Pakistan dropped Kamran Akmal Hafeez, Kamran for World XI series

Vastavam web: Pakistan has dropped experienced all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez and opener Kamran Akmal from the 16-member squad for the three-match Twenty20 series against a World XI side next month.Besides the duo, the national selectors have also left out senior pacer Wahab Riaz for the coming series with chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq insisting that recent form and fitness was taken into consideration while finalising the squad.The axing of Hafeez comes as a surprise as he has been a consistent playmaker for Pakistan in the ODI and T20 formats while Wahab would also have reason to complain as he enjoys a good strike rate in T20 matches.

The World XI led by South African Faf Du Plessis will be playing matches on September 12, 13 and 15 marking the return of international cricket to Pakistan
