Shoaib Malik, Akhtar included in Pakistani squad for Asia cup
The Pakistani selectors have sprung a surprise by getting Shoaib Akhtar in the Pakistan team for the Asia Cup. The Pakistani side will also have the services of Shoaib Malik, who was earlier banned by the PCB for an year, but had his ban over-turned by the independent enquiry.
Shahid Afridi is the captain and Salman Butt is the vice-captain of the side, whereas Shahzaib Hasan, Asad Shafiq and Umar Amin are two of the new faces. Imran Farhat will be the other opener, whereas Kamran Amal retains his spot as the wicket-keeper of the side.
Amongst fast bowers, there is Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Aamer, Akhtar and medium-pacer Abdul Razzaq in the side. The spinners include Afridi himself, along with Saeed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman.
