Pakistan selectors have named senior batsman Muhammad Yousuf in their 16-man squad for a triangular one-day series in Bangladesh from June 8.
India and Bangladesh are the other teams in the competition, which ends on June 14. Yousuf had not been considered for recent Twenty20 events and was also rested for part of a series against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. "We have picked the best possible squad for what would be a tough tournament," chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed told Reuters.
"We have also picked a few young players to give them exposure."
Selectors have called up left arm pacer Wahab Riaz and batsman Nomanullah, who made their one-day debuts recently.
Shoaib Malik (Capt), Salman Butt, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Muhammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal, Muhammad Asif, Umar Gul, Sohail Tanvir, Rao Iftkhar, Wahab Riaz, Nomanullah, Fawad Alam, Bazid Khan.
