Pakistan have drafted uncapped pacer Amad Butt in the 13-man squad for the lone Twenty20 International against England at Old Trafford on 7th September.

The 21-year-old was part of the Pakistan A team during their recent tour of England, where he picked two wickets from as many games. In his T20 career, Butt has managed to pick 12 wickets from six games overall.

Khalid Latif, who scored 49 runs from two games for Pakistan in the World T20 tournament held in India has managed to retain his place while the core of the batting remains the same from the One-Day International squad except for the exclusion of Sami Aslam and Azhar Ali.

This will also be the first game for Pakistan under their newly appointed T20 captain, Sarfraz Ahmed, who replaced Shahid Afridi following the World T20.

Mohammad Irfan, who was added as a late replacement for the injured Mohammad Hafeez will retain his place in the T20 squad.

Pakistan squad for T20I against England:

Sarfraz Ahmed (capt), Khalid Latif, Sharjeel Khan, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Mohammad Nawaz, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan, Sohail Tanvir, Amad Butt
