Pakistan have recalled veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez for the upcoming Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka.

The 37-year-old was overlooked for the home series against World XI and last featured for Pakistan in the shorter format in March 2017.

Pace bowler Mohammad Amir has been included in the squad despite missing the One-Day International series against the same opposition due to a shin injury that he sustained in the second Test. The 25-year-old's place will be subject to fitness.

The only omission from the squad is pace bowler Sohail Khan, who has been left out despite picking three wickets from two games against World XI.

The three-match T20I series will kick-off on 26th October with the first two matches to be played in Abu Dhabi following which the teams will head to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore for the final encounter.

Pakistan squad for T20I series against Sri Lanka:

Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shahzad, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Aamer Yamin, Mohammad Amir (subject to fitness), Rumman Raees, Usman Khan, Umar Amin
