At present, the cricketers in the Indian team seem to be extremely fit. All the players are seen working hard on their fitness. When first MS Dhoni and then Virat Kohli were the captain of the Indian team, Indian players seem to have got this habit of fitness. However, at the same time, some players also get injured. Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has now made a controversial statement on the same issue.
Indian athletes are seen in the gym every time. The pictures of this are also going viral on social media. Indian athletes try to increase their strength by lifting weights. Virender Sehwag raised this exact point. He said that Indian athletes are getting injured due to weightlifting. Speaking to a YouTube channeler, Sehwag said,
“I think weightlifting has no place in cricket. Weightlifting will certainly increase your strength, but it will also make your body stiffer. Rather, you should do the exercises necessary to improve your game. Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni have never been out of the team due to back pain.”
Sehwag claimed that weightlifting was the reason why many players in the Indian team suffered from back pain. Sehwag said that you should do the same type of exercise because others are doing it.
Indian vice-captain Hardik Pandya was out of the Indian team for a long time due to a back injury. Also, Jasprit Bumrah has also not played any cricket for six months. He has undergone back surgery and may take some time to recover.
