Team India captain Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the fittest cricketers in the world. The 31-year-old might be stuck at his home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but he has ensured to remain on top of his physical conditions even while no cricketing action took place in the past three months.


Posting a video on his Instagram account on Friday, Kohli revealed the one exercise he would pick if he had to do the same workout every day. As former England batsman Kevin Pietersen tried to troll Virat on the workout video, the Indian talisman ensured to have the last laugh.

When Pietersen asked Kohli to ride a bike every day as the workout that he could do every day, Kohli brushed it off saying, ‘after retirement’.


“If I had to make a choice of one exercise to do every day, this would be it. Love the power snatch,” Kohli captioned the video.

Commenting on the post, KP said: ‘Get on a bike’. Kohli, in his reply to the South African-born-British, wrote: ‘after retirement’.


As cricket in India stands suspended due to the novel coronavirus, Virat has been doing everything he can to keep himself fit and agile, especially with the gyms around the country closed due to ongoing health crisis.

Earlier on Thursday, Kohli had shared a video attempting and acing Hardik Pandya’s flying push-up challenge with a clap.
