    Most Physically Fit Cricketer

    Who is, currently, the most physically fit cricketer in the world?

    For me, the likes of Yuvraj, Collingwood, Shoaib Malik, Mohd Kaif, Bravo, and Brett Lee come into mind.

    But if you had to name one, who would it be?

    What are we talking about here, natural physique? Guy who gets injured the least?

    Ponting doesn't seem that tired even after scoring so many runs. Like in the 180's he was running fast as ever.

    McGrath seems to be able to bowl forever.

    But I'm going to say Inzamam Ul-Haq, Shane Warne, Arjuna Ranatunga and Ramesh Powar.

    Brett Lee has to be the most athletic cricketer ive ever seen by quite a long distance.

    The list begins and ends with Ntini.

    Nothing else needs to be debated. Im not his biggest fan, but his fitness, dedication and training is above that of anyone else.

    Brett Lee and Makhaya Ntini are the fast bowlers that spring to mind. But I would have to say the ultimate cricketing athlete would be either Dwayne Bravo or Andrew Symonds.

    Well I heard Ntini runs 10 km every morning, even on match days.

    Lee and Ntini are the obvious ones. Among batsmen, Hayden has always been phenomenally fit, though I guess he's getting a bit older now and that might be declining. Ponting is probably also up there, at least in recent times.

    Also, there is regular bleep test done for cricketers to identify cardiovascular fitness, and in the Indian team Mohd Kaif always comes out on top.

    But then again I am talking about overall physical fitness levels, not just cardio (however it is one of the main aspects).

    Yuvraj Singh
    Andrew Symonds

    Lee and Symonds immediately came to mind. Don't really pay much attention to it though.

    Lee I reckon.. I read somewhere he could run the 100m in 10.9 seconds or something crazy like that. Plus he's what 30 now and he still bowls as fast as ever.
