Pakistan has dropped experienced all-rounder Abdul Razzaq for the forthcoming one-dayers in India, the first bilateral series between the two countries since 2007.

Fellow all-rounder Shahid Afridi, 32 years old was also dropped for the one-dayers but retained his place in the Twenty20 squad.

Left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar was picked for the one-dayers and Twenty20 internationals while fellow rookie, paceman Asad Ali, was selected for the shorter format only.

India and Pakistan will play three one-dayers and two Twenty20 games in the series. The first is a T20 match in Bangalore on Dec. 25.
