Debasis Sen, Cape Town: India skipper Virat Kohli once again showed why he is being regarded as the fittest cricketer in world cricket at the moment. Kohli, during his 160 runs innings against South Africa in the third ODI at Newlands scored 100 runs from running between the wickets. He took 75 (1s), 22 (2s) & 3 (3s) while the remaining 60 runs came from boundaries. The previous best for India was by former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly who got 98 of his runs (130 vs Sri Lanka in 1999) in singles, twos and threes.

Kohli has rightfully established himself as arguably the best cricketer of modern times and one of the best in history in due course to his career but unlike other athletes, he seems to get better with age. And, the Indian cricket team skipper credits his fitness and workout regime for all his success on the field.

“Look I am going to be 30 this year. The decision was in terms of extending the quality of cricket that you want to play at an older age as well. I want to play this kind of cricket even when I am 34-35. That’s why I train so much. Because I am a guy who likes to play with intensity. Once that is gone, I don’t know what I am going to do on the field. I try to protect that. I try to train as much as I can. Keep a check on my diet. Those things pay off on days like these. When the team needs it, and you stand up, and you are able to pull through. Amazing things happen when you are thinking of the team throughout. As an athlete you crave for days like these. These are the days that give you satisfaction. As a batsman as an India player, I am really happy I was able to contribute to the mood in the change room,” said Kohli during his post match conference.

So what goes into the making of “beast” Kohli is. Here is a sneak peek into the man’s diet chart.
