Younus Khan: Returns for Pakistan to face West Indies

Sky Bet

Younus Khan, Umar Gul and Azhar Ali have been named in Pakistan's Test squad for two matches against West Indies.

Experienced middle-order batsman Younus and fast bowler Gul had been rested for the five one-day internationals in the Caribbean following Pakistan's World Cup semi-final loss to India.

But the pair have now returned, while middle-order batsman Ali - who last played for Pakistan against New Zealand in January - has also been included in the 15-man squad.

Misbah-ul-Haq has been selected as captain, while all-rounder Hammad Azam and left-arm paceman Junaid Khan, who made their ODI debuts against West Indies, have been retained for the Tests.

Mohammad Salman will make his Test debut in the series after being preferred to Adnan Akmal as the only wicketkeeper in the squad.

Guyana will host the first Test from May 12-16, with the second Test being played at St Kitts from May 20-24.

Pakistan squad: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Younis Khan, Taufeeq Umar, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Mohammad Salman (wkt), Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Umar Akmal, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Tanvir Ahmed, Junaid Khan, Hammad Azam
