I have the luxury of hindsight but this seems to be extremely stupid on the part of coaching and fitness staff. we have an issue with the fitness of fast bowlers and we want them to play soccer as part of warm up!?! isnt there a less risky option?

The aussie guys used to play rugby as a warm up, so consider us lucky to only stick to football!
