KL Rahul magnificent effort on boundary against West Indies in 3rd ODI at Cuttack.
The importance of fitness has gone sky high in cricket. Earlier, the players did not care about their fitness levels and used to eat whatever they want. This was the main reason why the players of the 19th and the 20th century were lazy fielders.
However, in the 21st century, the concept of cricket has modernized a lot. The players are focused on their fitness than their game because if they are not fit and play well then too they will not get a place in the team.
Players like Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, and KL Rahul have set benchmarks for fielding in Indian cricket. The aforementioned players always perform better than the others because they are in good shape and they have the physical capabilities to do things that normal people cannot.
It is very tough for anyone to give his 100 percent on the field in a 50-overs match however, the Indian players have constantly defied the odds with their incredible fielding skills.
KL Rahul tries his best but one mistake gives away 6 runs
KL Rahul who used to keep the wickets in the earlier phases of his career has evolved a lot as a player. He is a more technically sound batsman right now and also, he is an acrobatic fielder.
The newly-elected captain of Kings XI Punjab was fielding for the Men in Blue in the deep during their series decider match against West Indies.
As the fans might know that Shimron Hetmyer and co. decimated India today and when Hetmyer slammed one delivery of Shardul Thakur on the boundary line, Rahul gave his best effort, however, he could not save the boundary. The 6 runs would have hurt the fans but Rahul won their hearts with his effort.
