Meanwhile, “PAF are a strong side. It was a close game today and we were unlucky to lose it after a good fight. The teams not having a ground always face issues before going into such events.
We held a camp before Eid for 20 to 22 days and players caught some rhythm but after Eid we could not continue that camp due to Covid restrictions and we came here straightaway for the league. —APP
