Coach Kabir Khan has confirmed Afghanistan's preparation for the 2015 World Cup will include a two-week training camp in Pakistan.

The camp is scheduled to start on 15 April in Karachi, with former Pakistan captains Aamir Sohail and Rashid Latif invited to mentor the visitors.

"We have a full year of events starting with the Asian Cricket Council Trophy next month and the excitement will reach the highest point with the World Cup, and we have planned a two-week camp in Karachi," Khan told <i>AFP</i>.

The Afghans have qualified for a maiden World Cup campaign after finishing second in the World Cricket League Championship. Earlier this year, they beat Bangladesh in the Asia Cup.

"We had a few good results in the Asia Cup where we beat the hosts Bangladesh. But our batsmen did not handle pressure well in the World Twenty20," added Khan.
