Feels test scores have to be put up on the Board website
The Yo Yo and Dexa tests have become the order of the day for India’s international cricketers. Recently, Sanju Samson was dropped from the India-A team tour of England, Mohammed Shami for the one-off Test against Afghanistan and Ambati Rayudu for the ODI series against England after failing to pass the Yo Yo test.
The Indian squads were picked on May 8 and the three players were informed that the Yo Yo test would be conducted in June. “Anyone who visits the gym every day will clear the 16.1 score. In Australia and New Zealand, it’s a high of 19 while Pakistan has a starting score of 17,’’ said a BCCI official.
A BCCI senior official refused to comment on the tests being conducted by the support staff of the Indian team.
The official also revealed that the BCCI members have not been informed about the decision taken by the Indian team management and NCA to hold the tests.
Another BCCI official said: “These are policy matters that cannot be taken independent of the BCCI. No one is against the players being asked to reach a high standard of fitness.
“But it’s obligatory of the BCCI to tell its members about the Yo Yo tests before the start of the season.
