Appreciating of England’s magnificent Test results in home conditions, Pakistan’s new chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has told the PCB’s chief curator that players who attend the camp on May 29 in Lahore should be given fresh seaming pitches, similar to what they will encounter in England, for practice.

Inzamam has also convinced the PCB to send the team two weeks earlier to England to set up an acclimatization camp in Hampshire County. “Inzi has gone through the records of the England team in Tests particularly in English conditions and is aware they thrashed India 3-1 in the summer of 2014 despite India boosting of a world class batting line-up,” a PCB source told.

Inzamam is keeping his fingers crossed that left arm pacer, Mohammad Amir gets a visa to travel with the Pakistan team to England in June. “The feeling is that while Pakistan’s batting will be really tested out in English conditions the bowling has enough depth to cause problems for the English batsmen, something that other teams which have played against England have lacked notably when India lost in 2014,” the source said.

Around 31 probables are currently attending a boot camp at the military academy in Kakul to raise fitness levels. From May 29 the action will shift to Lahore where the players will be joined by their new head coach, Mickey Arthur and they will have a week-long camp, focussing on cricket skills for the England tour.
