Tayyab Tahir has been dropped from the 17-member squad as 'travelling reserve' due to Saud Shakeel's inclusion in the squad. Tahir made it to the team after doing well for Karachi Kings in PSL 2023 and scoring a century against India A in the final of the Emerging Men's Asia Cup. But even before the start of the Asia Cup, he was dropped from the team. However, if any player gets hurt then Tahir can get a chance.

He scored an inning of 208 runs in the Test series against Sri Lanka last month. But 27-year-old Shakeel has not been able to do a great job in ODIs.
