He thanked to PTF President Kalim Imam, PLTA President Rao Iftikhar for providing all the possible and the best facilities for the officials and players during the camp. Coach Rashid added: "As the team is participating in an international tournament after a gap of 10 years, so it will be difficult for them to clinch any title, but the girls will try their best to give their best output. The girls, after a two-week training in the camp, are able now to handle the pressure and they are motivated and devoted to perform their best." "In my opinion, this sort of camps should be held for at least four weeks, so that maximum training can be provided to them and they can practice a lot with more trial matches," Rashid Malik concluded.
