Chennai: The raging topic in Indian cricket is the yo-yo fitness test, which has become a decisive factor for selection. While a few former players have criticised the team management for making the fitness test mandatory, the men who matter — coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli — have made it clear that yo-yo is here to stay.

India off-spinner R. Ashwin on Wednesday refrained from commenting whether the controversial test was needed in cricket, but suggested that it wasn’t tough to clear.   “I passed my engineering exams, so yo-yo was’t that tough for me,” Ashwin said.

 

 Ashwin who has been out of the limited-overs side since last June said the desire to wear the India blue still burned deep within. “Like any other cricketer, I want to wear the blue jersey and represent India at the World Cup. That’s obviously there deep within. However, at this stage of my career, physically and mentally, I am just focusing on enjoying cricket. If I land an opportunity, I want to be in a good frame of mind to take it with both hands,” he said.
