PCB Selects 29 Players For Army Fitness Training

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has extended invitations to 29 cricketers to partake in a fortnight-long physical conditioning camp, overseen by the Pakistan Army, at Kakul in Abbottabad. Commencing tomorrow, this camp holds significant importance in shaping the squad for several upcoming events, including the T20I home series against New Zealand, as well as tours to Ireland and England, along with the impending ICC Men’s T20I World Cup.

The PCB’s selection committee, comprising esteemed test cricketers such as Muhammad Yousaf, Wahab Riaz, Abdul Razzaq, and Asad Shafiq, will deliberate on whether to retain Shaheen Shah Afridi as captain or delegate the role to another candidate. This decision, as hinted by PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi, will be grounded on both technical prowess and the fitness levels of the players.
