@Akib: physique != fitness. I agree our players tend not to be buff, musclebound figures but Riyadh, Mushi, Junaid are actually quite chiseled. Part is our genes and part is our protein-light diets heavy on carbs. However that is NOT connected to being out of breath after 30 min at the crease. Do you know the Aussies practice in 3 layers of clothing in the Northern Territories (warmest, most humid part) so that they are acclimatised for the weather? How do our players "bleep" ratings compare with theirs? With a younger and lighter weight squad we should be running circles around their fitness - not the other way round! They have Hussey and we have Fatty McFatty. 'Nuff 'sed.
