Fitness issues of Pakistani cricketers have become a major issue in 2022 Asia Cup


For the supervision of the squad during the Asia Cup 2022, fitness issues of Pakistani cricketers have grown to be a significant problem. 

Many of the national cricket team’s players have fitness problems, which could hinder their performance in the Asia Cup 2022.  

Mohammad Wasim and wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan both had back problems during the ongoing regional cricket competition, and bowlers Naseem Shah and Harif Rauf were spotted struggling with their fitness during Sunday’s Pakistan vs. India match. 

In Dubai, the injured Pakistani cricketers are receiving therapy. 

Following his return from Australia, Dr. Najeeb Soomro was chosen to serve as the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chief medical officer. Meanwhile, the team’s physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon and fitness trainer belong to South Africa. 

Despite having a skilled medical staff on hand, the administration of the team is drawing criticism for the number of players that have fitness issues.

In the high-stakes game against India on Sunday in the Asia Cup 2022 cricket tournament in Dubai, Pakistan was defeated.
