Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn return to the South Africa T20 squad for the two-match series against Pakistan to be played in the United Arab Emirates next month.

"Hashim is a world-class player across all the formats," commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Andrew Hudson in a media release on Friday. "His experience and stability at the top of the order are qualities that we believe will strengthen the squad in a key area.

Amla played the last of his 15 T20 International matches at the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka just over a year ago before taking a break from this format at his own request.
