Grant Flower stresses on fitness criteria

The World Cup is right around the corner as Pakistan is gearing up to send its best squad into the mega event. Although most of the spots in the team have been settled, there still lingers a cloud of doubt over a few vacant positions.

While on-field skills and abilities are surely ranked high among the priorities, the necessity to exhibit top standards of fitness is described as equally important by the coaching staff. This point was reiterated by batting coach Grant Flower, who echoed Mickey Arthur’s narrative of maintaining good fitness as a factor of selection in the World Cup squad.

“All Cricket World Cup 2019 probables are given the message that 17.4 will be the passing points in the YoYo test,” Flower spoke in a recent interview. The passing threshold for the YoYo test is hence significant for the players.
