  • Recently retired Indian bowler Ashish Nehra, when quizzed about the much-hyped Yo-Yo fitness test which is being used as a parameter for selection, said that he found it easy to clear the test.
  • He said, "I found it easy because as a pacer, I'm fond of running." He went on to reveal that some players like Yuvraj Singh are yet to clear it.

  • Yo-Yo test, an important selection criterion
    Background
  • Earlier this year, BCCI made it compulsory for cricketers to clear the Yo-Yo fitness test if they are to find a place in the national squad.
  • A player is required to achieve the current benchmark of a 16.1 score level to pass the test.
  • Ashish Nehra is among the cricketers who cleared it and thus earned a place in Indian squad just before retirement.

  • Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh reportedly failed the Yo-Yo test
    FACT
    During India team's tour of Sri Lanka, while the non-selection of players like Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh for the limited over series surprised many, it was learnt that this happened because they failed to clear the Yo-Yo test.
