Batsman Hashim Amla and fast bowler Dale Steyn have been recalled to South Africa's Twenty20 International squad ahead of two games next month against Pakistan.

Neither man toured Sri Lanka earlier this year and their returns come at the expense of Farhaan Behardien and Rory Kleinveldt, who miss out as well as Chris Morris.

South Africa end their series of matches against Pakistan with two Twenty20 Internationals in Dubai on 13th and 15th November.

Although Steyn was rested earlier in the year, Amla's absence came after he made himself unavailable for the shortest format of the game following the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka last year.

South Africa Twenty20 International squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Henry Davids, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, David Wiese
