Many Indian cricketers have taken to the ‘stay-fit’ regime recently, possibly keeping in mind the strict fitness criteria implemented in the selection of players to the Indian cricket team.

Skipper Virat Kohli, who is also one on the fittest cricketers in the world, has on several occasions advocated the importance of keeping in shape. And he is surely gathering support from his teammates, especially the younger crop of players, as exhibited by Bumrah’s dedication to staying fit despite his absence from the Test series.

The Yo Yo test that has also raised the benchmark for selection, with veterans such as Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina not making the cut, could be another factor pushing Indian players to maintain their bodies.

Bumrah’s tweet read: “It takes dedication and hard work to consistently improve yourself. #stayfit #RaiseTheBar.”

Fans took to twitter to show their appreciation and approval of Bumrah’s muscular physique. Here are some of the tweets:

This fan on the other hand, decided to take the comical route and dress Bumrah up.

India’s newly discovered death over specialist, Bumrah, is expected to join the team in the limited over matches against Sri Lanka in December.
