“Yo-Yo Test and Dexa Will Now Be Part Of Selection Criteria”, BCCI

The BCCI organises a review meeting of Team India over their recent performance in the T20 World Cup 2022 on January 1, 2023.

India made an impressive start by registering a victory against their arch-rival Pakistan in the thrilling final over match. Though India holds the top position in the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Group B Points Table, they failed to make an entry to the final.

India faces a 10-wicket defeat against England and once again broke millions of Indian fans’ hearts. While everyone expects Rohit Sharma‘s captaincy will bag them the ICC trophy which Indian fans expect since 2013.

Team India lifts their last ICC trophy under MS Dhoni in 2013 where he led the team to beat England in the finals of the Champions Trophy 2013.

Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of the selection criteria

Post the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final defeat, Indian head coach Rahul Dravid claims that an extensive experience of playing the Big Bash League in Australia contributed to Jos Buttler and Alex Hales’ absolute dominance over India.

Earlier a report states that BCCI is planning to introduce a new head coach for the T20I format.

The meeting has been convened just 2 days prior to the Sri Lanka series. The Sri Lankan cricket team is scheduled to tour India to play 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is between January 3 to January 15 next year.

The meeting was attended by newly appointed BCCI President Roger Binny, Jay Shah, Rohit Sharma, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Chetan Sharma. During the meeting, the issues of player availability, workload management and fitness parameters were discussed at length along with the roadmap to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.

The 13th edition of the Cricket World Cup is scheduled to be hosted by India during October and November 2023 and will be the first time the competition is held entirely in India.

The decisions that have made during the meeting has been released by the BCCI officially as “Key recommendations” which reads as follows:

  • The emerging players will have to play a substantial domestic season to be eligible for selection to the national team.
  • The Yo-Yo Test and Dexa will now be part of selection criteria and implemented in the customized roadmaps of the central pool of players.
  • Keeping in mind the Men’s FTP and preparations for ICC CWC 2023, the NCA will work in tandem with the IPL Franchisee to monitor the targeted Indian players participating in the IPL 2023.

As per a report, BCCI has shortlisted 20 players for the upcoming 2023 World Cup in India.

As of now, Hardik Pandya-led Indian T20I team will face Sri Lanka to play the first match of the series on January 3 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Following the 3-match T20I series, Rohit Sharma led Indian ODI team will play a 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.
