Karachi: In-form Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez on Thursday, returned to Pakistan's 15-member squad for the Test series against Sri Lanka - starting in the United Arab Emirates next week.

Hafeez has scored three centuries in four one-day internationals in the ongoing series against Sri Lanka. The 33-year-old was previously dropped from the Test side for the home series against South Africa in October.
