It becomes irrelevant once you have the ability to execute better than the rest.

    Also we should not lose sight of exactly what Viru has achieved in Test Match Cricket, it is not as though he is some glorified slogger in the mould of say Luke Wright, Viru is one of only 4 men, Bradman included to make 2 Test triple hundreds and he was just a few runs away from making a 3rd.
    Brilliant post.

    So it's just coincidence that when his fitness has taken a turn for the worse, so have his performances then?

    The two are unrelated you do not make two 300's without being in decent shape in any case because both were made in very hot and testing conditions plus he is also having to run his partners singles.

    Revolutionary concept; fitness changes over time. And, in Viru's case, his performances have changed with it.

    FMD how can anyone really suggest fitness doesn't have an effect on your batting?

    Sehwag has been expanding exponentially for a year or two, and his returns have been contracting at the same rate.

    Actually tbf Sehwag's hardly overweight by cricketing standards . I think it's more a 'I can't be bothered to throw myself around' when in the field to use an example, rather than he physically can't.

    Fitness for batting is just a seriously underrated componnent imo.

    It's a known fact that decision making is impaired when one's body is under physical stress. The better a player's body copes with running, heat, exhaustion and physical stress (ie the fitter a player) the better chance of better decision making too.
