Pak vs WI: Training camp shifted to Lahore

Pak vs WI: Training camp shifted to Lahore

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shifted the training camp to Lahore from Rawalpindi ahead of Pakistan vs West Indies home series and has made no statement in regard. Seeking the current political situation in the capital of Islamabad, the board has no option, but to shift the training camp. Reportedly, the venue for Pak vs WI series has also been shifted to Multan.

Notably, Pakistan and West Indies are scheduled to play a three-match ODI series at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. However, the PCB revealed Multan Stadium as an alternative venue due to the upset political condition in Rawalpindi. It is pertinent to mention here that the three ODIs will take place on the 8th, 10th, and 12th of June.

As far as the political situation is concerned, former PM Imran Khan announced a long march toward Islamabad. The situation settled a day later, however, he has informed to return with 20-30 lac people if the current government doesn’t give an election date within six days.

As a consequence of the political war in Pakistan, the PCB also cancelled the second phase of the conditioning camp, which will now resume at HPC in Lahore on May 29th. Concerning the details of the Pak vs WI training camp, the board has decided to kick-start it from June 1st. The sixteen players, added to the squad including the participants of the T20 Vitality Blast, are requested to join the training camp.
