LAHORE: Mohammad Hasnain will replace Shaheen Shah Afridi in the Pakistan squad for the ACC T20 Asia Cup after the pace ace was earlier ruled out due to an injury.
Hasnain will join the side from the United Kingdom, where he is representing Oval Invincibles in The Hundred competition.
Injured pacer Shaheen was excluded from the upcoming Asia Cup 2022, dealing a major setback to the Pakistan side, who were banking on his bowling in the upcoming international tournament.
Shaheen had suffered a right knee ligament injury while fielding during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle last month.
