From the 15-player provisional squad, which was announced on April 18, Pakistan selectors have replaced Abid Ali, Faheem Ashraf and Junaid Khan.
The thrashing by English batsmen in a T20 International and two ODIs has alarmed the selectors, who were initially not keen on picking Amir for the showpiece owing to lack of form.
Amir is the only change in the Pakistan's 15-man squad that whitewashed New Zealand and Australia 3-0 in the United Arab Emirates last year.
Keeping in mind the fast pitches in South Africa, the squad includes only one specialist spinner in Shadab Khan, while Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali and Usman Shinwari are the three fast bowlers along with Amir.
Amir has been left out of the squad since before the Asia Cup in the UAE in September, and was not considered for the Test series against Australia and New Zealand, also in the UAE.
Besides Maqsood there were no other surprises apart from left-arm pacer Amir again failing to win the selectors' confidence. He was ignored for the just-concluded series against Australia which Pakistan won.
