Pakistan recall Kamran Akmal for Twenty20 and ODI series with West Indies

Batsman Fakhar Zaman and legspinner Shadab Khan have been given their very first national call ups while veteran Asif Zakir is in line to make his ODI debut at the age of 33.

After a stellar domestic season Kamran Akmal has forced his way back into the limited overs squads for the tour of the West Indies.
