Paceman Umar Gul and allrounder Yasir Arafat have been ruled out of the cricket Twenty20 World Cup due to injuries in a double blow for Pakistan.

Arafat sustained calf injury while Gul injured his shoulder during an extended training camp at Lahore.

Chief selector Mohsin Khan announced on Sunday that fast bowlers Mohammad Sami and uncapped 6-foot-8 Mohammad Irfan will replace the injured players.

Pakistan is in Group A with Australia and Bangladesh for next month's T20 World Cup in the Caribbean.
