Virat Kohli is one of the fittest cricketers in the world but he admitted that he was not the fastest in the team. After winning their maiden Day/Night Test against Bangladesh, skipper Kohli posted a photo on Twitter with Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant with the caption, “Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, it’s almost impossible to outrun him”. In the photo, Jadeja is ahead of Kohli and Pant during a training session.

Jadeja is one of the best fielders in the world. The all-rounder pulls of stunning catches and sensational run-outs to run the game around when he is not batting or bowling.

The 31-year-old led India to their record-breaking fourth consecutive Test win by an innings on Sunday in India’s first-ever pink-ball Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Kohli became the fastest to 70 international hundreds and also the second-fastest to 27 Test hundreds equalling Sachin Tendulkar’s record.

On the other hand, Pant has been released to play in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored 28 runs against Haryana on Monday.

However, the 22-year-old will return for international duty as India take on West Indies in the three T20I series starting December 6. Jadeja has returned to the T20I squad too replacing Krunal Pandya. Also, Kohli will captain the side after he was rested for the T20I series against Bangladesh which India won by 2-1 under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
