All-rounder Sohail Tanveer will lead Pakistan's second string against an Afghanistan side that is set to become the first international team to tour Pakistan since March 2009.
The fledgling Afghan side will play three one-day matches, including the final fixture on May 29 in Abbottabad -- the city near Islamabad where Osama bin Laden was killed earlier this month by US forces.
The 26-year-old Tanveer was named in the Pakistan team for last year's tour of New Zealand but had to withdraw after suffering an injury.
Afghanistan, coached by former Pakistan captain and wicket-keeper Rashid Latif, have taken rapid strides at international level in the last two years.
They won one-day status in 2009 and then qualified for the World Twenty20 before winning the ICC (International Cricket Council) Inter-Continental Cup.
No side has toured Pakistan since an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore which killed eight people and left seven visiting players and their assistant coach wounded.
Squad: Sohail Tanveer (capt), Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Sharjeel Khan, Umer Amin, Naveed Yasin, Usman Salahuddin, Rameez Raja, Mansoor Amjad, Sarfraz Ahmed, Zulfiqar Babar, Yasir Shah, Sohail Khan, Mohammad Talha, Sadaf Hussain.
