Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has ruled himself out of the first Test against South Africa.
The veteran batsman was asked about his availability for the first Test against South Africa in Karachi on Monday.
However, he decided to turn down the chance to play for his country, citing personal reasons for his decision.
"I spoke to him and asked him about his availability," said chief selector Salahuddin Ahmed.
"But he said not to consider him for personal reasons.
"He will obviously be considered if he wants to play in the second match."
The 38-year-old relinquished his captaincy after Pakistan's World Cup exit, and he also retired from one-day internationals.
Inzamam has said that he wants to continue to play Test cricket, but has turned down the chance to figure in the opening Test despite needing just 21 more runs to overtake former captain Javed Miandad, who totalled 8,832, as his country's highest Test scorer.
MIsbah-ul-Haq has been rewarded for his performances at the World Twenty20 with a recall after four years to the Test side.
The 33-year-old last played a Test against Bangladesh in Karachi in August 2003 but was the highest scorer in the Twenty20 tournament in South Africa.
The prolific Mohammad Yousuf is restored to the squad after being left out for the Twenty20, and after recently turning down a move to the rebel International Cricket League by signing a central contract.
The second Test starts in Lahore on 8th October and will be followed by five one-day internationals.
Pakistan squad: Shoaib Malik (Capt), Salman Butt, Taufeeq Umar, Mohammad Hafeez, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Asif, Umar Gul, Faisal Iqbal, Yasir Hameed, Danish Kaneria, Abdul Rehman, Rao Iftikhar.
