Virat inspires me to be fit: Mithali Raj
New Delhi, Nov 30 (IANS) India Women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj on Thursday heaped praise on skipper Virat Kohli and said it is commendable how he stays focused on staying fit throughout the year.
“It feels great that all of them are getting their due, and that people are finally recognising them,” the 34-year-old said at the CNN-News18 Indian of the Year 2017.
“I’ve come so far playing cricket in an era where it was not really appreciated, and responding to trolls is not really worth my time.
“There are so many people who inspire me every day, not one person. But if I do have to name someone, it’s got to be Virat Kohli, for bringing the focus on fitness. Be it the men or women, everyone wants to be the best in international cricket,” Raj added.
