After Pakistan's 89-run loss to India, questions were raised over the fitness of players by many former cricketers and supporters. One of the fans even claimed that Pakistani players were eating pizza and burgers before the much-anticipated clash against India and their fitness levels are so poor that they should give up cricket and wrestle.
Former Pakistan pacer Waqar Younis also said that if the 1992 champions need to compete against India, they need to work on their fitness. "Culture needs to change first and then the fitness level needs to match the Indian players," Younis wrote in a column for the International Cricket Council.

Khan, a two-time World Champion and Olympic silver medallist will take on the Indian pro at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah -- nicknamed the "The Shining Jewel" in a fight for the WBC Pearl World Championship.
