Pakistan cricket team coach Mohsin Khan has advised players not to focus on the ongoing match fixing trial in London and to focus on the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.

Mohsin was quoted in The Express Tribune as saying,” I’ve told them clearly to not discuss the issue. I’m pleased that the players are focused.

The interim coach said that the series against Sri Lanka was a crucial one, but added that the players were motivated enough.

“The body language of all the players is positive and they are showing good energy in the training drills,” he said.

Pakistan is slated to face Sri Lanka in a Test series, starting October 18. The two teams will play three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and a one-off Twenty20.
