Big boost for Suresh Raina’s comeback plans; Clears this big hurdle


In a bid to make a comeback into the national squad, southpaw Suresh Raina has been working hard on his batting as well as fitness.

After Indian skipper Virat Kohli made fitness the main priority for getting a place in Indian cricket team, it was made compulsory for every player to clear the ‘Yo-Yo’ test apart from having good form in domestic cricket in order to get a place in the squad.

Raina too has been giving his 100% in his workouts to clear the test which he failed in his previous attempts. The 31-year-old Raina today cleared the yo-yo test at the NCA after achieving the minimum benchmark for national selection (16.1).
