While speaking to the media on the sideline of the specialised camp at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), Grant Bradburn revealed what he wants to achieve as the head coach of the Pakistan team.
“We want to become the No.1 side in all formats, we want to win World Cup this year and to play the next World Test Championship Final is our target,” said Bradburn.

“It is a great opportunity for us to prepare. The players can further improve their skills in this camp,” stated Bradburn.

“We are going to make many experiences in this camp,” Bradburn added.
