Ahmad Shahzad returns for New Zealand T20Is

Ahmad Shahzad returns for New Zealand T20Is”

Opener Ahmed Shehzad, who had been dropped for the ODI leg of the New Zealand tour, has returned to Pakistan's squad for the three-match T20 series.

With allrounder Imad Wasim yet to recover from the knee injury that had sidelined him from the ODI series, Mohammad Nawaz retained his place in the squad.

"Imad Wasim was told to continue his rehabilitation at the NCA", chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said in a statement. He smashed a double century in a domestic One-Day Cup match last week.

Therefore, his exclusion from the squad is surprising.

The national selection committee headed by Inzamam-ul-Haq after consultation with Captain Sarfraz Ahmed and head coach Mickey Arthur announced T-20 squad for three-match T-20I series commencing from January 22 till January 28, 2018.

Pakistan are now two down in the five-match ODI series in New Zealand, with the third match in Dunedin on Saturday.

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.

Pakistan has lost two ODI matches to the Kiwis.

The T20 series begins at Wellington on January 22. They will look to bounce back stronger in the T20Is with the return of an in-form Ahmed Shehzad and the exclusion of Imam, who hasn't been able to make the most of the opportunities, may be a good opportunity to test Umar Amin.
