Rohit Sharma has managed to clear the Yo-Yo test at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and can now take his place in the squad that will tour Ireland and England. The 31-year-old posted a photo after clearing the test and wrote, “Yo-Yo ✔️ See you shortly Ireland.”


According to PTI, Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane had been kept on stand by for Sharma, in case he failed to clear the test. The entire limited overs squad, except those involved in the Test match against Afghanistan had undergone taken the test earlier but Sharma had requested an exemption as he was in Russia for a sponsor commitment.
