All’s not well in PAK team? Ex-skipper drops truth bomb on Kakul camp

Former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif has dropped a huge claim about the team's training camp at the Army base in Kakul

Former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif has dropped a huge claim about the team’s training camp at the Army base in Kakul. Latif claims that there was tension among the players in the side and hence a camp was organized at an Army base in order to foster ‘team bonding.’ Pakistan cricketers were involved in a rigorous training camp that involved various drills, including ones to improve fitness of players.

The aftermath of the tedious camp saw many injury concerns for Pakistan. Despite the camp, Pakistan ended up drawing the T20I series against New Zealand 2-2. It is to be noted that Pakistan squared off against a second-string Kiwi side that was devoid of star players.

“See, the condition of the team was not looking very good… a little tension was visible within the team. They got a chance to stay together in an army training camp.
If there would have been any camp in Lahore or Karachi then everyone would have stayed on mobile. When the day would have ended, they would go to their rooms, use their mobile phones and in the morning come again,” the former wicketkeeper-batter told IANS in an exclusive chat.

“There were no mobile phones, no more distractions and everyone had to remain together in the army training, which helped in building the bonding among the players.
“I agree that cricket-specific training should be preferred. But the reason was that perhaps the team had some sort of tension and that is why they were sent for that training. To improve team bonding,” he added.
