in the recent concluded PSL’s third edition,” said chief selector Inzamam ul Haq.

“Rahat Ali also gets a chance in the squad after bowling well in the league,” he added.

The chief selector further added that Imad Wasim and Ruman Raees have yet to recover from their injuries sustained during the PSL and therefore were not considered for selection.

Meanwhile, Usman Khan Shinwari has also made a comeback in the team after recovering from his injury.
