The Pakistani selectors have recalled paceman Mohammad Asif but omitted veteran all-rounder Abdul Razzaq from their 15-man squad for next month's Champions Trophy.
Asif last played for Pakistan in April last year before he was banned by the Pakistani board in after testing positive for the banned substance nandrolone.
Umar Akmal, wicketkeeper Kamran's 19-year-old brother, who was Pakistan's highest scorer in the ODIs in Sri Lanka, and Imran Nazir, who made his return to international cricket after quitting the ICL, are also part of the squad along with offspinner Saeed Ajmal and allrounder Fawad Alam.
