ESPNcricinfo staff1 Minute Read

Pakistan has made two changes in the squad of 14 for the Women's World T20 in September, from the one that won tri-nation women's one-day series in Ireland last week - rookie fast bowler Javeria Rauf has been brought in, while Masooma Junaid has been left out.

Rabiya Shah, who was part of the Ireland tour, has also been axed while allrounder Sana Mir will continue to lead the side.

Pakistan have been placed in Group A along with England, Australia and India and they open their campaign against England in Galle on September 27.

Asian champions Pakistan were knocked out in the group stages in the 2010 World T20 in the West Indies. The team would look to capitalise on their recent successes, as they won the tri-series besides a one-off one-dayer against Bangladesh.

Team: Sana Mir (captain), Bismah Maroof, Syeda Nain Fatima Abidi, Javeria Wadood, Nida Dar, Marina Iqbal, Syeda Batool Fatima Naqvi (wk), Qanita Jalil, Asmavia Iqbal Khokar, Sumaiya Siddiqi, Elizabath Barkat, Sadia Yusaf, Nahida Bibi, Javeria Rauf.
