Unconventional Training: Pakistani Cricket Team's Military-Style Drills

Islamabad: Pakistan's cricket team is in the spotlight once again, but this time for their unconventional training methods that have raised eyebrows. A viral video shows the team undergoing rigorous military-style training, sparking humor and criticism from social media users.


In the video, players like Naseem Shah, Mohammad Rizwan, and Iftikar Ahmed are seen participating in drills alongside army personnel. Activities include sniper shooting, lifting heavy stones, and intense physical exercises. Many are concerned that such training poses a risk of injury to the players, potentially jeopardizing their cricket careers.

Umpire Richard Kettleborough expressed skepticism, questioning the purpose of the team's military-style preparation and emphasizing the potential for player injuries. The unusual training regimen has left many puzzled, with some questioning whether the team is preparing for cricket or warfare.

Reportedly, the Pakistani cricket team is training at the Army School of Abbottabad, allegedly in preparation for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Pakistan Cricket Board's new chairman, Mohsin Naqvi, has emphasized the need for players to improve their power-hitting abilities, hence the unconventional training supervised by the military.

Before the T20 World Cup 2024, Pakistan is scheduled to play T20 series against New Zealand and England, further intensifying their preparation efforts. However, the controversial training methods have sparked debate and concern among cricket enthusiasts and observers alike.
