Pakistan finished runner-up to India in a heart breaking finish at the ICC World Twenty20 2007, but in 2009 Shahid Afridi starred in the side's title triumph over Sri Lanka in the final at Lord's.
In 2010, Pakistan was knocked out by Michael Hussey's assault on Saeed Ajmal in the semi-final.
Pakistan returns to ICC World Twenty20 this time around under a new captain, Mohammed Hafeez.
Himself an accomplished all-rounder, Hafeez has a number of experienced players like Afridi, Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik to bank on this time around.
Another experienced pair making a comeback this time around is wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal and fast bowler Mohammad Sami. The return of swashbuckling opener Imran Nazir is another exciting opportunity for Pakistan at this tournament.
