Pak v WI, T20I series, news

Asif Ali, Hussain Talat and Shaheen Afridi have been included in 15-man squad after strong Pakistan Super League performances.

Asif Ali, Hussain Talat and Shaheen Afridi have been rewarded for strong performances in the Pakistan Super League 2018 with maiden call-ups to the national side for the upcoming Twenty20 International series against the Windies.

In the bowling stocks, left-arm seamers Rahat Ali and Usman Khan return to the squad but Imad Wasim and Rumman Raees are still absent through injury.

Batting-wise, Shoaib Malik, who missed the second half of the tour to New Zealand with concussion after being hit on the head by a misplaced throw, also returns to the 15-man squad, but Kamran Akmal, 36, who scored 425 runs in 13 PSL matches, is not included.

Left-arm quick Shaheen Afridi, just 17 years of age, took five wickets for four runs in one innings – the best ever figures in PSL history.

Pakistan T20I squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain/wicket-keeper), Ahmed Shehzad, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, , Hussain Talat, Faheem Ashraf, Muhammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Rahat Ali, Usman Khan, Shaheen Afridi.
