Yuvraj Singh To Undergo Fitness Test At NCA In Bangalore
Yuvraj Singh is set to undergo a fitness test at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore. The news has come after a day of the announcement of Punjab Ranji Trophy Squad. He was announced as the vice-captain, but later, his name was missing from the list, and the reason which has come out is fitness test.
It is to be noted that the MSK Prasad led selection committee is all set to announce the T20I squad for Australia series in a day or two time and this fitness test is seen as a barometer for Yuvraj to prove his fitness.
Along with Yuvraj, Suresh Raina will also undergo a fitness test there. Both of them are not a regular member of the Indian team now, and poor fitness test is deemed to be the reason for the same.
Recently, both of them were not considered for a place in the side for Sri Lanka series due to failure in passing a fitness test. As per reports, they failed to explain the yo-yo test. Both the players are making efforts to make a comeback in national side and clearing fitness test is the first step towards it.
There can be a case when Raina might be selected in the T20I squad as he is a regular member of the team in this format of the game.
Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh will miss the first game of Ranji Trophy. He will come back in the second game to lead the side. Harbhajan Singh will also miss few games for Punjab. As a result, selectors have given a chance to youngster Jiwanjot Singh to lead the side.
