Karachi. Pakistan has rested veteran spinner Imad Wasim and aggressive hitter Asif Ali for the first T20 International against Bangladesh to be held in Mirpur on Friday. Senior hitter Mohammad Hafeez has also been left out of the 12-man squad announced Thursday for the opener of the three-game T20I series. Hafeez decided to withdraw from the tour.
