Afridi, Hafeez escape fitness camp due to injury

LAHORE: Injuries prevail as former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Hafeez pull out from fitness camp set to be held in the NCA Lahore from Sunday to Thursday.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) arranged this camp to test fitness level of central-contracted players ahead of boot camp at the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) in Kakul which starts May 14.

Meanwhile, PCB Chief Shaharyar Khan said the decision of awarding central contact to Shahid Afridi will be made after observing his performance, Dawn News reported.

He said despite the fact that Afridi didn’t take part in the fitness test arranged by PCB due to some injury, “our main focus will be on his performance”.

The current central contract awarded to players will end on June 30, 2016. Afridi is currently in the A category of players.
