Virat Kohli is regarded as one of the most lethal batters of the current times. Making his international debut in 2008, Kohli has time and again showed his mettle with his blistering knocks and brilliant shot selection. Apart from his heroics with the bat, the 34-year-old cricketer is also one of the fittest athletes in the world. On many occasions, he has been seen flaunting his strict workout regime and disciplined diet, which has resulted in him being so fit. However, a brilliant example of his fitness can be seen during, where he ran for four runs.
A video was shared by a fan on social media, showing the 2017-Test match between India and Sri Lanka. The video showed how Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara ran for four runs and shared a sweet smile after grabbing the maximum singles on a delivery.
