सबसे फिट टॉप 5 क्रिकेटर्स

5) सर गैरी सोबर्स
गैरी सोबर्स यकीनन इस खेल के सबसे बड़े खिलाडियों में से एक रहे हैं. एक आकर्षक एथलेटिक शरीर के साथ 6 फुट की ऊंचाई वाले यह खिलाडी अपनी वेस्ट इंडीज टीम का एक महत्वपूर्ण खिलाड़ी है. वह बहुत सुन्दर, आकर्षक हुआ करते थे और जब भी क्रीज़ पर आते तो एक सम्राट की याद ताजा हो जाया करती थी.जब भी वह गेंदबाज़ी करने आते तो इनके सहयोगियों में से कई इन्हे एक घुड़दौड़ का घोडा कहा करते थे .गैरी सोबर्स महानतम हरफनमौला खिलाड़ी थे.

4) महेंद्र सिंह धोनी
फिटनेस को लेकर चर्चा हो और उसमे धोनी का नाम न हो ऐसा हो ही नहीं सकता .धोनी भारतीय टीम के सबसे  फिट खिलाडी हैं .सच तो ये है कि धोनी नॉन-स्टॉप क्रिकेट खेल रहे हैं और वो भी बिना किसी ऐसी चोट के जो इन्हे अनफिट करार कर सके. वे भारत के लिए कई जिम्मेदारी निभाते रहे हैं विकेट कीपिंग, बल्लेबाज़ी और टीम की कप्तानी .ये सब कुछ एक स्वास्थ्य खिलाडी ही पूर्णतः कर सकता है.

3) एबी डिविलियर्स
अब्राहम बेंजामिन डिविलियर्स उर्फ एबी डिविलियर्स एक में तीन का पैकेज हैं ,वह एक महान बल्लेबाज, शानदार विकेटकीपर , और एक विश्व स्तरीय क्षेत्ररक्षक भी हैं. इनकी फिटनेस का उदाहरण लिया जाये तो वह 11 सेकंड में 100 मीटर स्प्रिंट कर सकते हैं. जो वाकई बढ़िया है. वहीँ बल्लेबाजो के साथ साथ वह क्षेत्ररक्षण में भी पूरे तरह से फुर्तीले हैं.

2) एंड्रयू सायमंड्स
एक प्रतिभाशाली क्रिकेटर जो केवल अपने बल पर ही या तो बल्ले, गेंद के साथ या क्षेत्र में मैच की दिशा बदल सकता है.हालांकि, मैदान से बाहर उनका रवैया एक समस्या बन गया था जब उन्हें बांग्लादेश के खिलाफ वनडे सीरीज के लिए हो रही मीटिंग में पहुंचना था लेकिन वह डार्विन में मछली पकड़ने चले गए जिसका खामियाज़ा इन्हे भुगतना पड़ा.

1) जोंटी रोड्स
1990 के दशक से पहले क्रिकेटर केवल क्रिकेट के दो पहलुओं पर ध्यान केंद्रित करते थे, बल्लेबाजी और गेंदबाजी. लेकिन दक्षिण अफ्रीका के इस खिलाडी ने खेल का तरीका व् नजरिया ही बदल दिया. क्षेत्ररक्षण के प्रति खिलाड़ियों का उदासीन रवैया हुआ करता था, विशेष रूप से उपमहाद्वीप में. हालांकि, यह सब ब्रिस्बेन में दक्षिण अफ्रीका और पाकिस्तान के बीच विश्व कप मैच के दौरान , 8 मार्च, 1992 को बदल दिया गया. जोंटी रोड्स की फील्डिंग ने औरो में भी फील्डिंग को लेकर दिलचस्पी जगा दी.

Top 5 Fittest Cricketers Ever

5) Sir Gary Sobers

Gary Sobers

Gary Sobers was like a prophet Muhammad or Jesus Christ sent to the earth to the game of cricket. He was arguably the greatest Cricketer the game has ever seen. With an attractive atheletic build at 6 feet tall, his trim, nimble body moved with the grace of a bird, so characteristic of West Indians. He had a charming walk, graceful, relaxed, leaning forward bent at the knees, and when he came in to the crease it was reminiscent of an Emperor. Many of his contemporaries has described him as a racehorse when he came onto bowl. He reminded fans of the great racehorse Arkle- perhaps the greatest steeplechaser of all time. While Bradman’s status as the greatest batsman is increasingly under threat, no one raises an eyebrow at Garry Sobers being called the greatest allrounder.

4) MS Dhoni

MSD

 

No cricketing discussion on fitness is complete without our very own MSD – arguably the fittest Indian ever to have played cricket. You may not associate him with those diving efforts on the field like for many of the listed cricketers here, but, the fact that this man is playing non-stop cricket and that too without much of an injury problem goes to show that MSD is fit as a fiddle. Keeping wickets is not an easy job where one has to constantly be on their toes especially in humid Indian climate where MSD plays most of his cricket. To add to that, leading the team in itself is a big drainer. No wonder, he is the ultimate ruler in today’s game, when it comes to fitness.

3) AB de Villiers

AB

Abraham Benjamin de Villiers aka AB de Villiers is a three in 1 package: a great batsman, brilliant wicket-keeper, and a world class fielder. That he can sprint 100 meter in 11 seconds is a mere example of the fitness standards that he sets for himself and others to follow. The grace with which he dives around in the field makes fielding a fun to watch. He makes the toughest of fielding situations look like a child’s play. His diving run-out of Simon Katich in 2006 made people compare him to the God of Fielding – Jonty Rhodes himself.

2) Andrew Symonds

A supremely talented cricketer, one who could change the course of a match single-handed with either bat, ball or in the field.

Andrew Symonds brought passion into whatever he did, whether firing down offbreaks or military medium pace, hurling his ungainly bulk round the field or vigorously ruffling the bowler’s hair at the celebration of a wicket.

However, his off-field attitude continued to be a problem and the last nail in the coffin came when he went fishing in Darwin when he should have been at a team meeting in the lead-up to an ODI series against Bangladesh. Symonds was sent home from the series and not picked for the tour of India in late 2008, but cricket lovers across the world hope will never forget this controversial and the fittest Aussie cricketer of our generation.

1) Jonty Rhodes

Before the 1990s, cricketers concentrated only on two aspects of cricket – Batting and bowling. But, a freak from South Africa changed the way game was played. He could change the course of a match single-handedly with his fielding.

The indifferent attitude of the players towards fielding was at its peak especially in the subcontinent. However, it was all changed on March 8, 1992, during a World Cup match between South Africa and Pakistan at Brisbane, when a green shadow with the ball and crashed into the stumps to run out Inzamam-ul-Haq. The legend of Jonty Rhodes was born on this day.

“Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Jonty!” screamed out a newspaper next morning. It was a breakthrough moment for the diminutive Rhodes, who was playing in his first tournament. As it turned out, it wasn’t a one-off show; Rhodes produced many such Superman antics on the field that soon earned him a reputation for purely his fielding. He dived, he leaped, he lunged, he defied gravity while patrolling the point region throughout his career. He wasn’t the tallest of blokes on the ground, but his athleticism and his agility ensured that he more than makes up for his hieght.

A report prepared by Cricinfo in late 2005 showed that since the 1999 Cricket World Cup, he had effected the ninth highest number of run outs in ODI cricket of any fieldsman, with the third highest success rate. Rhodes also represented South Africa at hockey.
