Before the limited overs series against England, the new BCCI fitness test has once again come into the limelight. BCCI has recently challenged the players to pass another fitness test in addition to the yo-yo test. In the new fitness test of the BCCI, the players have to complete the two-kilometer race in 8 minutes 15 seconds. But 6 players have failed to pass the new fitness test before the ODI and T20 series against England.
According to the report of Times of India, 20 players were called by the BCCI for the new fitness test. Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Teotia, Nitesh Rana, Siddhart Kaul and Jaydev Unadkat have not been able to pass the BCCI’s new fitness test.
The report claimed that all these players were called for a fitness test at this first National Cricket Academy. Since this test is taken for the first time, all these players will be given one more chance to pass the fitness test.
New fitness test placed after tour of Australia
The Corona virus caused players to stay away from the field for a long time. This has had an impact on the fitness of the players. Many of India’s cricketers were injured during the IPL and Australia tour. In view of this problem, the BCCI announced a new fitness test for the players in addition to the yo-yo test last month.
