Pakistan recall Kamran Akmal

2:09 pm on 13 January 2011

Pakistan have recalled wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal to their squad for the six-match one-day series in New Zealand.

Akmal has not been picked for the national team since last year's tour of England.

The 53-Test and 123 one-day international veteran was recently cleared by the Pakistan Cricket Board following an investigation into his assets, bank accounts and recent activities.

All-rounder Shahid Afridi was retained as captain for the series starting on January 26.
