Fitness test should be the first thing for Pakistani players: Former cricketer


There has been a stir in Pakistan after Pakistan’s defeat in the World Cup match against India. Meanwhile, former fast bowler Wasim Akram has also raised questions on the fitness of Pakistani players. He said, “Looking at the Pakistani players it seems that they are not completely fit.

Indian cricket team defeated Pakistan by 7 wickets in the World Cup 2023 match played in Ahmedabad. Batting first, Pakistan team was all out for 191 runs in 42.5 overs. In reply, India achieved the target by losing only 3 wickets in 30.3 overs. For India, Jasprit Bumrah took 2 wickets for 19 runs in 7 overs.

It is very important to undergo fitness test: Wasim Akram

A lot of questions are being raised about the Pakistan team and Wasim Akram believes that the Pakistani players are not even completely fit. He said during an interview with Sportskeeda:

I had already said that the Indian team had a 70-30 lead in this match, because their entire preparation was very good. On the other hand, if you look at Pakistan, three presidents have changed in three years, so how will the team remain stable. I also feel that there is some fitness problem in the Pakistan team. Fitness tests have now been discontinued. When Misbah-ul-Haq was the coach, he used to give fitness tests and then players would come and complain that Misbah was giving fitness tests. In such a sport, it is very important to get a fitness test done once a month. If you don’t do this, this is what will happen.
