Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been leading Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League since 2011. While he has been playing for the side since 2008, it has never won the title to date, as it has shown promising signs this season.

RCB has Basu Shanker at the helm as its fitness coach, who takes care of strength and conditioning. Meanwhile, Kohli happens to have worked with him for a long time, as the coach happened to be at the helm with Team India a few years back as well.

Recently, Shanker launched his book on strength and conditioning, '100 200 Practical Applications in Strength and Conditioning’. Kohli shared a video of the same, captioned, “Big congratulations to my dear Basu Sir for compiling the holy grail of strength and conditioning insight called '100, 200- Practical Applications in Strength and Conditioning.’ For all S and C coaches and athletes out there, DO NOT miss out on this one. I’m here as an example to vouch for it 200 per cent.”

I’m very happy to launch this book for him. I have written the foreword as well. It wasn’t difficult at all because we understand our journey pretty well. How he has impacted my career and completely changed how I looked at playing this sport, and I couldn’t imagine what I would do if I hadn’t started training with Basu sir. So, I wish you all the best for this launch.”
