Pakistan have left out experienced allrounder and former captain Shoaib Malik from the list of 30 probables for the 2011 World Cup



Malik had been under the scanner of the PCB's integrity committee and ultimately appears to have failed to gain clearance for selection.
Wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal, over whom there has been as much speculation, has, however, been selected.
Akmal was the subject of an ACSU notice earlier this year but has since asked for and received a written clearance from the ICC.
Malik has not been linked with any specific incident though he features regularly in the fevered speculation and gossip of Pakistan's cricket structure.
The world body extended the deadline for Pakistan from December 19 to January 5.
Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, provisionally suspended for their alleged role in the Lord's spot-fixing scandal, were never in the running for the squad.
"We are satisfied that we have selected the best squad from amongst the available players," chief selector Mohsin Khan said.
Squad: Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Taufiq Umar, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Yousuf, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Akmal, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Naveed Yasin, Kamran Akmal, Sarfraz Ahmed, Salman Ahmed, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Yasir Arafat, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Abdul Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Yasir Shah, Zulfiqar Babar, Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Tanveer, Tanvir Ahmed, Junaid Khan, Aizaz Cheema, Asad Ali
