There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Yo-Yo Test around the Indian cricket team. Many players who have been in brilliant form in the domestic circuit, as well as the IPL, have been not selected for the national as well as the A teams because they did not meet the minimum fitness protocol set by the Indian team management.
This has led to some people calling the strict protocol unfair as they believe form should be the first parameter which should lead to the selection of a player in a side. Ambati Rayudu and Sanju Samson, arguably two of the best Indian performers with the bat in the IPL got selected and then dropped from the India and the A teams as they could not meet the minimum mark of 16.1 set by the BCCI, which is mandatory for the players to meet if they want to be a part of the squad.
But according to a recent report in trusted newspaper Mumbai Mirror, the minimum marks prescribed by the BCCI in the Yo-Yo Test is very lenient and the least of all the top teams in international cricket.
Here we take a look at what the minimum requirements are for a player of other international teams, to pass the Yo-Yo Test and be selected for their teams.
