Close on the heels of Abdul Razzaq's inclusion in the Pakistan team for the Twenty20 World Cup, the PCB is all set to select Mohammad Yousuf and Rana Naved in the Sri Lanka-bound squad after the duo's resignation from the rebel Indian Cricket league.
Sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed that it had got clearance from the International Cricket Council to select the two players as when required.
"We had to get permission from the technical committee of the Twenty20 World Cup to include Abdul Razzaq in the team in place of injured Yasir Arafat. So we decided to also get prior clearance for Yousuf and Rana with the Sri Lanka tour coming up," one source said.
Pakistan will embark on Sri Lanka tour from June 27 to play three Tests, five one-day internationals and a one-off Twenty20 match.
And Yousuf and Rana are both expected to join Razzaq in the national team for the tour.
