Karachi: Pakistan on Wednesday recalled Younis Khan to their one-day international squad after a 16-month gap, giving the veteran batsman one last chance to press his claim for a place at next year's World Cup.

The 36-year-old was recalled to the 15-man squad for three one-day internationals on next month's tour of Sri Lanka, which opens with two Test matches.

Younis, who has played 253 ODIs, lost his place in the one-day side after a poor run of scores in the five-match series in South Africa in March last year.
