new Delhi: Today the Fit India Movement launched by the Government of India has been a full year and on the occasion of its first anniversary, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has interacted with many players. Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is one of the most fit players in the country and also an inspiration for many young players. On this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also discussed with Virat Kohli. Kohli is currently playing in the IPL in the UAE and on this occasion, especially through video conferencing, met Prime Minister Modi.
During this dialogue, a lot of interesting things happened between the two. PM Modi asked Kohli that the Chole-Bhature of Delhi would have suffered due to his fitness. Virat laughed and said that too much happened. We used to eat anything while playing in childhood. He said that in the generation in which we started playing, things changed very fast. There was no problem in our skills, but fitness was impacting.
During this dialogue, the Prime Minister asked Kohli questions about the yo-yo test and fatigue, which Virat Kohli answered in his own style. Kohli said that the demand for life has increased nowadays. If you do not improve fitness, then you will be left behind in sports. For the success in sports, not only the skill but also how fit the body and mind are, it also matters. Apart from this, he said that everyone honestly feels tired. If you work hard then you will feel tired. But if your lifestyle is good, eating well, sleep is good, then your recovery will be faster.
Apart from this, Prime Minister Modi asked Kohli whether the captain also has to do this test? On this, Kohli said, ‘This increases the fitness level of the team. Fitness is very important in Test matches. Compared to T20 and ODI, Test matches have to be played for five days. Fitness standard matters more in this. That is why I also participate in the Yo-Yo test. If I fail, I will not be available for selection. Skill has always been with us, but fitness is also important. Now our results are coming better due to fitness’.
