Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad have returned to Pakistan's squad for the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka following a lengthy period of absence from the national side.
Pakistan cricket team's head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq made the announcement regarding the 16-member squad for the T20Is scheduled to take place in Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium between October 5 and 9.
Three changes have been made to the Pakistan side currently participating in the ODI series in Karachi with Abid Ali, Mohammad Rizwan and Imam-ul-Haq missing out for the T20Is.
In addition to Akmal and Shehzad, Faheem Ashraf will be joining the squad for the three short-form fixtures.
All three players were part of the 20 probables named ahead of Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan but were not inducted into the ODI line-up.
Faheem, who has been a regular part of Pakistan's white-ball set-up, was left out of the World Cup squad after a string of mediocre outings in England before the 50-over showpiece event.
He will be unavailable for selection for the final ODI on Wednesday with Abid most likely to open the innings in his place.
Pakistan will not be able to get the services of pacers Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali who have been ruled out due to health issues.
Shaheen is still recovering from dengue whereas Hasan is suffering from a back spasm.
