BRISBANE: Pakistan has decided not to include Younis Khan in the group-match against Zimbabwe on Saturday. The decision to drop Khan was made by the team management on Friday.

While Khan was present in the practice session and even came to bat, it has been decided that he will not be part of the squad and Rahat Ali will replace him.

Surprisingly, Sarfaraz Ahmed will not be included in the squad while Umar Akmal who dropped two very important catches in the last two fixtures; will be part of the team.

Pakistan is likely to open against Zimbabwe with Nasir Jamshed and Ahmed Shehzad.
