- Haris Rauf, net bowler for India in 2018-19.
- Emerging T20I star with 72 wickets in 57 matches.
- Reveals secret: 24 eggs daily for optimal weight.
Haris Rauf, the rising star in international cricket, reminisced about his early days as a net bowler for India during their 2018-19 tour of Australia. This experience preceded his international debut and included an intriguing encounter with Indian captain Virat Kohli during net practice.
In a remarkable journey, Rauf has swiftly ascended the ranks to become one of the world’s premier T20I bowlers. With 72 wickets in just 57 T20Is and an economy rate of 8, his contributions played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s journey to the final of the 2022 T20 World Cup.
So, what’s the secret behind his meteoric success? According to Rauf himself, one of his key strategies revolves around a unique dietary habit – eggs. In a recent appearance on the show he unveiled that he consumes a staggering 24 eggs daily to maintain his optimal weight.
Rauf humorously described his egg-heavy routine, attributing it to the diet plan provided by Aquib Javed, the former Pakistan bowler turned coach. The plan prescribes the consumption of 8 eggs for breakfast, another 8 for lunch, and the final 8 for dinner. Rauf’s initial encounter with this regimen left him feeling like he had entered a poultry farm when he first visited the cricket academy.
