Pakistan origin British boxer Amir Khan on Monday said that he would love to advice the Pakistan cricket team on how to stay fit and be disciplined regarding food and diet. 
"Would love to help Pakistan cricket team with some advice on how to stay fit and strong. How to be disciplined on food, diet, and training. The team has talent but need to improve on Strength & conditioning and focus @TheRealPCB," Amir tweeted. 

On Sunday, the boxer also tweeted that he would take revenge of Pakistan's defeat in the cricket team as he will go on to defeat Indian Neeraj Goyat in their upcoming fight in Saudi Arabia. 
"Pakistan lost to India today #ICCWorldCup2019 come July 12th I will avenge the loss and knock out Neeraj Goyat on our upcoming fight in #SaudiArabia," he tweeted.
