After a weekend of training at Kuortane Olympic Training Center , a new-look Finnish National Team has been unveiled. Wicketkeeper-cum-captain Jonathan Scamans resigned the captaincy due to personal reasons in February and Zahidullah 'Nicky' Kamal has now been appointed captain in his stead.
'It's a great pleasure and an honour to represent my country not just as a cricket player but as the team captain. I hope I can lead the team with honour and set an example for my teammates,' Nicky Kamal said after he was appointed.
'Being able to train at Kuortane is great. Not only are the facilities excellent for improving our skills, but spending time together also allows us to bond as individuals and as a team. The programme during the training camp last weekend was action-packed but very rewarding.'
Nicky says he enjoyed the training: 'It has given me a chance to try my wings as team leader. One thing I've worked on is giving and getting feedback and trying to be constructive.'
