Pakistan recalled Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad in a preliminary squad for this month’s tour of the west indies.

The 35-year-old Kamran has been reminding selectors of his scoring abilities for well over a year scoring 1,035 in the premier first class tournament and another 361 in the national one-day cup in the 2016-17 season.

Kamran, who played the last of his 154 one-day internationals in 2013 and his last Twenty20 in 2014, also finished as top run-getter with 353 runs in the Pakistan Super League.

Also recalled in the 31-man squad is opener Ahmed Shehzad who was part of Pakistan’s squad for last year’s world twenty20 held in India.

Shahzad finished as top scorer in the national one-day cup with 653 runs which earned him a recall.

The preliminary squad will train under head coach Mickey Arthur in a camp in Lahore from March 11 to 17 before leaving for the Caribbean three days later.

Pakistan play the first twenty20 international in Barbados on March 26. That will be followed by three one-day internationals and as many tests.
