Razzaq back in ODI squad

Pakistan have named their ODI squad for the forthcoming series with England, recalling allrounder Abdul Razzaq. There also recalls for batsman Yasir Hameed and allrounder Yasir Arafat, who replaces the banned Shahid Afridi.

Arafat took 9 wickets with his medium pace against England in a tour match, and has played in England with the Scottish Saltires. Yasir Hameed is a possibility to open, should Malik and Butt not be persisted with.

Absent from the 3rd test, Younis Khan returns to the squad after the death of his brother, while Mohammad Asif, uncapped in ODIs, is retained from the test squad.
