Pakistan have named Rahat Ali as the replacement for the injured Junaid Khan, a fellow left-arm seamer, in their World Cup squad.

Junaid, 25, was ruled out of the tournament earlier this week because of a hamstring injury.

Rahat, 26, played his only one-day international in 2012, but has appeared in 11 Tests in the last two years.

Pakistan begin their World Cup campaign against arch rivals India in Adelaide on Sunday, 15 February.
