Test and ODI captain Misbah-ul Haq was dropped from Pakistan's provisional 30-man squad for September's World Twenty20 [ Images ] in Sri Lanka [ Images ], but the PCB recalled Kamran Akmal after the wicketkeeper-batsman was cleared of suspicions of spot-fixing.
Misbah was also not considered for the two Twenty20s against Sri Lanka last month, which resulted in Mohammad Hafeez [ Images ] leading the side.
As for Kamran, who has not played international cricket since last year's World Cup, he had claimed that he has a letter from the ICC [ Images ] that no inquiry is pending against him.
Kamran's selection was approved after he appeared before PCB's integrity committee last week.
Kamran's name was mentioned in the spot-fixing trial involving three Pakistani Test players -- Salman Butt [ Images ], Mohammad Asif [ Images ] and Mohammad Aamer [ Images ] -- who were banned and jailed for bowling deliberate no-balls during the Lord's Test against England [ Images ] in 2010.
The squad: Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shahzad, Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed, Imran Nazir, Shahzaib Hasan [ Images ], Awais Zia, Sharjeel Khan, Umar Akmal [ Images ], Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Shoaib Malik [ Images ], Rameez Raja, Shahid Afridi [ Images ], Hammad Azam, Abdul Razzaq, Umar Gul, Mohammad Sami [ Images ], Sohail Tanvir [ Images ], Yasir Arafat, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Aizaz Cheema, Anwar Ali, Saeed Ajmal [ Images ], Abdur Rehman, Raza Hasan, Sarfraz Ahmed, Kamran Akmal, Shakeel Ansar.
