Nowadays so many cricket fans are using to say we have to see Indian cricket before dhoni and after dhoni. And some use to say team india is different at before kohli and after kohli. So dhoni has brought some key changes in team india and brought success to Indian cricket. Likewise kohli too brought some drastic changes in team india. Among those changes on change is fitness.
Yes kohli is the brand ambassador for the fitness in team India. He use to do regular exercise to keep himself fit. So because of that he is being so much energetic in the field. The same thing said by veteran team india cricketer suresh raina. While taking about the importance of player’s fitness he recalled the changes that were happened during last decade.
The awareness of players regarding fitness is because of kohli. Raina has given credit to kohli for fitness chanting in team India. “It (fitness) is very important these days. I remember, long time back, around 10-12 years ago, I underwent a knee operation. There weren’t too many facilities back then and it took me 8-9 months to regroup. However, there is a great setup in place. All thanks to Virat,” Suresh Raina quoted.
“He (Kohli) has made a system wherein a player has to field well apart from his primary task of batting or bowling. This duty was earlier performed by Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif bhai and me. But now all the 11 players have to be on their toes because the level of the game has increase and you have to make a difference, always. So, that’s how it has become a system,” he added further.
