Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina were not able to make to the final list of Team India. Know why

Source: Hindustan Times.

Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina, despite being the magical players, were not able to make it to the final list of Team India for the upcoming ODI and Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka. The primary reason of senior duo failure is the ‘at least’ score in ‘Yo-Yo’ endurance test conducted by National Cricket Academy.

Their age was the cold shoulder for them as the 35-year-old Yuvraj Singh miscarried the latest opportunities that he got and 30-year-old Suresh Raina last played in February in a T20 against England. Consequently, their fitness proved to be detrimental for their selection.

The team has to pass through a series of fitness tests, with ‘Yo-Yo’ endurance test being the most important. This test was used by the earlier generations; it is an advanced way of testing the endurance with ‘beeps’.

As per the reports, the permissible limit for the current team India is 19.5 where the captain, Virat Kohli was easily able to score 21. However, Yuvraj and Raina failed to even touch the limit of 19.5 with Yuvi being barely crossing 16.

The current team think tank, coach Ravi Shastri, skipper Virat Kohli and chairman of selectors MSK Prasad have made it clear that fitness standards are non-negotiable. On an average, the Australian cricketers score 21 in Yo-Yo test. Here Virat, Ravindra Jadeja, Manish Pandey regularly hit that score while others are either touching 19.5 or is hitting above that score”, a BCCI official told PTI.

However, Ravi Shastri in an interview told “only the fittest of the lot will survive and thrive going forward and that’s right up there in the list of priorities.”

What is ‘Yo-Yo’ test and how does it works?

Cones are placed at a distance of 20 meters to mark out lines. A player starts running with a foot behind one of the lines and starts running when signaled. He has to continue running between the cones, turning on the sound of beep.

After every minute or so, the pace gets on quicker and player has to catch up with that speed. If a player is unable to reach on time then, he has to do it before the last two warning beeps. The test comes to an end if he is not able to do so. The entire test is based on software which also records the results.
