Mohammed Shami, India’s fast bowler, has been resting since the ODI World Cup, but he has made headlines with his comments on fitness. In an interview with a news channel, Shami said that he is the strongest cricketer in the Indian team, and that he can lift 750kg in the leg press.
This comment has been interpreted by some as a dig at former India captain Virat Kohli, who is known for his fitness. Kohli often posts pictures of himself working out on social media, and he has been praised for his dedication to his physical condition.
However, Shami has not explicitly named Kohli in his comments. He could be referring to any of the other Indian cricketers who post about their fitness on social media.
Whatever the case may be, Shami’s comments have sparked a debate about the importance of fitness in cricket. Some people believe that fitness is essential for success at the highest level, while others argue that it is not the only factor that matters.
Shami’s fitness is certainly impressive. He is a key member of the Indian team, and he is expected to be a key player in the upcoming Test series against South Africa.
