Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik and middle-order batter Haris Sohail are under consideration for this year’s T20 World Cup.
Pakistan have already named their squad for the mega event, however they can still make changes till October 15.
The names of Malik and Sohail have been suggested by national coaches Mushtaq Ahmed and Ijaz Ahmed.
The duo are likely to replace Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali, if the latter are unable to impress during the ongoing Pakistan-England T20I series.
Reportedly, Mushtaq and Ijaz are unhappy with the performance of Khushdil and Asif.
