Pakistan have dropped senior batsman Younus Khan from the list of 30 probable players announced for this year's ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday.
Champions Trophy 2013 Schedule and Time table
Younus, 35, was the only surprise omission and the decision probably signals the end of his one-day international career which has spanned 253 matches.
The former captain struggled in the recent one-day series in South Africa and has been out of form in this format of the game since last year.

Lahore: Pakistan on Monday axed Shahid Afridi from their 15-man squad for the Champions Trophy following the allrounder`s below-par performances in South Africa and a domestic competition.
The 33-year-old, who still holds the world record of fastest one-day century -- off 37 balls made against Sri Lanka in Nairobi in 1996 -- has not taken a single wicket in his last six one-day internationals.
Pakistan 15 men Squad: Misbah-ul Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Imran Farhat, Asad Shafiq, Abdul Rehman, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal (wicket-keeper), Umar Amin, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Saeed Ajmal, Asad Ali, Ehsan Adil, Wahab Riaz.
