    Correct. In fact, no schedule has yet been announced for the domestic season or even the next Pakistan series.

    The pictures are haphazard and seem to be completely random. Many more players at the camp than the ones in the pictures.

    True, but as I mentioned in one of my other posts the "C" and "D" central contracts includes most of the players who are currently taking part in the NCA Camp- such as Imam Ul Haq, Aamer Yamin, Usman Shinwari, Muhammad Rizwan, Muhammad Hassan etc. Hopefully this doesn't mean the others who have not been awarded contracts will be completely ignored, such as Sahibzada Farhan, Usama Mir, Ammad Butt, Hussain Tallat, Agha Salman.

    I have heard Salman Butt is indeed at the camp too.

    The only list I have is in the first post of this thread. Which doesn't appear to be a complete one... perhaps it's a free for all!

    Why on earth was he invited to take part? I advise all the youngsters to stay well clear of him.

    Salman Butt requested for his inclusion in the ongoing training in NCA and he was allowed by the authorities.
    Lahore Qalandars off-season training is also going on these days under the supervision of Aqib Javed so you would also see most of the LQ players in NCA these days.
    Moreover, it's NCA and any player can take part in training there.

    Yes I have been following LQ's off season training- Saif Badar in particular.

    I am aware it is the NCA, and Butt is welcome to do his own training but he should not have been included in the PCB Camp.

    Running up and down a stadium's stand is an appalling training exercise.
    What about basketball and plenty of other sports which are played on the pavement or hard ground? Are these guys all damaging their legs?

    Hassan Khan and Shadab Khan are the two best fielders in Pakistan, can't expect that level of effort from all our upcoming youngsters.

    High performance camp to produce cricketers: Mudassar

    LAHORE, July 20 (APP): Director National Cricket Academy Mudassar Nazar said on Thursday that the ongoing high performance cricket camp will help in identifying new talented players to fill the void in the national team after the retirement of former Pakistan captains, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan.

    “Whenever such an activity (camp) has been organised it served the Pakistan cricket in a big way as few talented players were discovered to serve the national team,” he told the media here.

    Musaddar recalled that in 2003 and 2009 long duration high performance camps were organised and on both occasions it helped in getting quality cricketers to be a part of the national team.

    “It is not easy to find the replacements of Misbah and Younis as they served the game with pride creating records for the homeland,” he said adding.”

    To a question, he said sometimes it is easy to get the replacements of iconic cricketers and sometimes it takes years to find the player of their class. “It is my personal experience based on my involvement in the previous camps (2003 and 2009) that we have been able to find very good players who served the national cricket for quite a period,” he said.

    He said it is not fair thought to conclude that after success in the Champions trophy the team is fully balanced in all aspects. “Based on one title win in a major tournament we can not sit back and relax ,still there is a lot of work to be done on the national side with passage of time and its participation in future events, team building is continuous process and so is the replacement of players in case of their failure,” said the NCA director.

    Mudassar said the high performance will also help in improving the standards of the domestic cricket as when the participants of the camp will feature in the national tournaments they will be far ahead in all physical fitness and technique and the other players will be learning from them to improve the level of their game and fitness.

    To a question he said efforts are being made to strengthen the pace battery of the national team by giving special attention to the pace bowlers. “We have few youngsters in our national junior squads (U16 and U17) who are really quick but we have to wait for while to see them at their peak,” he added. “During the tour of our A team we discover one or two high quality cricketers and that is success of that team,” he said adding “There is dire need to pay attention on our junior teams to groom the talent as it takes a lot of time and effort to find such cricketers who can serve the game for quite a long time.”

    Work underway to enhance players fitness, mental toughness: NCA head coach

    LAHORE, July 20 (APP): Head coach of the National Cricket Academy, former test cricketer Mushtaq Ahmad said on Thursday that greater emphasis is being laid to enhance players fitness and mental toughness in the high performance camp here at the NCA.

    “It is a very important venture (camp) as the coaches are working on different aspects of the game even basics of the game which will never change besides focusing on improving players fitness and mental toughness which help them in becoming great cricketers at international level,” he told the media here while giving his input on the first two-week training of the ten week-long camp.

    Mustaq said the prime objective is to increase the effort level of the players so that they should perform in pressure situations at international level while pushing themselves for achieving set targets.

    “If a player has the capacity to run for five kilometers, we are motivating him through various physical drills to take his effort level to seven kilometers and definitely this capacity building will be an added advantage for him in his international cricket career,” said the former test spinner.

    “Players are working in the gym as well as they are running on road and in the Punjab stadium to get the experience of running at different fields, both soft and solid,” he said adding “By that way they will be adjusting themselves at different natures of the grounds while playing cricket as Australian, England and other cricket playing countries grounds which are quite different in comparison with each other being soft or solid.”

    NCA head coach termed the long duration camp a modern cricket design to sharpen in the skills and bettering techniques of the players to a required level of the competitive cricket. “We want to remove the inner fear factor of the players while they play cricket to showcase their talent to the maximum level, getting rid of the feelings that are not capable of achieving set targets,” he asserted.

