Putting an end to speculation on his fitness, Rohit Sharma cleared the mandatory Yo-Yo test today and then fired a salvo at his critics, who questioned his exemption from the June 15 test. Last week, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni along with other UK-bound limited overs specialists had cleared the Yo-Yo Test, save Ambati Rayudu. Rohit had sought exemption from the BCCI as he had a sponsor commitment in Russia.

BCCI GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim had informed PTI that it wasn’t mandatory for him to appear on the scheduled date as he had taken permission in advance. Rohit took the test at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru and then announced on Twitter that he has cleared it. Rohit also took a dig at a section of media, that put a question mark over his fitness.
