The 30-year-old last played international cricket in January 2017 as he was banned for five years, with two-and-a-half years suspended, for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in the 2017 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
He has since made his domestic comeback and has accumulated 423 runs in five Quaid-e-Azam Trophy matches for Sindh, which includes a century and three fifties, at an average of 42.30.
