Reportedly, Misbah 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. In his order, the 43-year-old has said that players will not be having biryani or oil-rich red meat meals or sweet dishes.
"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.
