Mohammad Amir will be absent against England for both Pakistan and Pakistan A in the United Arab Emirates.
Amir, available again to play for his country after serving his ban for spot-fixing but featuring in just nine Twenty20 matches so far this year, was never likely to be in the frame to return to Test cricket yet.
There had been speculation, however, that the 23-year-old left-arm pace bowler might be included in two warm-up matches for the A team against Alastair Cook's tourists early next month.

Amir was one of three Pakistanis - then captain Salman Butt and seamer Mohammad Asif the other two - to serve time in prison and long bans from cricket for their roles in the spot-fixing scam to bowl no-balls to order in the Lord's Test against England in 2010.
Amir, just 18 at the time, had previously become the youngest bowler to reach 50 Test wickets.
Pakistan's selectors, who have also named two limited-overs squads to travel to Zimbabwe, have left one place open in the list of names to face England in three Tests.
They intend to add one of two left-arm spinners - Zafar Gohar and Mohammad Ashgar - to complete a squad of 16, depending which one impresses most in the two warm-up matches in Sharjah.
