Karachi: Oct 2, 2011

National selectors named experienced all-rounder Abdul Razzaq the captain of the Pakistan squad for the Super Sixes tournament to be held in Hong Kong later this month.

Razzaq, who has been ignored for national selection since the World Cup and was today not considered for the Test series against Sri Lanka, will lead a strong seven member team for the Hong Kong event.

Besides Razzaq, the selectors also accommodated other national team players, Umar Akmal, Sohail Khan, Sohail Tanvir, Yasir Shah, Hammad Azam and newcomer Sharjeel Khan in the Super sixes squad.

Pakistan have featured regularly in the Hong Kong sixes event which is held annually with teams from all Test playing nations taking part in it.

Umar, Sohail, Tanvir and Yasir had all toured Zimbabwe with the senior team in August but were dropped for the Test series against Sri Lanka in the UAE. (PTI)
