The two-time world champion will then travel to Barbados to face England in five T20Is at the Kensington Oval from January 22 to 30.
Pollard, 34, recently missed the tour of Pakistan after failing to recover from a hamstring injury during the T20 World Cup.
“We have tried to maintain the normal makeup of the team from the tour of Pakistan before Christmas, with the captain and some senior players coming back,” head coach Phil Simmons said.
“COVID-19 has also played a part in the final make-up of the squad. Over the next few months young players from both the teams will face challenges not only to improve their skills but also to maintain that attitude and desire Pakistan is falling.
“We need to start the year on a high level. And we know that Ireland and England both have very good teams, so we expect a very strong challenge as we prepare for the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2023. Let’s improve and build our chances of qualification. T20 squad for the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022.”
