The Trinbago Knight Riders have lost the services of Pakistan fast bowler Muhammad Hasnain.

The 19-year-old was called up on Monday by new Pakistan chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq for the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka.

However, the teenager will now ply in the ongoing Quaid e Azam Trophy, to prepare for the Sri Lanka series.

Hasnain has picked up six wickets in four matches for the Trinbago Knight Riders.
