Uniting Forces: Army Collaboration To Boost Pakistan Cricketers’ Six-Hitting

The biggest cricket carnival of the 20th World Cup is just around the corner. The mega-showpiece event is all set to take place in the USA and West Indies in the month of June.

On the other hand, Pakistan cricket is all set to go under army training for 10 days, from March 25 to April 8. The camp is scheduled to take place just after the completion of the ongoing Pakistan Super League.

As per the reports, the Pakistan Cricket Board is not very happy with the fitness of the players and their inability to clear the boundaries with ease. The camp has been organized in Kakul in spite of the busy cricket schedule of Pakistan before the T20 World Cup.

Speaking about the camp, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Naqvi said, “When I was watching the matches in Lahore, I don’t think a single one of you hit a six that went into the stands. Whenever a six like that was hit, I used to think a foreign player must have hit it. I have asked the board to make a plan that gets every player’s fitness up to speed. You’ll have to make a proper effort for that.

Naqvi further stated That We have New Zealand coming up, then Ireland, England, and the T20 World Cup. I wondered, ‘When will we train?’ but there was no time. However, we’ve found a window where we’ve organized a camp in Kakul (the military academy) from March 25 to April 8. The Pakistan Army will be involved in your training, and hopefully, they’ll help you out.”

This camp will be compulsory for all the players leading into the World Cup in spite of playing continuous cricket from their Australia tour.
Before the World Cup, Pakistan is scheduled to play a series against New Zealand, Ireland, and England.

It will be quite interesting to see how the players react to the busy schedule, as it will not provide them with adequate rest, which they need before going into the 20th World Cup.
