(Kajal Singh intern journalist): Kaif praised Kohli’s fitness and said that Kohli has taken Team India to a different level. But he also said that the entire team will have to perform together only then the team will be able to win the ICC tournament.
Ever since Virat Kohli took charge of Team India, his first job for cricketers is to focus on his fitness and pass the Yo-Yo test every time. Some cricketers have already left the team, the reason behind which is their failure in the fitness tests. Ambati Rayudu was dropped from Team India before the 2018 England tour because he could not pass the yo-yo test.
There have also been many controversies in Team India due to the Yo-Yo test. Former player Yuvraj Singh has even said that despite passing the yo-yo test, he was dropped from the team.
However, if we talk about the year 2000, then fitness was also necessary for Team India. In such a situation, Mohammad Kaif said that if this test happened during that time, then only these two players of the team, including me, could pass this test.
He named Yuvraj and Balaji and said that only three of us could pass the Yo-Yo test. Kaif also said that his fitness has always been important for a cricketer.
Kaif praised Kohli and said that Kohli has taken Team India to a different level. But he also said that the entire team will have to perform together only then the team will be able to win the ICC tournament. After the year 2014 to date, if Team India could not win a single ICC Trophy, then it has not reached the final either.
