“Virat Kohli has decided to become the best athelete in the world,” says India fitness coach


The Indian vice-captain Virat Kohli holds the unique record of scoring the fastest century by an Indian batsman.

Virat Kohli is the fittest Indian cricketer and now has decided to become the best athlete in the world, reveals India and RCB fitness coach Shanker Basu.

Kohli is working specially on his fitness, strength, and the results of that are quite visible.

“Virat has decided to become the best athlete in the world and sky is the limit. There a lot of role models ahead of him in terms of sheer athletic abilities and he will never shy away from competition. He will grab it with both hands,” Basu told ‘bcci.tv’.

“A lot of athletes will say that they are very lucky to find a coach, but I will instead say that Virat Kohli is an exceptional person, so I was very lucky to have an athlete like him. My association with him dates back to eight years through IPL,” Basu said.

“In the last six months, he has put a lot of time in developing his strength, mass and power,” Basu said.
