Pakistan has announced its 15-man squad for the 2015 Cricket World Cup on Wednesday.
The squad contains two openers, four middle order batsmen, five pace bowlers, one spinner, two all-rounders and a wicket-keeper/batsman.
As expected, Misbah ul-Haq has been chosen to lead the Pakistanis in Australia and New Zealand, however the big surprise was the inclusion of seam bowler Sohail Khan who last represented Pakistan in 2011.
Shoiab Maqsood, Junaid Khan and Ehsan Adil have all recovered from injuries and will feature in the tournament, while Pakistan fans will be delighted with the presence of Shahid Afridi who will play in his fifth World Cup.
Pakistan opens its campaign against arch-rivals India at the Adelaide Oval on February 15.
