 Never stop working hard even on rest days: Kohli's motto Virat Kohli: Courtesy: Twitter

Virat Kohli never ceases to surprise his teammates, opponents and cricket fans with his exploits on the field. The Indian captain is always hungry for success and is an epitome of fitness. The secret of Kohli's success has been his eagerness to stretch himself and willingness to work hard.

Kohli, fresh from a hugely successful tour of Sri Lanka where India won all three Test matches, five One-Day Internationals and the lone Twenty20 International, posted a picture of him sweating it out in the gym on Twitter. The 28-year-old was quick to point out to one and all in his tweet that for him rest day is a cheat day and one should never stop to work hard.

The failure to clear the 'Yo-Yo' endurance test at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru was the primary reason why Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina were not considered for the limited overs series in Sri Lanka.

The Indian team regularly undergoes a series of fitness tests with 'Yo-Yo' endurance test being the most important of them.

It is an advanced version of the 'beep' test that was used by teams of earlier generations. The current Indian team is considered to be the fittest by a fair distance.

It has been learned that for the present Indian team, the acceptable 'Yo-Yo' score is 19.5 and upwards. Kohli, easily the fittest Indian cricketer, scores around 21 in the test.
