Yo-Yo test is conducted in NCA – National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. Hardik Pandya is out of the action since World Cup 2021 and Venkatesh Iyer is playing as an All rounder in his absence in the Indian Cricket team.

According to the reports Prithvi Shaw failed to pass the Yo-Yo test. Prithvi scored less than 15 in the test while the qualification score for men is 16.5
