The task-master attitude of the 29-year-old Australian(McInnes) has impressed his charges although it means adapting to a new way of daily conduct including changing traditional food habits.

"The coach has discouraged us to eat rice although we do get a small amount during dinner. We are mostly eating non-spicy food and drinking a lot of milk," said one under-19 player yesterday.


The young cricketers feel that the food habit is helping them make optimum use of their physical abilities.


McInnes, who took over the under-19s this month, has also made it mandatory for his boys to carry notebooks to the warm-up games against England for writing down their personal observations.

Slave master, thuri, Task master will show the way.

No man, I've seen that if you consume rice and don't get proper physic stretching, then you just want to sleep. Yawn!:)

What, another follower of the Atkins diet? Well in sports it probably makes sense.
I always suspected it, rice for dinner is the ultimate fattening catalyst.
BD cricket is getting scientific, not bad.

Many good sporting nations eat rice as staple. I don't think it's the rice that is the problem; As Nasif has pointed out, it is the quantity and combination; also the way we cook rice leaving out the vitamins. Little rice and lots of protein-vitamin-green vegies and milk for minerals....should just be fine
