Inzamam says turns down Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal for England ODI's, T20's
LAHORE - Pakistan national team chief selector Inzamamul Haq is not willing to recall opener Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal for the forthcoming limited overs series in England.

"Shehzad and Umar, both  the players were dropped on disciplinary grounds after the World T20, do not figure in the selectors’ list for the one-day series and T20 international in England,"  said sources close to the selectors.

“The selectors have shortlisted 30 probables and these include mostly young players and there is no room for Shahzad or Umar,” one source told the Press Trust of India. “They want to give new and young players maximum exposure in T20 cricket and are also considering resting experienced all-rounder Shoaib Malik for the T20 match in England.”

Malik himself announced last year he was limiting himself to just ODI and T20 cricket after scoring a double hundred in a Test against England in the UAE.

He said Inzamam had been very impressed with the performance of some of the youngsters playing for the ‘A’ side in England.

While opener Shehzad is cooling his heels in Pakistan, Umar Akmal has been busy playing in English national T20 league and now in the Caribbean Premier League.

The selectors have kept left-arm pacers Muhammad Irfan and Sohail Tanvir for the limited over series after both were ignored for the Test series.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah has also been included in the shortlist of 30 probables which also includes Sharjeel Khan, Khurrum Manzoor, Khalid Latif, Emad Wasim, Zafar Gohar and youngsters Saud Shakeel, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Muhammad Asghar.
