Want to be a professional cricketer?
The latest trend in this modern world is to be a fitness freak. More often than not, the celebrity is a role model for this generation. When the fans see their models fit, they are also ambitious to follow such professionals. In sports, a player has often focused on their fitness–to stay longer in the game.
Majorly, Team India skipper Virat Kohli is one of the players who inspire people when it comes to fitness. At the same time, cricket requires stamina and strength to play in the field. But there have been some players who have not passed the set benchmark of fitness but have had played well in cricket.
Here are 5 players who have proved fitness is not the decisive factor to play international cricket:
Wicketkeeper-batsman for Pakistan, Sarfaraz Ahmed has proved that his fitness was not the point of concern for his selection in the team. He has played some good cricket for Pakistan. Under his captaincy, Pakistan has won Champions Trophy 2017 in England.
He has been trolled for his fitness during the World Cup 2019. Pakistani fans trolled him for being the unfit captain of Pakistan team. He has been seen yawning during India-Pakistan World Cup match in 2019.
So, he needs to keep himself fit for the game, so that people don’t question his inclusion based on fitness.
