    Reporting Live from Abbottabad Training Camp

    As always, PakPassion's own BeingFaridKhan has made his way to Abbotabad on our behalf and is reporting live from the facility.

    As it happens:

    The players have finished off a game of volleyball which ended with a 3-3 score., then followed it up with a frisbee session. We had Wahab Riaz bat against Junaid Khan in the nets.

    Also seen are Mohammad Irfan and Ehsan Adil having a separate batting sessions.

    The rest of the squad with Misbah, Hafeez, Kamran, Malik, Nasir, Umar and Asad etc. are have a fielding session with Julien Fountain.

    The five bowlers, who were recommended by Wasim Akram are also having a fielding session.

    The security here is extremely tight. No public is allowed here.

    More to be added later...