    Mushtaq praised the interest and keenness of the camp trainees and said they (players) themselves are of the view that after initial training there is visible improvement in their physical fitness and mental toughness.

    “Modern-day cricket requires a lot from a players, the best of his abilities, his top fitness and they are the components which will lead them to excellence in their cricket careers,” he said adding “NCA is up to this task to encourage the players to learn basic and finer points of the game to serve the game in a better way and to become useful part of the national squads in due course of time.”

    This is good to hear- it suggests the likes of Malik and Hafeez are not guaranteed selections, and will actually need to earn their place in the team. Let's hope the management backs its words up with action.

    Impressive fielding, wish other players would take fielding as serious as him and Shadab. Fielding is actually fun, great fielding also lifts the moral of the side.

    I would go as far as saying, brilliant fielding moments through the games were vital in Pakistan winning the Champions Trophy.

    He has put on some muscle not just from few months but from a year or two.I heard in a show some time back that he is a guy who has put on some muscles in a proper manner and one of the few guys in domestics who know how to take care of themselves.

    May be the gap from desired level is too big, hence coaches are putting extra efforts on fitness; but from pictures, I feel it's too much emphasis on fitness drills rather than the game skills. Fitness is indeed important, but where is net session - batting, bowling & keeping? Hope it doesn't end in a commando training.

    It seems that they are having blocks of training. In the quotes I've added in other threads from Usman Salahuddin, etc., they mentioned that first two weeks were for fitness exclusively. I assume that after that, there will be more focus on net sessions.

    They can't do just fitness for 10 weeks, after all.

    May be, because players were way behind the expected level, therefore first they are trying to take them at least to a minimum standard. Only issue can be that, after excessive work out in such summer, players don't get too drained by the time skills training starts.

    Still great initiative - those who are interested, should know where their fitness level is expected to remain, so that next time they can get into nets straightway from Day 1.

    It's always a joy to see Mudassar Nazar.

    One of those men - and Mushtaq Ahmed is another - whom we English don't just like, we love.

    By the way, in the first of the new pictures, was that early nineties breakthrough junior Zahid Fazal in the photo? He was a great loss - should have had a top career.

    Fitness is always a part of such camps, irrespective of fitness levels. Maintaining and improving fitness requires regular work.

    I wonder how Pakistans young cricketers react to those so-called anti-corruption lectures when convicted cheats are wandering around with full use of PCB facilities. It seems that pakistan needs another major scandal to come to its senses. And I won't be surprised if in ensnares some of the beloved hardworking new generation of cricketers.
    In fact I wish it.

    This post is a recurring post regarding the program schedule for 10 weeks. Since start, I have seen pictures only for fitness trainings, not for the gore skills at nets.

    See posts 219 and 234- nets photos. As Abdullah bhai said, they have split the 10 weeks between fitness, fielding, skills development, individual coaching etc. Plus the last two weeks of the camp will be practice matches.

    T20 isn't the best place to judge players. I think, his height & high arm action is impressive, but need to improve new ball skills. For his height & action, I don't think he'll reach 150KM sort of pace, therefore it has to be ball skill & accuracy. Might struggle to make PAK team, because there are younger bowlers with better ceiling.

    No one has a higher ceiling than Irfan except from maybe his partner Ehtisham.

    May be, but I didn't find much exciting, apart from height. Also, action looks clumsy for longer format. Ehtesham looks good indeed.

    Yes, I don't blame the people who watched him only in the PSL. If I was them, I'd probably have said the same. Irfan wasn't bowling with full confidence and Baz was impatient with him.

    I really hope that Mickey Arthur and Steve Rixon identify the raw materials in Ehsan Adil and work out how to get him to realise his potential.

    Five years ago in the Under-19 series in South Africa, he and Quinton De Kock were the two star players. Adil as much for his batting as his bowling.

    Pakistan has a full Test tour of South Africa in 15 months' time. They need a very tall right-arm quick bowler who can bat.

    I know that Ehsan Adil only bowls in the mid-130's.

    I know that he collapses in his bowling action.

    I know that his stamina isn't good enough.

    I know that his batting has gone backwards.

    But Pakistan cannot win in South Africa without playing 4 fast bowlers, of whom two must be passable batsmen.

    I'd be happy with:

    6. Sarfraz Ahmed
    7. Shadab Khan (because the spinner will hardly bowl, and needs to be a good batsman)
    8. Mohammad Amir
    9. Hasan Ali
    10. Ehsan Adil
    11. Mohammad Abbas

    Good to see that most of the boys are back and practicing although not so sure the weather is good enough for rigorous training outdoors.

    It was just a practice match, so chances of a proper scorecard are quite low.

    One quality which Sami has and many Pak batsmen dont have is once set this guy Sami can score big and this can be attested by his scores since u-19.
