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.
Since the inception of this new policy, every experienced, as well as a young player, are trying their level best for clearing this test and gaining match fitness.
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).
Raina broke this news to his fans from a tweet listed below:
Cleared my Yo-Yo & fitness test today, after days of hard work at #NCA!
Received tremendous support from all the trainers, coaches & officials.
Thank you all! 👍

Here’s hoping that Raina now gets back into some batting form as well and then into the Indian middle order which is at the moment very fragile and requires an experienced talented batsman.
