Misbah Ends Biryani Culture for Better Fitness Standards in Domestic Cricket

The newly appointed head coach of Pakistan cricket team, Misbah-ul-Haq, has made his intentions clear when it comes to the fitness standards, not just for the national cricketers, but for players in the domestic circuit as well.

The former captain has advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take good care of domestic cricketers. The strict instructions from Misbah has helped bring changed as more fruits and less oily foods are being served to the cricketers at their hotels and during the matches.

According to a sports journalist, pasta, boiled rice, beans, barbecue roast and lots of fruits are now served instead of the unhealthy food in a bid to improve fitness standards of the cricketers.

Earlier, former captain, Wasim Akram took a dig at the PCB before the World Cup for feeding national cricketers biryani, adding that “you cannot compete against champions by feeding them biryani”.

It remains to be seen how long the PCB can restrict players from eating their favorite foods, however, it is a step in the right direction.

  • Shows you how talented Pakistani cricketers are. Even without having the right nutrition they are elite players. Had they worked on fitness and nutriton intake then these players would be unstoppable.

    You are what you eat. Your output depends on what you consume.

    You don’t put cooking oil in your car. You put premium unleaded fuel.

    Nutrition is just as important as training. Hope Pakistanis will learn.
