The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reintroduced the Yo-Yo test as one of the parameters to assess a player’s fitness. It’s a test which is designed by Danish sports scientist Dr Jens Bangsbo and was used to optimise training and improve endurance. It was scrapped when the Covid pandemic hit the world.
