Fast bowlers Mohammad Wasim Jr and Shahnawaz Dahani, wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Haris and legspinner Zahid Mahmood will all be hoping to make their ODI debuts in the three-match series, which begins on 17 September.
The three matches are all part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League.
Wasim Jr, 20 years old, made his T20I debut during Pakistan's recent tour of the West Indies, taking two wickets across the four matches.
