The team will first travel to New Zealand, where they will play a T20I tri-series against New Zealand and Bangladesh in Christchurch from 7-14 October.
Pakistan have been named in an 18-man squad for the upcoming seven-match T20I series against England, with both Shaheen and Fakhar Zaman absent.
Wasim said, “Fakhar Zaman has also been rested from the England T20 International to recover from a knee injury he had landed awkwardly while fielding in the final.”
Pakistan will play their first World Cup match against India on 23 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. They will also play New Zealand, Afghanistan and two qualifiers in the group stage, before the top two sides qualify for the semi-finals.
