Head Coach and Chief Selector for Pakistan Misbahul Haq on Thursday announced Pakistan’s Twenty 20 International squad for the upcoming tour of the Bangladesh cricket team.

Ahsan Ali, Amad Butt and Haris Rauf are expected to debut in the series, while Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Shaheen Shah Afridi have been recalled in the 15-player squad for the T20 Internationals to be played on January 24, 25 and 27 in Lahore.

“We have combined old and new players in this squad in the hopes that they will be able to end Pakistan’s recent losing streak,” Misbah said before introducing the squad.

“We have lost eight of our last nine T20Is and as the number-one ranked side, this is unacceptable. We need to end our losing cycle and get back to winning habits leading into the upcoming Asia Cup and ICC T20 World Cup. This has played a critical role in our decision-making.”
