Outrage Erupts as Video Shows Pakistan Cricketers Training on Old Mattresses

Pakistan’s disastrous ICC T20 World Cup 2024 campaign continues to spark outrage, with fans now targeting the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for their training methods.

A now-viral video has surfaced online, showing Pakistan players practicing catching drills by diving onto – wait for it – an old mattress. This revelation has ignited a firestorm of criticism towards the PCB, with fans accusing them of resorting to outdated and frankly, embarrassing training techniques.

Pakistan’s fielding throughout the tournament was a major cause for concern. The team’s struggles were evident in their group stage exit, with high-profile dropped catches and misfields contributing to defeats against both India and, shockingly, the United States.

Social media has been flooded with comments slamming the PCB. “Is this the best we can offer our national team?” questioned one user. Others pointed out that dropped catches cost Pakistan dearly in crucial matches, particularly against India where they failed to chase a modest target of 120 runs.

The mattress fiasco comes on the heels of earlier criticism directed at the PCB’s decision to send the team to a military camp ahead of the World Cup. Images circulated online showed players trekking through hills carrying heavy stones, leading fans to question the relevance of such exercises to improving T20 skills.

With these revelations, the spotlight is now firmly on the PCB. Fans are demanding answers and a complete overhaul of the training regime for the national team. The pressure is on for the board to ensure Pakistan’s cricketers are equipped with the modern training methods and facilities needed to compete on the world stage.
