Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq bans biryani, sweets for Pakistan cricketers

The coach-cum-selector has issued orders that only barbecue items and pasta with lots of fruits should be on the menu for all teams in the domestic season

-

Pakistan’s new head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq has changed the diet and nutrition plans for players in the domestic tournaments and in the national camp.

Misbah has issued standing orders that no heavy diet would be available to the players during the domestic season and in the national camp as players have to attain peak fitness to make the national squad.

The Pakistan team had come in for severe criticism after their loss to India in the World Cup and a video of a Pakistani fan accusing captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s men of eating “pizza and burger” ahead of the much-anticipated clash against India which they lost by a huge margin at the Old Trafford on June 16.

“According to reports Misbah-ul-Haq has changed the diet and nutrition plans for players in the domestic tournaments and in the national camp – no more biryani or oil-rich red meat meals or sweet dishes for the players now,” tweeted Pakistan journalist Saj Sadiq.

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.
