The Yo-Yo test is part of the selection criteria for the team: the BCCI decides during the review meeting


The Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) held a performance review meeting in Mumbai on Sunday. The meeting was attended by BCCI President Roger Binny, Honorary Secretary Jay Shah, Team India Captain Rohit Sharma, Team India Head Coach Rahul Dravid, Head of National Cricket Academy (NCA ) VVS Laxman and Selection Committee Chairman Chetan Sharma. Notably, the BCCI had decided to hold the review meeting after India’s exit from the ICC T20 World Cup semi-final.

The roadmap for the upcoming ODI World Cup in India was discussed at the meeting, along with issues related to player availability and workload management.

The physical condition of Indian cricketers has been a concern, with players like Deepak Chahar regularly breaking down. First peacekeeper Jaspirt Bumrah has also been out for a long time with a back injury.

The BCCI also had three key recommendations for the Indian cricket team going forward:

1. Emerging players will need to play a substantial domestic season to be eligible for selection to the national team.

2. Yo-Yo and Dexa testing will now be part of the selection criteria and will be implemented in the central player pool custom roadmaps.

3. Keeping in mind the men’s FTP and the preparations for the ICC CWC 2023, the NCA will work in tandem with the IPL franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023.

Notably, in 2022, Team India had disappointing campaigns at the Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates, as well as the T20 World Cup in Australia.

In the Asian Cup, India failed to reach the final after losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super Four stage.

In the T20 World Cup, India suffered a crushing 10-wicket loss to eventual champions England in the semi-finals.
