In a bid to bind the team together and keep the players away from media glare, newly-appointed Pakistan captain Younis Khan has requested the cricket board to hold the three-day conditioning camp ahead of two-Test series against Sri Lanka at a remote industrial town in outskirts of the city.
"I just want the players to spend quality time together. I want them to remain away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It would be a good opportunity for us to gel together and prepare ourselves mentally for the coming Test series against Sri Lanka," Younis said.
Younis, who replaced Shoaib Malik as skipper, has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board and selectors to hold the camp at Steel town which has first class cricket ground named Quaid-e-Azam park.
"The players need to concentrate and focus totally on cricket in the short time before the first Test begins on February 21," he said.
