The 33-year-old paceman was ruled out of last month's two-Test series against Sri Lanka because of the knee injury which healed without surgery.

Pakistan play five one-day and a Twenty20 match against the world champions in Dubai and Abu Dhabi from April 22-May 7.

Squad: Younus Khan (capt), Salman Butt, Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shahzad, Shoaib Malik, Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal, Fawad Alam, Shoaib Akhtar, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Gul, Rao Iftikhar, Yasir Arafat, Saeed Ajmal
