Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) chief executive Naseeb Khan said the best available players had been chosen. Former captain Mohammad Nabi, who stepped down after the Twenty20 World Cup in November, is also part of the squad. Wily spinner Rashid Khan will lead the Afghanistan team in the T20I series against Pakistan.

Meanwhile, in the absence of all-format captain Babar Azam, the Pakistan side will be led by Shadow Khan. He has been the Pakistan vice-captain in white-ball cricket for the past couple of years. 

Rashid Khan-led Afghanistan is coming off a successful bilateral series against the UAE, where they won the series 2-1. Whereas, Pakistan will be looking to bounce back after their disappointment at the T20 World Cup, where they finished runners-up to Australia.
