Pakistan fast bowler Anwar Ali has been ruled out of the upcoming One-Day International series against Zimbabwe after failing to recover from a groin strain.

Earlier, Anwar was kept out of the squad for the Twenty20 Internationals to give him time to recover for the ODIs against Zimbabwe. 

However after failing a fitness test Anwar was replaced by Aamir Yamin, who was his replacement in the 20-over format as well.

"Aamir Yamin who is already in the T20 squad will replace Anwar for the one-day matches as well,” said an official of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

The 27-year-old, Ali remained confident about making a comeback very soon.

"But I am resting and also doing necessary rehab and I am confident I will be back in action soon.”

Pakistan managed to get their campaign against Zimbabwe underway with a 13-run victory in the first T20I in Harare on Sunday.  

Pakistan ODI squad for Zimbabwe series:

Azhar Ali (captain), Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohaib Maqsood, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Mohammad Rizwan, Imad Wasim, Aamir Yamin, Wahab Raiz, Yasir Shah, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Irfan
