Morne Morkel, fast bowler from South Africa, reveals that a lot of green smoothies have helped him improve his fitness.
Morkel is married to former Channel Nine presenter-turned-holistic health-and-wellness coach, Roz Kelly, and he has revealed that his better half urged him to opt for a more healthy diet.
Morkel has not gone completely vegetarian unlike Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle, who adopted a vegan lifestyle that includes eating up to 20 bananas a day, Sport24 reported.
The paceman claimed that he has cut out fizzy drinks, adding that he drinks water and mixes a lot of green smoothies.
Morkel said that the new diet has given him more energy, which enables him to bowl longer spells.
