A pool of 36 probables has been announced to participate in the month-long summer camp at the Gaddafi Stadium starting from May 6. The focus of the camp is on preparing for the upcoming tours and for the 2015 World Cup. Taufiq Umar, Mohammad Sami and Yasir Hameed have been recalled for the camp while Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik have been omitted from the list. The camp will be supervised by the coaching staff of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), headed by Mohammad Akram, as the PCB is currently hunting for national coaches.

Talking to APP, Miandad said he also don’t understand why the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recalled the long-time discarded players in the camp. “It is time to have a permanent squad now,” he said.

Miandad also said that the summer camp won’t do any good rathera tournament had been organized and those players performing betterย  should be picked for upcoming tours and World Cup 2015. “A player at this stage doesn’t need to train in camps as he should be practicing himself to remain fully fit,” he said.

Miandad said the month long camp would damage the player’s fitness and can make them pale due to the extreme hot weather. “Summer camps are kept in games like swimming and other indoor games but not cricket,” he said.

Miandad said a month-long tournament should have been held instead of a camp. “Summer camps were never organized at times when we used to play,” he said adding no players performance can be judged in a camp.

Miandad said he is also surprised that the PCB had not yet even hired the coaches for the national team and have announced a summer camp.

“The PCB should have hired them first and then held the camp if they were so eager to do so,” he added.
