Pakistan is expected to field some exciting new faces in their line-up, with the likes of Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali getting much-needed rest. Mohammad Waseem Jnr, Shahwnawaz Dahani, and Arshad Iqbal are a few of the players likely to debut for the national team in the upcoming tour.

Pakistan limited-overs vice-captain, Shadab Khan, has been ruled out of the tour due to an injury suffered during the team’s tour of South Africa. Therefore, Pakistan will be without his services. Usman Qadir and Mohammad Nawaz are the only other recognized spinners in the T20I squad.
