Late-bloomer Patel, 30, was in line to make his global debut in the Test series between the same nations next month in the UAE.

The green shirts whitewashed the Australian cricket team with a 3-0 in the T20 series by winning all three games with record margins of 66, 11 and 32 runs, respectively.

Meanwhile, New Zealand also announced its team for the series against Pakistan, Cricinfo reported.

Top-ranked Pakistan have retained the same 15-member squad that swept Australia 3-0 for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand.

The Pakistan-New Zealand three-match T20I series is set to be an absorbing affair. Ajaz will be supplement spinner to Ish Sodhi in the matches to be played at Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Pakistan next plays New Zealand in three Twenty20 Internationals, three ODIs and three Tests, starting with the first Twenty20 in Abu Dhabi Wednesday.

"It's no secret that spin is crucial in this part of the world and with the wickets on the slower side, we've taken the option of a second spinner to bring our squad up to 14-players", Stead told the ICC.

New Zealand head coach Gary Stead highlighted the importance of the spinners while playing in the sub-continent and went on to say that Ajaz Patel must've got the hold of the conditions.
