The strength and conditioning coach of Team India, Ankit Kaliyar, said that Rohit Sharma is as fit as Virat Kohli, even though he looks a little bulky.
Fitness wasn’t always a selection criteria for the Indian cricket team, but with the evolution of cricket, a lot of things have changed. With Virat Kohli arguably being the finest example, Indian players have worked hard towards their first. Even the introduction of the Yo-Yo test has forced the players to work on their fitness in order to get into the Indian team. However, there also remains chatter among players like Rohit Sharma, who often get people engaged in fitness debates. But, as far as the strength and conditioning coach of Team India, Ankit Kaliyar, is concerned, Rohit is as fit as Kohli.
He said in a chat that “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.”
