Pakistan players to face fine for sleeping in dressing room: Report

Srinagar: As there is never a dull moment in Pakistan cricket, there is is a big update from out of field activuty, with reports claiming that players who sleep in dressing room can face huge fines.

Reports said that Director cum Coach Mohammad Hafeez has introduced new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) with a zero-tolerance policy on inactivity, including a $500 fine for players caught sleeping in the dressing room.

“Some players, who were not part of the playing XI, used to sleep in the dressing room when the previous management was in charge,” Geo News report quoting sources said.

However, the new team management has told the players to sleep when they are at the hotel rather than the stadium.

“While the new rules aim to promote professionalism and focus, some players reportedly expressed frustration, comparing the strictness to Under-16 team regulations. Sources claimed informal discussions among players revealed discontent with the perceived lack of trust and personal space,” report said.
