Pakistan recalls Afridi and Nazir for one-day series against South Africa

Pakistan cricket selectors recalled batsmen Shahid Afridi and Imran Nazir on Saturday for next month's five one-day internationals against South Africa.
Nazir, 25, is back in the team nearly 2 1/2 years after playing his last one-day international against Bangladesh in July 2004.
He has played in 61 limited-overs games and has scored 1,392 runs, including a century and eight half centuries.
"He has been in good form in the recent domestic cricket matches and that's why we have recalled him," chief selector Wasim Bari told reporters.
Afridi played in one of the five one-day internationals against the West Indies at home but struggled for runs.
All-rounder Abdul Razzaq, fast bowler Shabbir Ahmed and left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman will also join the team before the one-day series begins in South Africa at Centurion on Feb. 4.
