After becoming a name to reckon with in international cricket, Virat Kohli struck off mutton rolls and choley bhaturey from his diet chart. And not so surprisingly, fitness freak MS Dhoni isn’t any different.
Soon after retiring from Test cricket, the former Indian captain decided to give up on his favourite food, which comprised butter chicken, naan, milkshakes and soft drinks.
At a recent event in Mumbai, Captain Cool was asked about his food habits. And he explained how his food habits changed completely after quitting Test cricket.
“Yes, the food habits have changed. When I made my debut, it used to be on butter chicken, naan and milkshakes with lots of chocolates and soft drinks. Once I turned 28, the chocolate was off, the milk shake was off. After quitting Test cricket, all the healthy food came in. The breads, the kebabs all those things came in,” he said.
Dhoni retired from Test cricket in the middle of India's tour of Australia in 2014.
Even at 36, Dhoni is one of the fittest cricketers in world cricket. He recently won the Indian Premier League for the third time with Chennai Super Kings. He will be back at work for Team India during the limited-overs tour of England.
