Lahore—Pakistan hockey team’s coach Khawaja Mohammad Junaid says the ongoing national probables’ camp will help the players overcome their individual weaknesses through a detailed analysis of their game in crucial match situations.
“It is like studying hockey by judging the players’ past and present performance through comprehensive analyses with the help of audio-video methods and special lectures to them,” Junaid told APP after a training session on the third day of the week-long camp at the National Hockey Stadium here on Thursday.
