    cricketers after retiring

    why do cricketers let themselves go after retiring? why do they usually become fat and old quickly? why can't they stay in shape?

    The older cricketers have have years of drinking it up after games and poor diets but they were doing so much exercise it didn't really matter. Modern players are athletes and treat their bodies the same. Couldn't imagine guys like Michael Clarke letting himself go.

    Because they can.

    It is offensive though.

    Probably because they've stopped training?
    Or something.

    Doesn't seem to have disadvantaged Bjorn Borg.

    Mind, I'll grant that he's something of an exception.

    What about Botham? He's fairly active. TBH if you've had a decent career why not let yourself go after retiring?

    This is because their body is used to doing so much physical excercise in order to stay in shape, and when they don't do that their body loses shape.

    If you look at recent pics of Azharuddin, you'll observe that he is as fit now as he used to 10 years ago. The reason is that he goes to the gym regularly, and is a fitness freak.
