One of the players to make an impact in the 2018 Under 19 World Cup for Pakistan, fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has been called up to the national team for the T20 series against the West Indies early next month.

The three-match series will be played from April 1 to 3. All matches will be played at Karachi.
