LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistan’s highest runs scorer in Test cricket Younis Khan said on Monday that the Pakistan team, which is currently being trained at the Army School of Physical Training in Kakul, would not let down the army during the forth coming series with England and in future games.

The veteran cricketer said, “this is my third camp here but still we didn’t know what to expect”, ” he elaborated in a video interview.

The 38-year-old explained, however, that the team had progressed well under army supervision. “The army has helped us a lot. We were thinking that we will be pushed a lot and we will have to put in a lot of hard work and that did eventually happen but the respect that we received from our trainers was amazing.”

Younis also couldn’t hide his love for the army’s training regime. “I am a big fan now of the army’s fitness camp. I wish that I had trained with the army and their trainers during my youth as I would have been in better shape now.”

The right-hand batsman also vowed to deliver results. “I am saying this from the bottom of my heart that we gained a lot from here. We will now try as best as possible that we don’t let down the Pakistan Army and their trainers. We will try our best to fulfil all the expectations of our fans as players and as a team.”

Earlier, test captain Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan were declared the fittest teams players after topping the fitness conducted earlier at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.
