Lahore [Pakistan], March 30 (ANI): As many as 27 women cricketers from Pakistan will undergo skills and fitness training in Karachi in the emerging women’s camp, which begins on April 3.
Over the course of the 14-day camp, these 27 players will train under the supervision of the coaching staff of the women’s national cricket team namely David Hemp, the head coach, Arshad Khan, the bowling coach, and Drikus Saaiman, the strength and condition coach, along with academy coaches Mohsin Kamal and Naveed Anjum.
“This camp serves an opportunity to the national team coaches to observe up and coming cricketers and provide them awareness about the desired skills and fitness levels to thrive at the apex level,” the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in an official statement.
The camp will be held under a strict bio-secure environment and the players and support staff will be stationed at a local hotel.
In accordance with the PCB’s Covid-19 protocols, all those involved in the camp will undergo two tests before their integration into the bio-secure environment. Their first tests will be held at their residence on March 31 and those who return negative tests will undergo second testing on April 3 upon their arrival in Karachi.
