You always find a way to get yourself up for training: Ricky Ponting
Virat's probably had a 10 or 12-year run where hasn't had many down times. But there was a lot of talk and conjecture around the IPL about how tired and burnt out he might be. That's for him to work out and assess and find ways to improve, whether it's a technical thing or a mental thing."
"One thing I do know from experience is that quite often you bluff yourself as a player that you're not actually tired, that you're not physically or mentally tired.
You always find a way to get yourself up for training, you always find a way to get yourself up for a game. It's not until you actually stop and have a couple of days do you realize how tired and fatigued you are," he added.
