Islamabad: Pakistan have dropped former captain Younis Khan and recalled wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal for the three-match one-day international series against Australia later this month.
Akmal has not played international cricket since last year's World Cup, and appeared before the Pakistan Cricket Board integrity committee last month.
Younis is apparently being left out after performing poorly with the bat against Sri Lanka in the one-day series last month.
