Yo-Yo fitness test has become a must for cricketers who want to represent their country. Players like Ambati Rayudu, Yuvraj Singh and others were ignored once after failing to meet the minimum requirement of a yo-yo fitness score of 16.1. Indian skipper Virat Kohli emphasises on fitness and has a score of 19. His score is bettered by only two Indian players — Manish Pandey (19.2) and Mayank Dagar (19.3).
As per reports by PakPassion.Net, Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali excelled in the camp organised to select squad for Asia Cup 2018. Hasan registered a yo-yo fitness score of 20 which is higher than any Indian player. Pakistan skipper did well with a score of 18.2 whereas 36-year-old Shoaib Malik’s score was 17.8.
India will be facing Pakistan on September 19 in Asia Cup 2018. According to reports, the tickets of the mega event were sold out within an hour after they were made available. The last time India went up against their arch-rival was in the ICC Champions Trophy final 2017.
So according to reports, recent yo-yo test results:
Hasan Ali 20
Manish Pandey 19.2
Virat Kohli 19
Sarfaraz Ahmed 18.2
Shoaib Malik 17.8#Cricket

The 24-year-old seemed confident ahead of the fixture as he said,
“I would like to do my wicket-taking celebration 10 times against India but let’s see what happens. I will do my best to take wickets for my team and for my fans who want to see my wicket-taking celebrations”
India will be raring to avenge the demoralising defeat in the Champions Trophy final. However, this time they will not have Kohli playing as he has been rested by the selectors. In his absence, Rohit Sharma will be leading the team.
