Pakistan Cricket Board has invited 26 cricketers for a Women High Performance Camp in Multan.

LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board has invited 26 cricketers for a Women High Performance Camp in Multan.

The 25-day camp will begin on May 29 and conclude on June 22 during which they will undergo skills and fitness training at the Inzamam-ul-Haq High Performance Centre and will play seven practice matches.

This camp will provide quality facilities to the national women’s team to continue their preparation for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers later this year and the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in early 2022.  

The camp will be held in a bio-secure environment. The players and support staff will undergo pre-arrival Covid-19 tests. Those testing negative will assemble at the National High Performance Centre in Lahore for their departure to Multan.

The players and support staff will be tested on their arrival in Multan and will undergo isolation. Those who test negative will commence training in groups from 31 May. The groups will be allowed to train together as a unit subject to testing negative for the third time in the 4 June test.

National Women’s Chief Selector Urooj Mumtaz said the PCB continues to invest in the women’s game and provide the desired platform to women cricketers to continue their preparations in a competitive environment for the upcoming ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier and the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup next year.  

“Our players enter this camp on the back of an intense training camp in Karachi that concluded earlier this month. During the camp, they were pushed to their limits for improvement in all facets of the game. The group remains focused and is eager to continue to train with the same intensity and making the most of this opportunity, as we collectively aim to become strong contenders on the world stage,” she said.
