Islamabad: Pakistan’s all-rounder Shahid Afridi and former captain Shoaib Malik have been recalled for the upcoming one-day international and Twenty20 series against South Africa.
The selectors have turned back to the duo after team’s most batsmen failed to perform in the ongoing Test series.
Proteas are leading 2-0 in the three-test series with the last test beginning at Centurion from Friday.
Pakistan will play two T20 matches against the hosts on March 1 and 3 before the five-match ODI series begins at Bloemfontein on March 10.
