Pakistan announce 15-member squad for World Cup

Lahore (Staff Report): Chief selector Inzimamul Haq on Thursday announced 15-member World Cup squad.

Fast bowler Muhammad Aamir has been dropped from the squad.

"Aamir is an experienced bowler but unfortunately, his performance has not been as per par from last one year. I pray that he gets his rhythm back as seen in Champions Trophy final," Inzimam said while addressing a press conference.

All-rounder Muhammad Hafeez's availability in the squad is subjected to his fitness, said the chief selector. Meanwhile, Abid Ali has been chosen as a third opener in the squad.
