Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif have both been named in Pakistan's 30-man preliminary squad for the inaugural Twenty20 World Championship, which takes place in South Africa in September.
Shoaib and Asif last week escaped sanction from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) after failing drugs tests in 2006. Both men missed the recent World Cup in the Caribbean through injury, and without them to spearhead the campaign, Pakistan slumped to a humiliating first-round exit at the hands of the Associate nation, Ireland.
The squad - which will be captained by Inzamam-ul-Haq's successor, Shoaib Malik - will be trimmed to 15 names in August.
Squad Shoaib Malik (capt), Shahid Afridi, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Yasir Hameed, Fawad Alam, Salman Butt, Imran Nazir, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Asif, Umar Gul, Rao Iftikhar, Imran Farhat, Khurram Manzoor, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Hafeez, Misbah-ul-Haq, Naveed Latif, Faisal Iqbal, Shahid Yousuf, Yasir Arafat, Sohail Tanveer, Zulqarnain Haider, Mohammad Irshad, Najaf Shah, Danish Kaneria, Abdur Rehman.
