Shehzad back in Pakistan squad for T20s in New Zealand

Shehzad back in Pakistan squad for T20s in New Zealand

Pakistan on Wednesday announced a 15-man squad for the three-match Twenty20 global series against New Zealand later this month.

All-rounder Imad Wasim has not yet recovered from the knee injury and the selectors have retained another all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz in the T20 squad.

Due to inconsistent performances, the 26-year-old Shehzad was dropped for the third T20I against Sri Lanka in Lahore in November, but his recent exploits helped him make a comeback in the squad.

But Kamran, 35, was not so lucky, despite being the highest run scorer in National Twenty20 with 432 runs last November. He smashed a double century in a domestic One-Day Cup match last week.

"Imad Wasim was yet to recover from his knee injury, and was told to continue his rehabilitation at the NCA", Inzamam ul Haq, the chief selector, said. The only other change from the ODI squad was the inclusion of batsman Umar Amin in place of Imam-ul-Haq.

Squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain, wk), Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Harris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Aamer Yamin, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees, Umar Amin.

The first T20 global will be played at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Jan 22.

Pakistan has lost two ODI matches to the Kiwis.
