Pakistan have recalled Ahmed Shehzad for the Twenty20 global series against New Zealand this month.

Imad Wasim will continue with his rehabilitation after a knee injury kept him out of the ongoing ODI series.

Pakistan will be without Imad Wasim's services for the T20Is against New Zealand.

The T20 series begins at Wellington on January 22.

Meanwhile, Shehzad, 26, retained his place in the side despite being dropped for the third and final Twenty20 against Sri Lanka in Lahore, his recent form being a factor.

Pakistan on Wednesday announced the 15-member squad for the Twenty20 series against New Zealand which starts on 22nd January.

Ahmed's prolific showing in the ongoing Departmental One-day Cup was the chief reason behind his return to the national line-up.

Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez have been selected to represent the green shirts and strengthen their batting lineup.
