Mohammad Amir missed the first IRE vs PAK game due to visa issues. The pacer, however, has joined the team ahead of the second game and will be available for the game. He is likely to replace Abbas Afridi in the XI. Afridi although picked two wickets in the game was experienced. With Amir being a seasoned campaigner, it will allow the team to have a threatening bowling lineup and he along with Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah can dominate the opposition. 

Abrar Ahmed in place of Shadab Khan 

Shadab Khan has been struggling with both bat and ball for Pakistan for a while now. He had a horrible outing in the first IRE vs PAK game as well. The leg-spinner gave away 54 runs in his 4 overs and bagged a golden duck with the bat. Pakistan are struggling with their spin department and including Abrar Ahmed in the team might change the fortunes for them. Abrar being a mystery spinner could be handy in the middle.
