If Virat Kohli was thinking his one-hand push up challenge would make others praise him for his outstanding fitness then the India skipper was absolutely wrong as his former Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Dale Steyn came up with a more challenging and hilarious challenge that is bound to leave Kohli as well the fans in splits.
In addition to his extraordinary exploits on the cricket field, Kohli has also received widespread praise for his exemplary fitness which has played a big role in making him arguably the best cricketer in the world right now. The Indian batting star also inspires others to adapt a healthy lifestyle and consistently shares videos and photos of his workouts on social media to motivate his fans.
On Saturday (September 16), he posted another video of himself doing push ups with one hand and wrote:“How many one handed push ups can you do?”
Well, Kohli would not have thought that anyone would come up with even a more challenging push up drill as Steyn posted a hilarious reply, writing: “Impressive bud! But how many no hand push ups can you do…? Haha”
Meanwhile, Kohli is currently gear up for the upcoming five-match series against Australia. The series will be an opportunity for Kohli to surpass Ricky Ponting‘s record of 30 ODI centuries and become second in the list of most ODI centuries. The 28-year old is currently on level with Ponting and is just behind Sachin Tendulkar. But while he keeps on breaking record every now and then, he made it sure that personal milestones are never his priority.
Speaking ahead of the first game against Australia, he said: I don’t play for the three-figure mark maybe that’s why I end up crossing it more times because I am not thinking about it. So I don’t put myself under pressure in terms of ‘I need to achieve a landmark’. For me, what’s most important is to win the match for the team. As I said before, even if I am 98 not out or 99 not out, I don’t mind, as long as I win the game. In that process things end up happening because you want to stay till the end. If there is enough runs on the board you end up achieving those landmarks, because you are thinking of that end result not about you reaching that landmark. So my motivation has never been that, it will never be that.”
