ISLAMABAD - Two surprise additions have been made in the Pakistani T20 squad against Srilanka which will be in action from October 5 at Lahore Qadafi stadium.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a 16-man squad for the three-match Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka. The team was finalized after collaboration between the head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq, and captain Sarfraz Ahmed.
