20-20 World Cup: Shoaib Malik shed light on secrets to his fitness
Veteran Pakistan batter Shoaib Malik has revealed the reason behind his fitness. Malik, 39, is still one of the most agile cricketers in the Pakistan team. The right-hander was at his brutal best in Pakistan’s final league game against Scotland and scored 54 off 18 balls to help Pakistan post 189-4 in 20 overs. Malik said that he is obsessed with training which helps him maintain the energy levels.

“Well, to be honest, I would say I have self-obsession of seeing myself fit when I look at it in the mirror, and most importantly I’m still enjoying playing cricket, and it’s helping, as well, end of the day towards the team,” Malik said at the post-match press conference.
“I guess if you want to stay fit, then you’ve got to train every day, and that’s what I have been doing. “I’m not sure about playing a year more or two more years. Right now I’m in middle of a very important thing and not thinking about all that.”
Meanwhile, Pakistan has been in tremendous form in the 20-20 World Cup. The team topped Group B and will take on Australia in the semi final on November 11. Malik said Australia is a tough team to beat but Pakistan will be up for the challenge.
“Of course we have seen Australia, the way they have been playing. They have been playing really good cricket. So are we. But of course it’s going to be a tough challenge for both the teams,” said Malik
“It’s another game, then I guess the other batters have made plans, execute and just take it as another game. “…we have a few days in between before the semis, so I’m sure management will sit, our team is going to sit and they’ll definitely talk about and they’ll make plans, as well, for the semis,” he said.
