Kakul: Pakistan’s finest cricketer and perhaps one of the greatest test match player the nation has seen Younis Khan is adamant that the fitness camp in Kakul will yield good results for Pakistan cricket team in the future.
While talking in a video interview Younis Khan said that this experience has been amazing and he will try his best to not let down the Pakistan Army and ensure that the team performs in accordance with the expectations of their trainers at the camp as they have pushed them a lot during the past few days and want our fitness to improve.
“Everyone had a lot of worries and queries when the fitness camp was organised for the national team,” Younus said in a video interview. “As players, we also had a few queries that will happen at the camp; though, this is my third camp here but still we didn’t know what to expect.” said Younis Khan.
“But from the day we came here on May 14, the way the team has progressed has been amazing,” he said. “The army has helped us a lot. We were thinking that we will be pushed a lot and we will have to put in a lot of hard work and that did eventually happen but the respect that we received from our trainers was amazing.”
“I am a big fan now of the army’s fitness camp. I wish that I had trained with the army and their trainers during my youth as I would have been in better shape now.”
“I am saying this from the bottom of my heart that we gained a lot from here. We will now try as best as possible that we don’t let down the Pakistan Army and their trainers. We will try our best to fulfill all the expectations of our fans as players and as a team.”
Pakistan’s newly appointed T20 captain Sarfraz Ahmed, said during an official PCB interview, admitted that the at the beginning of the camp it was tough but with passing time they have settled down rather nicely and are really enjoying the camp at the moment. He added that the credit goes to the Pakistan Cricket Board for coming up with such an initiative and also appreciated the work put in by the army trainers.
“The camp is amazing and we are enjoying it,” said Sarfraz. “When we came here, the first few days were quite tough but now day by day improvements are becoming visible and the boys are enjoying the camp now.”
“I think the credit goes to the PCB for organising this camp which provided the boys with an opportunity to improve their fitness,” said Sarfraz. “The army staff is doing an amazing job with us. They are working hard with us.”
“I hope that after this camp there will be a lot of improvement in the fitness standards of the players,” he said. “We are feeling better than before and I hope we can carry on with the routines that we learnt here which will help us in the future.”
