The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the inclusion of pace bowler Mohammad Amir and all-rounder Imad Wasim among the 29 players selected for the upcoming fitness camp in Kakul, Abbottabad.

Having recently withdrawn their retirements, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir rejoined the squad, marking their return to the national setup ahead of the upcoming T20I series against New Zealand.

Additionally, Usman Khan, a standout performer in PSL 9, has also earned a spot in the camp. However, his selection for the series is subjective to his willingness to represent Pakistan, for which he needs to give up his eligibility for the UAE national team.

Scheduled to run from March 26 to April 8, the camp, conducted in collaboration with the Pakistan Army, aims to prepare players for upcoming series and tournaments.

Pakistan is scheduled to play the home T20I series against New Zealand, followed by away fixtures against Ireland and England. The European tour will be concluded shortly before the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies.

According to a PCB press release, the camp will focus on team building and enhancing players’ physical and mental strength to tackle future challenges effectively.
