  1. This podcast does not address the elephant in the room. India is unable to generate fast bowlers due to the crappy vegetarian diet in this country. North Indians are tall but undernourished; South Indians are meat eaters mostly but genetically majority r short

  2. @BeerBiceps, In terms of fitness, you forgot to mention one more name James Anderson, A Proper Fast Bowler, Aging Like a Wime, Still Steaming in with Angle on swinging conditions. I hope Basu sir. if any chance he can get to train him, we never know we might see him bowling 5 more years. Haha.
    The Fitness Level of Players has now get them ability to play longer, earlier for a cricketer 34-35 was kind a enough for them, now they take nutritions and fitness level too seriously they add 3-5 more years to their career, But again it varies from body to body.

  3. If you really want fitness advise please listen to Hubberman podcast. The conversation is much deeper unlike this which talks about cricketers. There is nothing much to take away from this.

  4. Amazing podcast series, every episode of serious is very interesting, informative and entertaining love you brother ????????????????????????

  5. Man it’s Pretty cool to see you doing these Interviews Specially In English these sort of podcast reach a vast Yard Because there’s no Language Barrier / Probs from Sri Lanka ??

  6. Hey… Ranveer, this podcast is incredible… got to know more about fitness from an experienced person, different types of training level, diet, nutrients,and knowledge about it. Throughly enjoyed ! ! ! Basu sir , You are awesome 🙂
