Pakistan camp begins without leading players

The conditioning camp for Pakistan’s tour of England got underway on the wrong foot on Thursday in Lahore.

With most of the players who are expected to actually make the cut for the 16-member final squad for England as well as national team’s coach Bob Woolmer missing, the camp would for all practical purposes, begin after two or three days.

The national selection committee had chosen 21 players to attend the fitness camp last week.

Most of the leading Pakistani players are presently either in Saudi Arabia for a couple of exhibition matches or in England playing county cricket.

“It’s a good idea to have a few practice matches during the camp,” Bari told ‘The News’ here in an interview.

“But to think that a player can stake a claim for a place in the national team on the basis of his performance in those games would be wrong,” he stressed.
