Ex- Pakistan pacer Mohammad Akram has disclosed that players’ central contracts and match charges would be affected if they aren’t ‘fit’ enough, as he wrapped up a month-long training with the team. Mohammad Akram, who took charge of a training camp last week, said that Pakistan was wanting to resolve its fitness scenario in time for next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
As per The Dawn, Mohammad Akram said that they don’t have a fitness culture in Pakistan and they have no cricket schools like in England, Australia and South Africa, so it was in his mind, even in his playing days, that kind of camps is always useful. Mohammad Akram said that Pakistan ad been studying the 17 parts of fitness training used by other global sides, adding that fitness tests would be held every 4 months which would affect the players’ central contracts and match charges if they aren’t reaching their objectives.
Mohammad Akram said that they’re giving the players diet plans because they’ve reverted to unhealthy diet programs after this kind of camps that have been organised earlier in the country.
