Former Pakistan ODI captain Azhar Ali has been dropped from the ODI squad for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.
The 32-year-old stepped down from captaincy after the team’s dismal performance in the five-match series against Australia earlier this year.
The chairman of the selection committee Inzamamul Haq announced the 15-member squad for the T20Is and 16-member squad for the ODIs on Wednesday.
Middle-order batsman Umar Akmal was dropped after failing the fitness test, Inzamam said while addressing the media at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.
Fast-bowler Mohammad Amir is rested for the T20Is, whereas left-arm spinner Mohammad Asghar is included in the 50-over format.
