Experienced cricketers including Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, and Hasan Ali have been rested as Pakistan announced T20I and ODI squads against West Indies.

Pakistan’s chief selector Mohammad Wasim, on Thursday, announced 15-member T20I and 17-member ODI squad for the home series against West Indies.

“As we have been playing T20Is since October and now have a pretty settled and balanced side, we have decided to reduce the number of players to 15. As such, we have not included Imad Wasim, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik,” Wasim said.

“For the ODIs, which we last played in July, we have accepted the team management’s request and provided them two additional resources,” he added.
