Pakistanâ€™s bowling coach Waqar Younis on Tuesday joined the training camp under progress in Lahore in preparations for the tour of England starting from the end of this month.
Waqar was unable to join the camp when it got underway the other day because he was unwell.
Young fast bowler Mohammad Asif also reported at the training camp being held under the supervision of Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer.
Asif, 23, was allowed to miss a conditioning camp that preceded the ongoing training exercise as he was playing in county cricket for English side Leicestershire. He was retained in the 16-man squad for the England when it was announced last week.
The Pakistani players, apart from their routine training, are also getting fielding tips from former South African Test player Jonty Rhodes at the camp. Rhodes was hired by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as a fielding consultant for a brief two-week stint to help bring some improvement in the playersâ€™ fielding abilities ahead of the marathon tour of England.
