Pace bowling requires a lot of mental discipline and seeing how fat mashrafi becomes everytime he is out due to injury tells me that the need for biriyani is a lot stronger than the need to be the best at the moment.
Exactly very very good point Jadukor. I doubt our guys work on their fitness outside tours, tournaments. Again a pace academy, or our high performance unit can help with this regard. Another Pakistani example (Not comeback, rather late introduction) is Aizaz Cheema who at the age of 33 can bowl over 140 comfortably.
