Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been in sensational form, both as player and captain, as he continues to perform and lead the Indian side to consecutive series wins. Following the recent T20I series win over visitors New Zealand, Kohli is yet to take a break as he has kept himself busy with some promotional activities in his home town of New Delhi. During the event, Kohli decided to speak on the amount of outdoor sport one needs to play to keep the body fit and healthy. Kohli has maintained his fitness to a good level which makes him a consistent member in the Indian side, with hardly any injuries. He has urged the youth to play more outdoor games rather than wasting time by playing useless video games. Virat Kohli consolidates top spot in ICC T20I Rankings

On playing outdoor games

“There is so much of technology that children nowadays don’t go out and play..they are more interested in video games and indoor stuff, which wasn’t the case during our times. I want to encourage kids to come out and play sports. When I was growing up there were no such facilities but we created our own badminton courts out of a small area. That’s how you develop, it’s not about going to stadiums to play, you can create your own space and play,” said Kohli, as reported by IANS.

“We reach a stage where there is an urgent need of going out for walking or jogging, and only then we sort of do it because it is a crisis situation. Don’t wait for the last minute and take time out for fitness daily, which in turn will influence people around you in the right way. It’s not only about body building or having those big muscular look but its about keeping oneself fit by playing more and more outdoor games.”
