“The players were given a choice to clear either the 2km-run test, or the yo-yo test. Wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan passed the ‘2km-run test,’ while seamers Jaydev Unadkat and Siddharth Kaul cleared the yo-yo test by achieving a score of 17.1, the new, raised benchmark for the yo-yo test,” a source in the BCCI told TOI.
“Happy faces after clearing the fitness test! #YoYoDone,” tweeted Unadkat.

These fitness tests were conducted for around 20-odd cricketers who are in national reckoning for the limited over series against England at home, and for the T20 World Cup in India later this year. Clearly, Team India doesn’t want to make any compromises on fitness when it comes to its top cricketers.
