Shanker Basu

Role Strength and Conditioning Coach

Widely lauded as the best trainer in the country, S Basu is the man who sets the Royal Challengers Bangalore apart with their athletic prowess and agility on the field.

He is the man behind the muscle of Gaylestorms, the quick feet of Kohli, the strength of Zaheer and the sublime fielding of AB de Villiers.

Not surprising, considering his past as a trainer at the National Cricket Academy and as a sprinter who represented India at the Asian Junior Championship in Tokyo in 1987. With a best time of 10.6 seconds for 100 metres and 21.5 for 200 metres, he is the man to go to when it's about working on strength, endurance, reflexes and agility.

Basu is the director of the Primal Patterns Holistic Fitness Studio in Chennai.
