RCB batting line-up: Fitness trainers on the go..

royal challengers

In today's fast paced lives, going to the gymnasium and shaping our bodies is becoming a rarity. But don't you worry, our batsmen turned fitness trainers have taken up the cause towards a fitter and healthier living!

Upper body specialists:

Yes, you read that right! Don't you think our dearest captain Virat Kohli can teach us a thing or two about some flexible wrist work? Do not forget to keep an eye on his tremendous flicks on the leg, which explains the smooth twisting and turning of his wrists.

He may be diminutive, but Parthiv Patel's impeccable use of his arms are enough to fetch him a boundary. Ever thought of impersonating his batting style for a good stretch? Think about it! There's also young Vijay Zol, whose high back lift is a good way to exercise those untouched muscles.

Tanmay Mishra's ability to go for his shots high in the air often resembles a physical training class, taking us back to school days. Remember the whistle counts that demanded to be followed? Well, it's never too late to go back to basics!

Lower body experts:

Well, could there be anyone else to demonstrate this category? AB de villiers is someone who has innovated more shots than any other batsman. Have a look at his match pictures – they have all the possible movements of his knee, ankle, foot, torso, etc. Not a bad way to warm up those stiffened nerves, eh? Plus, he's also constantly making fielders run around him, pretty much like a run on the treadmill, isn't it?

Australia's Nic Maddinson also bats on similar lines. He goes down on one knee, and dismisses those kookaburras for boundaries. Yogesh Takawale knows how to bend backs, literally. He hooks and pulls, but not without stretching to and fro.

Now, do we really need bulky trainers and fancy gyms to exercise? I hope not.

I guess, Maddinson is an opener. He bats top the order.
