Lahore: Pakistan recalled dashing left-handed opener Saeed Anwar and wicketkeeper Moin Khan in a 30-strong squad of probables for next year’s World Cup.
Anwar, 34, was dropped for last month’s series against Australia and the on-going tour of Zimbabwe, raising doubts over his career. Moin, a former captain, has not played for Pakistan since March last year.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials said the list of 30 probables will be cut short next month and a final team of 15 is likely to be announced before the deadline of December 30 set by the Cup organisers.
Taufeeq Umer, Salim Elahi, Imran Nazir, Imran Farhat, Saeed Anwar, Shadab Kabir, Younis Khan, Yousuf Youhana, Inzamam-Ul-Haq, Misbah-Ul-Haq, Naved Latif, Faisal Iqbal, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Moin Khan, Rashid Latif, Azhar Mahmood, Abdul Razzaq, Rana Naveed-Ul-Hasan, Yasir Arafat, Shahid Afridi, Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Waqar Younis, Mohammed Sami, Abdul Rauf, Mohammed Zahid, Fazl-E-Akbar, Saqlain Mushtaq, Danish Kaneria.
Grant Flower fined
Zimbabwe’s Grant Flower has been fined and warned over his future conduct after using obscene language during the one-day series against Pakistan.
Flower was reported following his outburst after dismissing Pakistan batsman Taufeeq Umar for 68 during the third match of the series in Harare on Wednesday. Flower was docked half his match fee after a hearing by match referee Clive Lloyd.
