There is no denying the fact that Virat Kohli and Co. stresses very hard on the fitness part of the game. Kohli, in particular, wants everybody in the team to be more than a hundred percent fit, so that they can be agile and athletic on the field. However, it is not just Kohli who puts emphasis on fitness, but other Indian cricketers too focus on this regime. Recently, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan uploaded a video of the Indian team’s training session on his Instagram account and captioned it – “Off day or not, training is always on with fun!!” ALSO READ – Sakshi Dhoni and her “two boys”
In the background, one can see other players such as Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya and the captain himself working out in the gym. This shows how much importance the Indian team members give to fitness. Staying fit has certainly helped them to raise the fielding standards in the last few years.
Currently, Team India is playing a 5-match One-Day International (ODI) series against West Indies in the Caribbean islands. After the first ODI got washed out due to rain, India won the second ODI by 105 runs to lead the series 1-0. Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli and Kuldeep Yadav were the star performers in that match. The third ODI will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua where India will look to gain an unassailable lead in the series.
