New Delhi: Amit Mishra, currently at the business end of an intense rehabilitation programme, is puzzled by the rumours that he has failed the yo-yo test alongside Suresh Raina and M.S. Washington Sunder.
The 34-year-old Mishra is currently recuperating from a knee injury and has been doing his rehab at the NCA. Recently, reports emerged that Mishra has flunked the now yo-yo test, which is the basic fitness parameter set by the Indian team management.
“I want to set the record straight. I never appeared for the yo-yo test. I was completely puzzled when I saw that I have failed the test. If I didn’t take the test in first place, how did I fail?” Mishra asked.
Asked how did this news crop up, Mishra said: “I was at the NCA doing my own running when a few other players were appearing for the yo-yo test. I was there at the spot, doing my own routines. May be whoever provided the information thought I was also part of that group.”
Mishra informed that he has spoken to NCA trainer Ashish Kaushik, who has clarified the matter with the national selectors. “Kaushik told me that he has informed the national selectors that I am yet to take yo-yo test.”
