Training and general fitness, Amir and Wasim among 29 Pakistani cricketers ready for Army training camp

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's international cricketers will join the army for a two-week fitness training camp to prepare for the upcoming limited-overs tours and Twenty20 World Cup.

Fast bowler Mohammad Amir and all-rounder Imad Wasim were among the 29 cricketers selected by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday to participate in the March 26-April 8 camp in Kahul, Abbottabad.

Amir and Wasim are ready to come out of international break and select themselves till the T20 World Cup in America and the Caribbean in June.

Pakistan is scheduled to play five T20Is in New Zealand next month and will play T20I series in Ireland and England ahead of the T20 World Cup starting on June 2.

The Pakistan Super League T20 tournament concluded last week.

The camp, which is being held in association with the Pakistan Army, will focus on team building and will aim to improve the physical and mental strength of the players and „ensure that they are in the best shape to face the challenges ahead,” the PCB said.

„The players will undergo a comprehensive training regime tailored to enhance their fitness levels, agility, leadership, strategic thinking and overall performance on the field,” the PCB said in a statement.

This is not the first time that Pakistan's top cricketers have attended a training camp in Kahul. In 2016, the national team led by Misbah-ul-Haq held a camp there before flying to England for a Test series.
