Pakistan's new Aussie trainer David Dwyer has brought in a fresh new perspective in the training regimen of the team.

Pakistan's new Aussie trainer David Dwyer has admitted that keeping Shoaib Akhtar fit is a pretty huge task, and its taken a lot of hard work to get the Rawalpindi express "fit as a fiddle".

Dwyer has brought in a fresh new perspective in the training regimen of the Pakistan team and is confident the results will show up soon.

The Pakistan cricket team trained at the Feroz Shah Kotla ahead of the Delhi Test match but there was nothing conventional about the session.

The batting and bowling was preceded by a game of rugby, supervised by new Aussie trainer Dawyer and the main aim is improve agility and fitness in the Pakistan side.

And the most intriguing element of Dwyer's regimen is the White Towel technique.

The Pakistan cricket team has for a while been a unit studded with individual brilliance. And while David's primary aim is to enhance their fitness, he's also trying to incorporate Rugby style team spirit.

Not one to get bogged down by the language barrier, Dwyer plans to tackle the Urdu speaking Pakistanis just the way he handled a rugby team in Japan.
