‘He Is The Fittest Cricketer In The World’, BCCI’s Coach Draws Comparison Between Virat Kohli And Rohit Sharma

The strength and conditioning coach associated with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ankit Kaliyar recently mentioned that the fitness level of Team India captain Rohit Sharma is equivalent to that of Virat Kohli.

Kaliyar asserted that Rohit Sharma has a bulky appearance, but it does not mean he is not fit. He also said that the Indian captain successfully cleared all his Yo-Yo Tests.

While having a conversation with TOI, Kaliyar said, “Rohit Sharma is a fit player. He has good fitness. He looks a bit bulky but he always passes the Yo-Yo test. He is as fit as Virat Kohli. He looks like he is bulky but we have seen him on the field. His agility and mobility are amazing. He is among the fittest cricketers.”

Ankit Kaliyar also discussed how Shubman Gill has taken motivation from Virat Kohli regarding fitness.

He said, “Shubman (Gill) is very fit. Not just fit, he is a very skillful player. There is no doubt that Shubman is inspired by Virat Bhai. Be it batting, fitness, or skill, Shubman is following Virat bhai. I am sure Shubman will be doing well for the country in the coming years.”

Kaliyar also said that Virat Kohli is the fittest athlete in the world. He said, “Virat Kohli is the fittest player in the Indian team and the world. The reason behind that is that he’s following a strict schedule. Whether he’s playing or not, he follows or takes care of his nutrition, training, supplementation, and conditioning part really well. He is very religious about his regime and routine. He’s the fittest athlete in India and throughout the world.”
