PCB to set up eight-day camp: Asia Cup

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to set up an eight-day training camp for the upcoming Asia Cup starting from September 3.
According to the proposed schedule, the players will undergo physical training in the morning session, whereas in the afternoon session, they will work on their batting, bowling and fielding skills at the Gaddafi Stadium.
The Men in Green will reach the United Arab Emirates (UAE) four days prior to the tournament. Currently, some of the Pakistan cricketers are spending time with their families and will regroup for the camp.
PCB officials are also mulling over the option of gathering players in Abbottabad two to three days prior to the eight-day training camp.
Sources closed to the selection committee have confirmed that all-rounder Imad Waseem, who is currently playing in Caribbean Premier League (CPL), is likely to earn a place in the camp.
