Pakistan's World Cup squad

Pakistan left out veteran batsman Mohammad Yousuf from their final 15-man squad for next month's World Cup hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi will lead the team.

With Yousuf's exclusion the squad is largely inexperienced, with only seven players having featured in previous World Cups.

Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Akhtar are the only survivors of Pakistan's runners-up finish in the 1999 tournament.

Pakistan will be without key players Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer who were all provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on charges of spot-fixing during team's tour to England last year.

A decision on their case is due on February 5 and the PCB last week said they can be included in the team if absolved.

Another player, Kamran Akmal, who was also under suspicion of match-fixing, was included after being reportedly cleared by the ICC, but all-rounder Shoaib Malik and leg-spinner Danish Kaneria failed to get clearance.

Pakistan, who won the World Cup title in 1992, are placed in Group A of the 14-team event to be played between February 19 to April 2. They open their campaign against Kenya at Hambantota on February 23.

Pakistan Squad: Shahid Afridi (C), Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Abdur Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Tanveer, Ahmed Shahzad

  1. Pakistani Squad looks very good but they should include the Mohammad Yousaf in their world cup squad then Pakistan can become a strong team against any opposition but lets see what will they do in the world cup 2011 and how they perform and i ask the selector plz announce Shahid khan Afridi as the caption of world cup 2011 Because he has good commanding ability and as a caption he can change the game towards his side at any stage .
