WATCH: Pakistan players perform fielding drills using old mattresses

Pakistan cricketers turned to an innovative training method as they were spotted incorporating old mattresses into their fielding drills during their pre-season fitness camp in Karachi.

Test cricketers Imam-ul-Haq and Umar Amin were catching drills on mattresses under the guidance of fielding specialist Masroor. The players attempted dives to take difficult catches with the mattress ensuring their safe landing.


It is pertinent to mention that the Pakistan team is in hot water following their dismal run in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan had a disastrous start to their campaign as they endured a shock loss against the USA in the Super Over as they failed to chase down the 19-run target.

Following the defeat against the USA, Pakistan succumbed to a frustrating six-run defeat against arch-rivals India.

The back-to-back defeats put Pakistan on the verge of an early exit from the tournament. The former champions got on the winning track when they registered a hard-fought seven-wicket victory over Canada to keep Super Eights hopes alive.

However, the USA’s match against Ireland was abandoned without a ball bowled due to persistent rain in Florida, resulting in Pakistan getting knocked out of the tournament as the USA progressed from Group A along with India.

Pakistan then edged past Ireland in another stiff challenge to bow out of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a win.

Currently, the Green Shirts are preparing for the upcoming home Test series against Bangladesh. The two-match Test series is scheduled to be played in August.
