Along the NBA and NFL routes, Indian cricketers are tested for genetic fitness.
And captain Virat Kohli synchronized training scheme, Indian cricket is now a DNA test to reveal a person’s genetic blueprint for fitness, to increase the bar to levels not seen so far.
Tests help athletes improve their speed, fat burning, endurance, recovery time and muscle building. It is understood that BCCI has launched the test under the recommendation of team coach shankar basu to provide a more comprehensive fitness program for the national team. DNA testing or genetic fitness tests give an idea of how more than 40 genes relate to a person’s health, health and nutrition. Each cricketer’s DNA was then combined with the environmental data of individual weight and diet for a comprehensive analysis.
“Yes, we have begun the Indian cricket team of DNA testing for some time, in line with the new fitness parameters, which is set by the team management, DNA testing is the NFL (basketball) and the United States in the NBA. “The idea was put forward by shankar basu, which proved to be very beneficial. In order to test each participant, BCCI costs between 25,000 and 30,000 rupees, which is the nominal amount, “a senior official at BCCI told the PTI not to be named.
Previously, the Indian cricket team had been tested for sebum, the percentage of body fat, and then the DEXA test. “The skin test took a long time, but the results were not accurate enough, so the DEXA test was used to calculate the percentage of body fat.” DNA testing is ongoing to know that the body needs to maintain a specific percentage of fat, “officials, who knows the module, further add.
As of now, the percentage of body fat in the national team has been capped at 23 per cent, which is the standard for most international cricket teams, including Pakistan and New Zealand. It is understood that some cricketers do not know why, after rigorous training, they cannot reduce the proportion of fat to a certain level. “From some of them have a lot of milk, because it is generally believed that milk gives you strength, and then they found that although the training, their body is not to measure the requirements of the modern game.

One player whose strength and endurance has been greatly improved is Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been playing the ODI and T20 international organizations.
Since the champions league began, Bhuvneshwar has played 19 ODI and seven T20 international, purely because of a new fitness routine after getting his genetic fitness report. DNA testing is considered to be a test of the body’s ability, and what diet and exercise is most effective for a particular player. Basu’s coach is preparing detailed training and nutrition guidelines for each player individually tailored to their physical needs.
