"I think it's a combination of both ability and fitness. If you are fit, you can enhance that ability. That is one thing that has been emphasized on while designing the YoYo fitness test. And it is here to stay. Whoever thinks it's a one-off thing, he is sadly mistaken and that person can take a walk," said Head Coach Indian Team

"The philosophy is simple. You pass the test, you play. You don't, you sit. So this is not going to go anywhere. The captain leads from the front, the selectors the management are on the same page. And the boys have responded extremely well,"  said Head Coach Indian Team

The benchmark of the fitness test is set at a minimum 16.1 by the management and according to reports, the management wants to raise the YoYo bar from 16.1 to 16.3.
