Dhoni is one of the fittest cricketers
Meanwhile, since Virat Kohli has taken the reigns of this side, the whole team have witnessed a shift in the fitness. The Men in Blues are currently one of the fittest and competitive sides across the entire world. Team India trainer Shankar Basu has worked hard with the current crop of players to keep this team healthy and fit. However, MS Dhoni has his fitness regime and doesn’t believe too much on powerlifting. In fact, two people who deserve credit for Dhoni’s ability to remain one of the fittest even at this age are former India trainer Ramji Srinivasan and Gregory Allen King. Allen also works as a fitness trainer for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.
Speaking to IANS, a person in the know of things has revealed that MS Dhoni consults these two men for fitness advice. He also added that Dhoni focuses only on those things that help him during the game. He also concentrates on doing core strengthening exercises and develops his boxing skills.
“MS is a natural, to be honest. The energy that he has shown over the years and his fitness level even when the rest of the Indian players weren’t this focused on the area speaks volumes of his knowledge about staying fit and the requirements of a professional cricketer.
This apart, when he does need any guidance, he goes to Ramji and Gregory and the two coordinate to chart out what is best for the former India skipper,” the report said.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni has been in good form since the start of 2019 and will be a force to reckon in the upcoming World Cup. Besides, his mere presence in the field will also do a world for good to skipper Virat Kohli in the marquee event starting from May 30. India will leave for England on May 22 and play two practice games before beginning their campaign on June 5 against South Africa at Southampton.
