Mohammad Yousuf Recalled For West Indies ODIs
Senior batsman Mohammad Yousuf has been recalled to the Pakistan squad for their One Day International series against the West Indies in Abu Dhabi later this month.
Yousuf, who was not considered for a Twenty20 four-nation tournament in Toronto last month, has been included in a 15-man squad for the matches on November 12th, 14th and 16th.
The squad also includes fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar and off-spinner Saeed Ajmal, whose exclusion from the side last month led to the resignation of chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed.
Selectors have also recalled Nasir Jamshed after the opener recovered from a bout of malaria.
Khalid Latif, Anwar Ali and Sohail Khan, who all made the trip to Toronto, were left out of the squad.
Shoaib Malik (Capt), Misbah-ul-Haq, Salman Butt, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal, Sohail Tanvir, Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, Rao Iftikhar, Fawad Alam, Abdur Rauf, Saeed Ajmal.
