The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday shifted the training and fitness camp for the national squad from Quetta to Lahore because of recent floods in Balochistan, a PCB official said.
Zakir Khan, PCB's director of cricket operations, said that the camp - the second of the three camps organised to improve the players' fitness levels - had to be relocated keeping in view the current situation in Balochistan where floods have left scores of people dead and thousands homeless. The camp was scheduled from July 10 to July 23.
Instead, the 22 players called up for the camp would now head to Lahore. The camp's duration and dates have remained unchanged. The first camp took place in Abbottabad where the players were supervised by army trainers.
The third and final camp is scheduled to take place in the coastal city of Karachi from July 25.
