The Twenty20 series follows a three-match one-day series which Australia won 2-1.

Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez hoped a new format and some fresh players will help his team. Hafeez said off-spinner Saeed Ajmal will be the key player after taking ten wickets in the one-day series.

Pakistan will be boosted by the return of Umar Gul, allrounders Abdul Razzaq and Yasir Arafat, opener Imran Nazir and paceman Mohammad Sami in the T20 squad. However, Shahid Afridi is likely to miss the first and second match due to hand injury.

Pakistan: Mohammad Hafeez (captain), Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Asad Shafiq, Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Kamran Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanveer, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Raza Hasan, Yasir Arafat, Mohammad Sami.

Australia: George Bailey (captain), Shane Watson, Dan Christian, Pat Cummins, Xavier Doherty, Ben Hilfenhaus, Brad Hogg, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Cameron White, Alistair McDermott.
