Misbah-ul-Haq bans biryani, sweet Dishes for Pakistan cricketers
Remember the video of a Pakistani fanatic who accused Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men of eating “pizza and burger” before the long-awaited World Cup clash against India that they lost by a significant margin at Old Trafford on June 16? It appears that the newly appointed head coach Misbah-ul-Haq has taken note of the deterioration of players’ fitness standards and therefore introduced a new directive diet plan in which he bans sweet dishes and spicy biryani that will help them to be more agile and adapt to the ground.
Misbah has reportedly called for a change in the diet for players at the national camp and the national tournament to instill a new fitness culture in the team. In his order, the 43-year-old, Misbah ul Haq bans sweet dishes and spicy biryani or red meat meals rich in oil.
“According to reports, Misbah-ul-Haq has changed diet and nutrition plans for players in national tournaments and on the national field, no longer biryani or meals rich in red meat or sweet plates for the players,” Pakistan journalist Saj Sadiq.
Misbah recently received the dual role of the head coach and head of selection by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Waqar Younis has named the team’s bowling coach for the next three years.
The first assignment of the Misbah-Waqar combination will be the next three local ODI series and three T20Is against Sri Lanka, to play from September 27 to October 9.
