Bangla Hunt Desk: The Indian cricket team has achieved great success in world cricket over the last few years. And one of the main reasons for the success of the Indian team is fitness. For several years now, it has been mandatory for every cricketer to pass the Yo Yo exam to get a chance in the Indian team. Many rising stars have failed to get a chance in the Indian team due to failing in this Yo Yo Test. Baran Chakraborty got a chance in the Indian team in the recently concluded ODI series against England but his dream of playing in a national team jersey was not fulfilled as he failed a fitness test and had to be dropped.
This time, the former devastating India opener Virender Sehwag opened his mouth with this fitness test. According to Sehwag, fitness is important in sports, but in some cases, talent should be given more importance than fitness. Many talented cricketers in the Indian team are currently dropped from the team for failing fitness tests. In this context, Viru said that the BCCI should give importance to talent and not to fitness.
At the same time, Sehwag said that if a bowler can bowl 10 overs as well as field properly, then his team should have a chance, in which case it should not be seen whether the bowler could pass the Yo Yo Test. Referring to his own time, Viru said that if it had been compulsory for us to pass the Yo Yo Test, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman would never have played in the Indian team jersey. We had to pass the fitness test by getting 12.5 points in our time, most of the time Ganguly, Laxman could not get this point.
