Afghanistan to train in Pakistan

Cricinfo, Karachi

Afghanistan will prepare for the 2015 World Cup with a two-week camp in Pakistan, coach Kabir Khan has said. The camp is scheduled to begin on April 15 in Karachi and former captains Aamir Sohail and Rashid Latif will also be working with the side's batsmen and wicketkeepers.
"We have a full year of events starting with the Asian Cricket Council Trophy next month and the excitement will reach the highest point with the World Cup, and we have planned a two-week camp in Karachi from April 15," Khan told AFP.
Afghanistan secured their maiden World Cup qualification in October last year, after finishing second in the World Cricket League Championship with a victory over Kenya. The win capped off a remarkable run for Afghanistan five years after they began their cricketing journey by winning Division Five of the World Cricket League.
Earlier in March, Afghanistan participated in their first Asia Cup and beat hosts Bangladesh.
