Yasir Shah, 36, has been included in the 18-man squad. His all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz has also been included in the team. Previously, the all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz was included in the series against Australia, but he was unable to play in that series due to injury.

Yasir Shah played his last Test in August 2021. Pakistan had won the series in 2015 on Sri Lankan soil. Yasir Shah performed brilliantly in that series. He took 24 wickets at an average of 19.33 in that series against Sri Lanka. Pakistan chief coach Mohammad Wasim said the return of Yasir Shah has strengthened our bowling game. He proved to be a match winner for us on the last tour of Sri Lanka.
