Rohit Sharma Clears Yo-yo Test, Will Play in Ireland and England Series
Team India opener, Rohit Sharma has cleared the yo-yo test with flying colours and will be seen in action in Ireland and England for the limited overs series.
The vice-captain of the limited-overs team, Sharma had failed the yo-yo test twice during the Indian Premier League. Hence vice-captain in Tests, Ajinkya Rahane was kept as a potential standby if Rohit fails to clear the yo-yo test on Wednesday.
It will be a huge relief for India, as Rohit is an integral part of the Indian limited-overs side. His contribution ever since being elevated as an opener during the Champions Trophy in 2013.
He has been one of the most consistent batsmen for India in the limited-overs format. Over the last 4-5 years, Rohit Sharma has batted quite superbly. It would have been a shame had he not passed the yo-yo test.

Recently it was Suresh Raina who replaced Ambati Rayudu in the ODI side. The latter had made a return to the ODI squad after a brilliant season with the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.
However, Rayudu was withdrawn immediately after he failed to pass the yo-yo test. It was a big blow to Rayudu who worked hard to make a national comeback.
Meanwhile coming back to Rohit, he wasn’t in the best of touches during the IPL. For the first time in the tournament, he failed to notch up more than 300 runs in a single season. His performance also reflected in his team’s performance.
The Champions of the 2017 edition failed to make it to the playoffs. They got eliminated after losing their last group game against the Delhi Daredevils. Had they won that match, Mumbai would have still qualified for the playoffs.
