Mohammad Hafeez, who was named Pakistan’s Twenty20 captain ahead of the just-concluded Sri Lanka tour, will continue to lead.
According to the PCB release that announced the squad, Hafeez has been named captain ’till the end of 2012′.
Opener Nasir Jamshed, who was ruled out of the Sri Lanka tour after fracturing his left index finger, is fit and has been picked in this squad.
