8 Indian Players with Highest Scores in YO-YO Test

With the increase in the level of competition, fitness as emerged as a new asset for players.

All over the world, cricket boards have increased the criteria of selection and escalated it to a different level.

The Board Of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) has been the foremost among the nations who are quite serious regarding the Yo-Yo Tests. Such has been the seriousness regarding the test that failing it would often lead to the player being expelled from the team.

Over the years we have seen, these tests strengthen the overall fitness of Indian team. With players like Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey India boasts of some of the fittest cricketors of the world.

All in all, these tests have changed the complexion of the game.

Here we have a look on the Indian players scoring the highest in Yo-Yo Tests.

Siddhart Manimaran

A relatively unknown name, Siddhart Manimaran is a slow left arm orthodox bowler.

In the 2020 IPL he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He didn’t get to play any matches for them and now plies his trade for the Delhi Capitals who bought him ahead of the 2021 IPL.

His bowling may not have come to display, but he garnered quite a lot of news when he scored 17 in the Yo-Yo Test, a testimony of his great fitness.

Rishabh Pant

A swashbuckling left handed batsman, Rishabh Pant has been on the rise in recent years..

He has currently risen to the 6th spot in the ICC batting rankings after a heroic performance in Gabba and an equally skillful one in the home series against England.

In spite of being subjected to constant body-shaming and trolls, he has proved his importance in every field for India.

Of all the achievements, one major one is that he scored 17.2 in Yo-Yo Tests, an evidence of the fact that inspite of being trolled heavily, he is here to stay.

Ashish Nehra

Tall and lanky, we wouldn’t expect Ashish Nehra to be in this list.

One thing we all must agree that Ashish Nehra has been one of the worst fielders in the Indian Cricket history.

But there is the fact that Ashish Nehra scored 18.5 in the Yo-Yo test, a score much ahead of his peers. Add the fact, that he did it at an age of around 35 shows us how durable he had been over the years.

Virat Kohli

This is the one name we all expected to be in the list. Virat Kohli has brought the cult of fitness in the cricket world.

Those full length dives, the spectacular running between the wickets have all proved Virat Kohli to be the fittest cricketer of the generation.

It was no surprise that Kohli would be one among the easiest choices for thr the highest scorers in the Yo-Yo test.

It is the fitness standards which he has set which has established India as the country with one of the fittest cricketers in the world.

He scored 19 in the Yo-Yo test.

Hardik Pandya

Explosive, Dynamic and Audacious- these are some of the most effective words which describe Hardik Pandya.

Given to the fielding starts he’s set, a score of 19 in the Yo-Yo test is quite remarkable.

Hardik Pandya has been immensely important to the Indian team.

Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey, though, in and out of the team, but has performed remarkably in the limited chances he’s got.

Apart from taking extraordinary catches and instilling inspiration in the team with his fielding, Manish Pandey has been quite much of a fitness freak on the field.

No wonder he scored 19.2 in the Yo-Yo test, a score better than even his captain Kohli.

Mayank Dagar

Before being famous as a cricketer, Mayank Dagar was famous because of his family lineage. Yes, he is the nephew of Nawab Of Nazafgarh, Virender Sehwag.

The 24 year old, apart from his exploits in the domestic cricket, has taken the fitness bar for a toll when he scored 19.3,a score much more than his compatriots.

Ahmed Banday

An opening batsman from Jammu & Kashmir, Ahmed Banday has been a great prospect for the domestic team.

Moreover, he scored 19.4 in the Yo-Yo tests, a score greater even by the fittest cricketer’s standards.
