Sohail has been included in the place of the injured Babar Azam.

Pakistan on Monday announced their 15-man squad for the two-match T20I series against Scotland beginning on June 12.

Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed will continue to lead the side with teenage pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi retained after his promising debut against the West Indies in April.

Pacers Rahat Ali and Usman Shinwari also return to the side with spearhead Mohammad Amir included in the squad too despite his knee troubles. Babar Azam, who suffered an elbow injury in the first Test between England and Pakistan, has been replaced by Haris Sohail in the squad.

Also included are the Islamabad United duo of Asif Ali and Hussain Talat, who were given their Pakistan debuts in the three-match series against West Indies.

Pakistan’s engagements in England came to an end on Sunday with an innings defeat against the hosts in the second Test at Headingley which saw the two-match series finish all square at 1-1.

The T20I squad will now depart for Edinburgh where the two T20Is against Scotland will be held. Both matches will be played at the Grange Cricket Club on June 12 and 13 respectively.
