Prithvi Shaw failed the yo-yo test ahead of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which begins on March 26. It will not, however, prevent him from playing for the Delhi Capitals in the lucrative league. He was one of the players that attended a BCCI camp for cricketers to examine their injuries and fitness.
Shaw is not currently on the central contract, but he was summoned to the NCA to provide an update on his health. The fact that he failed the test indicates that the results are unsatisfactory.
Prithvi Shaw Fails Yo-Yo Test
The current Yo-Yo test qualification score for males is 16.5 and it is believed that the Mumbai opener has a score of less than 15.
“These are just fitness updates. Obviously, it doesn’t stop Prithvi from playing for Delhi Capitals in IPL. It’s just a fitness parameter and not the be-all and end-all,” a BCCI source said.
Prithvi Shaw was recently a member of the Mumbai team that competed in the Ranji Trophy. He appeared in three straight games but failed to make an impression, scoring only 107 runs in four innings at a 26.75 average. Shaw’s fitness difficulties, according to the source, may have flared up as a result of tiredness from playing red-ball matches in the domestic circuit.
“Look, he has played three Ranji matches back-to-back. Once you play three first-class games on the bounce, the fatigue can also affect your Yo-Yo score,” the source added.
Prithvi Shaw’s Instagram Story
As media expressed their views about Shaw, and as social media and the internet were flooded with stories about him, the youngster responded and cautioned the public about Karma. “Please don’t judge me, when you don’t know my situation. U are creating your own Karma…,” Shaw said on his Instagram story.
Shaw last appeared for India in an international match on July 25, 2021, when India faced Sri Lanka in Colombo. Despite the fact that the top-order batsman made his international debut in the longest format of the game when he was a member of the squad during the 2018 home series against the West Indies, it has been over a year and a half since he was re-inducted into the Playing XI.
