MS Dhoni is one of the fittest players in the world, even at the age of 39. The CSK skipper still looks in great shape despite leaving international cricket and only playing competitive matches for 2 months in a year.
Dhoni said, “When you are playing, you don’t really want anyone to say he’s unfit. Performances are something that’s not guaranteed. I wasn’t guaranteeing performances when I was 24, I can’t guarantee when I am 40, but at least if people can’t point finger at me that he’s unfit then that will be a big positive for me. I have to keep up with the younger guys, they are very fast, it’s good to challenge them.”
