Pakistan training camp for UAE-bound Usman Khan and returnees

Pakistan training camp

In preparations for the upcoming T20 series against New Zealand, Pakistan has initiated a training camp at Kakul, and among the 28 players selected, UAE-based top-order batsman Usman Khan has been included. This move hints at Pakistan’s keen interest in recruiting him to their international squad. Despite Usman’s recent success in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) where he showcased his batting prowess as an overseas player, his official status with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) remains unchanged.

While Usman had previously expressed his intention to complete the residency period required to represent the UAE internationally, recent developments suggest a potential shift back to Pakistan’s side, especially with the looming T20 World Cup. Notably, the training camp also sees the return of Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir, who have rescinded their retirements, expressing their eagerness to don the Pakistan jersey once again. Additionally, Haris Rauf, recuperating from a shoulder injury, has been reinstated into the camp following the renewal of his central contract with the PCB.
