Six Indian cricketers fail to clear 2-km run fitness test

The fitness tests conducted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have hogged the limelight in quite a few instances. Earlier, a number of Indian cricketers were reported to have strained to clear the yo-yo test. This time around, the world’s richest cricket board has introduced a new 2-km run fitness test.
 
According to a top source, wicketkeeper batsmen Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan, batsman Nitish Rana, legspinning allrounder Rahul Tewatia and seamers Siddarth Kaul and Jaydev Unadkat have all failed to clear the new ‘2-km run’ fitness test introduced by the BCCI at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore this week , stated the Times of India.
 
“Since this is a new type of a fitness test, they will all get a second chance to clear it at a fresh date, after some gap.
 
However, if they fail to clear it, then it puts their selection for the forthcoming white-ball series comprising five T20Is and three ODIs against England at home in doubt,” a source told TOI.
