Karachi: Senior Pakistan players Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal do not feature in a list of 36 players selected for a month-long training camp to be held at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore starting on May 6.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) though has included a number of out-of-favour players like Nasir Jamshed, Yasir Hameed, Imran Farhat, Taufiq Umar, Faisal Iqbal and Mohammad Sami in an effort to build a better team for the 2015 World Cup. (It's Waqar vs Saqlain)
The new selection committee headed by former skipper Moin Khan and member Muhammad Akram, who is also head coach at the national cricket academy, said at a press conference here that the idea was to test the fitness of these players. (Captain should be liked by the team: Moin)
