LAHORE - After their World Cup flops, opening batsman Nasir Jamshed and the erratic Umar Akmal are likely to be excluded from Pakistan squad for Bangladesh which the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s selection committee is expected to finalise today (Friday). Under the chief selector Haroon Rasheed, the selection committee will also get suggestions from captains of all the three formats during their meeting here at the Gaddafi Stadium. It is expected that the one-day international (ODI) squad will be the same which played the World Cup except Nasir and Umar who will most likely miss the Bangladesh trip.

During the World Cup, Umar Akmal could score only 164 runs in seven matches with an average of 23.42, while Nasir Jamshed managed to score just five runs in three matches. Left-arm pace bowler Sohail Tanvir may also be dropped despite giving a good performance in the Twenty20 format against New Zealand in December 2014.

The top PCB officials’ meeting is also on the card regarding devising new central contracts for the players. Pakistan team will play two Test matches, three one-day Internationals and one Twenty20 international against Bangladesh, for which the team's training camp is to commence from April 6.
