Irrespective of whether a player is playing, his fitness should be his priority – Sehwag

Lucknow: The way Virender Sehwag used to bat in an explosive manner, he also answers questions in a similar manner. These days there is a lot of cricket being played in the country. The World Cup of T20 cricket which is going to be played in Australia from next month how can it be possible for former cricketers to escape this hysteria of cricket, which is why former cricketers from all over the world are camping in India these days on the pretext of Legends Cricket League and reminding all of the good old days with their performances.

The Lucknow phase of the Legend Cricket League is currently going on at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Stadium, Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. On this occasion, Gujarat Giants team captain Virender Sehwag  interacted with the journalists at a well-known hotel in the city. He was accompanied by Kevin O’Brien, Parthiv Patel, team coach Venkatesh Prasad. On this occasion, Veeru answered the questions of the journalists in his impeccable style. However, the journalists were disappointed when Sehwag initially said that questions should be asked only on the Legends Cricket League.

On the question of fitness at this age, Sehwag said that it is obvious that I am 40+, so age has an effect on the body but my mind is still working. Sehwag said that every player should think about fitness whether he is playing or not. If you are fit then your life will be good and sports too. Sehwag said in response to another question that you will see that every year the competition will increase in this league, even now many former players do not even know about the draft of this league. Next year more people will show their interest in it. Then the competition will increase and if you want to maintain yourself in this competition, then you have to pay attention to your fitness as well.

Sehwag said that after leaving the game, I can pay very little attention to my fitness but if I want to play in this league next year, then I have to improve my fitness. Sehwag said that the good thing right now is that most of the cricketers in most of the teams are 40+ so the competition is level in terms of fitness, although he cited the example of Jacques Kallis of South Africa to say that he is older than us but very fit.  So in the coming time such fit players will increase.
