Indian captain Virat Kohli is one of the fittest cricketers in the world. The 32-year-old run-machine doesn’t shy away from working on his fitness on a regular basis. The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain is known for his physique and hardcore workouts.

Virat Kohli keeps his body in top form so much so that it helps him carry out his batting form. A decade ago, Kohli had chubby cheeks but as the years progressed, he developed a penchant for fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

Since then, he underwent a major transformation and his overall fitness helped him turn into a world-class batsman. He is the only player who has a phenomenal batting average of 50+ across formats.

4. Ravindra Jadeja

If hitting the stumps bulls-eye is an art, then Ravindra Jadeja is the topper of it. How often have we seen Jadeja affecting brilliant run-outs in the passage of play. Be it long on, long off or any other region, the man with strong arms has often helped the team in effecting run-outs.

Besides that, he has taken some incredible catches in his cricketing career. The cricket fraternity has hardly seen the 32-year-old dropping catches because he doesn’t drop many. This is the main reason why he is one of the best fielders in the world.

Ravindra Jadeja’s fitness is one of the main reasons why his fielding has been top-notch. He took 38 catches in Tests, 60 catches in ODIs, 21 catches in T20Is and 68 catches in IPL. The all-rounder affected 7 run-outs in Tests, 21 run-outs in ODIs, 7 run-outs in T20Is and 22 run-outs in IPL.
