Average fielding and drop catches are not new in Indian cricket, but when all this happens with the new standards of fitness then it is a surprise. It seems very unbelievable that the players are in good shape. Despite this, they are not able to do justice to the standards of fielding. The captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli (Virat kohli) has also admitted that he is not happy with the body language of the Indian players in the third T20 match against England (India vs England). When Rahul Tewatia and Varun Chakraborty failed the fitness test before the T20 series, Kohli insisted that he would not compromise on fitness.
Virat Kohli’s fitness obsession is discussed all over the world, but where is it taking the team? Former Indian captain Virender Sehwag answered this question. Sehwag referred to an incident in 2011, when young Virat Kohli was part of India’s Test and limited overs cricket team. Virender Sehwag told Cricbuzz, ‘I last visited England in 2011-12 to play two Tests. I played one match at the Oval and the other at Birmingham. There was a chart of fitness standards in the dressing rooms of all the county teams. I think the fitness standards that India has taken, they have come from there itself.
Virender Sehwag revealed that all the players are thrilled about it on the field, but most of them failed miserably. He also disappointed Kohli. Kohli will not accept it. When our team tried to do this in 2011-12, half the team was unsuccessful in it. Sehwag said, ‘I think this is what Virat has chosen. If England has fitness standards, then we should have. Ever since Kohli took over the captaincy, he insisted on equal fitness. Some tests have to be passed. Only then we can give the best result.
