Afghanistan batsman Asghar Stanikzai has been recalled into the ODI squad for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe.

Fellow batsman Gulbadin Naib has also been included in the 16-man squad, which will be captained by Mohammad Nabi.

Wicketkeeper Shafiqullah also retained his place in the side, which means that Mohammad Shahzad misses out.
