Cricketers Slammed For Healthy Waistlines In IPL, Indian Paunch League Trended On Twitter


Cricketers Slammed For Healthy Waistlines In IPL, Indian Paunch League Trended On Twitter

The Indian Premier League finally started on September 19 with Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians clashing against each other in the tournament opener. While fans loved to see their favourite players in action, one more thing was noticed a lot by everyone and that was healthy waistlines of few cricketers.

Just like us, the cricketers were also locked for the last 4-5 months in their houses due to the coronavirus pandemic because of which they were not able to take part in net sessions. However, many cricketers, especially those who play the International cricket have gym at their homes and few also posted photos and videos of their workout sessions.

Nevertheless in the IPL 2020, three players seem to be bloated – the skipper of Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary and Piyush Chawla. While many fans tried to protect their cricketers by making an excuse of the pandemic and lockdown, there were a number of other netizens who dismissed the excuse saying that they should manage their weight anyhow if they are playing the International level cricket.

After the first match of the league, the former skipper of the Indian hockey team, Viren Rasquinha was so upset with the fitness level of the Indian cricketers that he took to Twitter and slammed them. As per Viren, he is shocked to see that some players in the IPL 2020 are so unfit. Not just this, he goes on to say that he doesn’t think the top players will be able to survive in any other sports with such fitness level.

The famous Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle also took a sly dig at the fitness level of some cricketers on Twitter as he wrote, “Couple of healthy waistlines today…..”

The Indian Twitterati also couldn’t control their anger and displeasure over the healthy waistlines of their favourite cricketers. In fact, netizens went on to call it Indian Paunch League instead of Indian Premier League . Here are some of the selected tweets:
















In the first match of the IPL 2020, CSK defeated MI by 5 wickets and now CSK will be getting ready to face Rajasthan Royals in their second match while MI will be locking horns with Kolkata Knight Riders.
