Pakistani team sweats it out ahead of Sri Lanka series during Training Camp
The Pakistani team held extensive field exercises during training camp at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Thursday, ahead of the series of limited exercises against Sri Lanka.
Pakistan’s field standards have dropped a bit, which was evident during their 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup campaign, in the recent past, but the Green Men seem willing to fix things over the next home assignment against the islanders.
Head coach and bosses Misbahul Haq had named 20 probables for the training ground, which started at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore on 18 September.
The camp is preparing to prepare the team for the next one-day international series (ODI) and T20 International against Sri Lanka, which will take place from 27 September to 9 October.

On Saturday, September 21, at 11.30 am at the far end, Gaddafi Stadium, Misbahul Haq will announce the two squadrons. The ODI side will move to Karachi on September 24, where the first ODI will be played on September 27.
Previously, the Sri Lanka cricket board said it would continue its tour of Pakistan despite fears that terrorist attacks may target players during the six-match visit.
Sri Lankan Cricket Secretary Mohan de Silva said they received the approval of the defence ministry to depart for Pakistan.
The six-game tour was suspended last week after The Sri Lankan Prime Minister’s office warned the board that it had general information about a possible attack on its players.
