ALL ROUNDER MUHAMMAD HAFEEZ KO ONE DAY KE LIYA BULA LIYA

The 36-year-old was left out of the 15-man squad but was handed a late call up.

“The selection committee received a request from Pakistan team management comprising coach Mickey Arthur and captain Azhar Ali for sending Hafeez to Australia for the one-day series,” said a Pakistan Cricket Board release.

Hafeez scored two half-centuries and took 11 wickets in the recent national one-day cup in Pakistan.

He was not selected for the Test series after a poor performance against England last summer.

In November he cleared a bowling action test after serving a 12-month suspension.

His action was deemed illegal for a second time in July 2014, resulting in a suspension.

Australia thrashed Pakistan by 220 runs in the third and final Test in Sydney on Saturday to complete a 3-0 whitewash.

It was the fourth time Pakistan have been whitewashed in Australia following routs in 1999, 2004 and 2010.

The first of the five ODIs will be played in Brisbane on Friday
