The new Pakistan men’s cricket team Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq has tightened food habits of the Pakistani side. Haq ordered a new diet plan which cuts out oily food and sweets for the team.
It seems as though Haq has taken a note of the deteriorating fitness standards of the players and thus has come out with a new directive which will help them become more agile and fit on the ground.
The 43-year-old has asked for a change in diet for the players in the national camp and the domestic tournament to instill a new fitness culture in the team. Which means players will not be having biryani or oil-rich red meat meals or sweet dishes.
The Pakistan cricket team faced severe backlash at home after their loss to India in the World Cup. Fans accused captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s men of eating “pizza and burger” a night before their match at the Old Trafford on June 16.
Misbah was recently handed the dual role of the head coach and chief selector by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Waqar Younis has been appointed as the bowling coach of the team for the next three years.
The first assignment of Misbah-Waqar combination will be the upcoming three ODI and three T20I home series against Sri Lanka, which will be played from September 27 to October 9.
