The trainer also explained that there is another intense training session involved, which sees players having their one hand virtually tied behind their back while they sprint. "Changing different starting positions adds more chaos and challenges movement patterns," the trainer further explained.
Kohli on fitness
Virat Kohli has been vocal about fitness
As far as fitness is concerned, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been quite vocal about it, not just for him, but for the team.
Kohli said that fitness is something that needs to come from within, as it was the same for him, since he wanted to become a successful international cricketer.
