The IPL franchises have adopted the famous Yo-Yo test as a parameter to rate the fitness of the cricketers. As per <i>Indian Express</i>, four franchises have already conducted the test. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/mumbai-indians" target="_blank">Mumbai Indians (MI)</a> was the first team to conduct the test at a ground in the outskirts of Mumbai. The players were given 14.5 seconds for each level, starting with level 5. The other franchises who followed suit were <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/royal-challengers-bangalore" target="_blank">Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)</a>, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). RCB had asked players take up the test right after the auctions. <p></p> <p></p>It is understood that Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) would adopt the policy soon. <p></p> <p></p><b>A member from an IPL team stated:</b> The teams now want their players to match up to the standards adopted by international teams around the world. India now has made the yo-yo test mandatory, so it s natural to see some of the IPL teams follow suit. It s good to see where each player stands in terms of their fitness levels how much work the support staff needs to put in behind the scenes with them.
