The Kakul training camp was “highly successful” and it strengthened unity among players, Babar Azam

On Sunday, Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam expressed satisfaction with the training camp held at the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul, labeling it a resounding success. He noted that the camp played a significant role in fostering camaraderie among the players and enhancing their physical and mental resilience.

Babar’s remarks were conveyed through a press release by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). The camp, conducted in collaboration with the army, aimed to prepare the players for upcoming fixtures and tournaments, including the home T20I series against New Zealand and the ICC T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies. A total of 29 players, including Babar, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi, participated in the camp, alongside recently unretired players Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir.

The PCB highlighted that the players underwent rigorous training sessions encompassing fitness, agility, leadership, strategic thinking, and overall performance enhancement. They received guidance from seasoned trainers and coaches. Babar noted that it was his third experience of such a boot camp and emphasized the significance of team-building activities and lectures in enhancing performance.

He underscored that cricket-specific drills took a backseat during the camp, with the primary focus placed on physical conditioning, fostering teamwork, and bolstering mental fortitude. Babar expressed optimism that the camp would elevate the team’s performance while mitigating the risk of injuries. Other players, such as Naseem Shah and Imad, also lauded the camp’s emphasis on physical fitness and recognized its potential benefits during matches.
