He has played 44 first-class matches and averages 47.36, having struck 10 centuries and 18 half-centuries for his 3268 runs. He replaces Azhar Ali in the squad after the senior batter’s retirement.
The series will start on December 26 in Karachi and then move to Multan for the second game starting January 3.
