BCCI Statement on the World Cup 2024 decision

It was a very productive meeting where we discussed past performance and made plans for upcoming tournaments, including the World Cup and the World Test Championship (WTC). We will prioritise international cricket while preventing a dilution of the IPL. “A BCCI source who was present at the meeting reported”.

The BCCI stated that in addition to the roadmap for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2024, “the issues of player availability, workload management, and fitness parameters were also discussed at length during the meeting.”

Additionally, there won’t be any compromises made regarding fitness, with the Yo-Yo test serving as the primary criterion. The BCCI released a statement following the meeting that read, “The Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of selection criteria and applied in the personalised roadmaps of the central pool of players”.

What is the YOYO Test?

The Beep test is a running, aerobic fitness test that involves jogging between two sets of cones that are 20 metres apart. The Yo-Yo test is a version of the Beep test (incidentally the length of a cricket pitch).

The levels increase from level 5, which has one shuttle, to level 11, which has two shuttles, and so forth, becoming increasingly difficult. 23 is the highest level. A player’s test is over whenever they miss two beeps. The procedure is computer-based, and the outcomes are documented. The Indian cricket team uses 16:1, or 1120 meters, as its benchmark level.

What is The DEXA Test?

The Cleveland Clinic website states: “An imaging test called a DEXA scan quantifies bone density (strength). Results from a DEXA scan can give you valuable information about your propensity for osteoporosis (bone loss) and fractures (bone breaks). Your body composition, including your body fat and muscle mass, can also be determined by this test.”
