Malik's bowling form in the two T20 matches apparently won him a recall to the ODI squad after nearly two years even as he failed with the bat twice.
The announcement of the squad came just a few minutes after Pakistan wrapped up the two-match T20 series with a nail-biting last over win at the jam-packed Gaddafi stadium last night.

The selectors have dropped batsman Fawad Alam, all-rounder Saad Nasim, young opener Sami Aslam and spinner Zulfiqar Babar.
The selectors also ignored the claims of batsman Umar Akmal, who played in both T20 games which marked the return of international cricket to Pakistan after six years.

However, opener Ahmed Shahzad made a comeback while the selectors also decided to test out uncapped Immad Wasim, batsman Babar Azam and recalled all-rounders, Hammad Azam and
Anwar Ali.
ODI Squad: Azhar Ali (C), Muhammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shahzad, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Muhammad Rizwan, Sarfraz Ahmed (VC), Anwar Ali, Hammad Azam, Immad
Wasim, Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz, Muhammad Sami, Junaid Khan.
