    One guy who I feel sorry for and could be better then Umesh was Aaron, he hasn't got selectors backng ,has pace , skills and could be India's fastest yet.

    Tait had the ability n natural speed, I often look at speed a bowler bowls with his first delivery of the day, last spell, he could touch 150 at will,his problem was control ,pace wise I think he was as fast as Lee, Akhtar, one guy who could be express per reports is Patrick Patterson but those were days with no speed guns, but batters have vouched for his being express.

    Aaron never played long enough, Umesh is fast but not in the express bracket, I think same about Srinath who was fast but not express. I would label a bowler express if he can bowl in test spells at 145 to 156 kph, more then a few times, only guys I count as express are Thommo, Lee, Akhtar, Tait, M Zahid could have been in that category probably.

    It is surprising when people cannot see the difference in bending arm n Hyper extension which is arm bending past the straight position in the other direction, like Akhtars

    Yes it seems stupid, have to look at it from batting teams perspective

    Home > Fitness Testing > Tests > Aerobic Endurance > Yo-Yo Endurance Yo-Yo Endurance Test The Yo-Yo Endurance Test (continuous) is a variation of the beep test, part of the yo-yo test series developed by the Danish soccer physiologist Jens Bangsbo. There are two versions of this test: Level 1 & 2 (a beginners and advanced level). The level one test is effectively the same as the standard beep test. The Level 2 test starts at a higher running speed and has different increments in speed (see Yo-Yo Endurance Test Levels). There is also an intermittent version of the Yo-Yo test, which incorporates a recovery period after each 40m (2x20m) run. purpose: The test evaluates an individual's aerobic endurance fitness. equipment required: Flat, non-slip surface, marking cones, measuring tape, pre-recorded audio cd or mp3 (buy or use the Team BeepTest software), cd player, recording sheets. procedure: Use cones to mark out two lines 20 meters apart as per the diagram. The subjects start with their foot behind one of the lines, and begin running when instructed. They continue running between the two lines, turning when signaled by the recorded beeps. After each minute or so, the pace gets quicker. If the line is not reached in time the subject must run to the line turn and try to catch up with the pace within 2 more ‘beeps’. The test is stopped if the subject fails to catch up with the pace within the two ends. variations: There are two versions of this test: Level 1 & 2. The level one test is effectively the same as the standard beep test. The Level 2 test starts at a higher running speed and has different increments in speed. See Yo-Yo Endurance Test levels. See also about Beep Test variations. scoring: The athlete's score is the total distance covered before they were unable to keep up with the recording. The Yo-Yo intermittent test usually takes between 6-20 minutes for level 1 and between 2-10 minutes for level 2. See some Yo Yo Test Results. target population: This test is suitable for sports teams and school groups, but not for populations in which a maximal exercise test would be contraindicated. It is commonly performed by soccer players. reliability: Reliability would depend on how strictly the test is run, and the previous practice allowed for the subjects. advantages: Large groups can perform this test all at once for minimal costs. disadvantages: Practice and motivation levels can influence the score attained, and the scoring of when a person is out of the test can be subjective. As the test is usually conducted outside, the environmental conditions can also affect the results. The test cd must be purchased. other considerations: This test is a maximal test, which requires a reasonable level of fitness. It is not recommended for recreational athletes or people with health problems, injuries or low fitness levels. You may not have power where you want to conduct this test. If so, you need to ensure that the batteries of the audio player are fully charged. comments: This test was developed by the Danish soccer physiologist Jens Bangsbo and his colleagues. references: Original description of the test: Fitness Training in Football, a scientific approach - by Jens Bangsbo, publisher August Krogh Institute - Copenhagen University (December 1994).

(2003) The Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test: Physiological Response, Reliability, and Validity. Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. 35(4), 697-705. This study found that the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test "had a high reproducibility and sensitivity, allowing for detailed analysis of the physical capacity of athletes in intermittent sports. Specifically, the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery test was a valid measure of fitness performance in soccer. During the test, the aerobic loading approached maximal values, and the anaerobic energy system was highly taxed. Additionally, the study suggests that fatigue during intense intermittent short-term exercise was unrelated to muscle CP, lactate, pH, and glycogen."

This study concluded that the "Yo-Yo IR2 test is reproducible and can be used to evaluate an athlete's ability to perform intense intermittent exercise with a high rate of aerobic and anaerobic energy turnover. Specifically, the Yo-Yo IR2 test was shown to be a sensitive tool to differentiate between intermittent exercise performance of soccer players in different seasonal periods and at different competitive levels and playing positions."

  7. Is this selection committee best India had?

    This selection committee is mediocre and doesn't have a set of objectives n direction, picking Dinda, Unadkat, and other has been mediocre pacers, guys who have performed well in A teams n other selected teams get dropped and other useless players take their place, it's like musical chairs. Selectors have not been able to bhase out and try alternatives for poor Dhoni, middle order, get t20 players and instead select poor T20 players like Dhawan, Dhoni.
  8. Talent watch

    Yes Rahul is a quickish leggie, but also gets lots of turn n flights as well, gets dip, so not a typical fastish t20 bowler, but a great package.
  9. BP 11 squad for warm up game against NZ

    Dhawal n Unadkunt embody mediocrity, wonder who is pushing for them, poor bowlers, no class, pace, just Trundlers.
  10. Yeh yo yo Kya Hain, yeh yo yo!

    If you can't complete Yo Yo test, you have two options 1 to contact Bunty Sajdeh n join his firm 2 to join Rhiti n be Dhoni chamcha Wonder how Malnourished Unadkunt can do the YO Yo?

    IBT Search What is Yo-Yo endurance test? India captain Virat Kohli has mastered it, Yuvraj a failure The Yo-Yo endurance test will surely help India in becoming a fitter side in world cricket. By: Ashim Sunam August 17, 2017 13:10 IST Embed Besides batting and bowling skills, one of the most-important pre-requisites of modern-day cricketers is fitness. With the ever growing demands of world cricket, and the rise of T20 cricket for the last couple of years, there is very little room for unfit players, and teams are taking such things very seriously. Only a few days ago, chief selector of India, MSK Prasad had also stressed on the importance of fitness for the Indian players. It was also revealed recently that Yuvraj Singh was left out of the ODI squad for Sri Lanka as he failed his fitness test, known as 'Yo-Yo' endurance test. The process is said to be software-based. What does this 'Yo-Yo' endurance test exactly mean? It does not involve any cricket balls or bat, but it is a sheer test of a player's fitness, where an object, primarily cones, are placed on the field, consisting of two lines normally 20m apart. The cricketer has to run along the two set lines as soon as he is instructed. He will have to return after he hears a beep. RELATED REVEALED: Why Yuvraj Singh was dropped from India squad for Sri Lanka series This Sri Lanka ODI squad will look to stop Virat Kohli and India's dominance That may not sound too tough in the initial phase, but that is just the start of the endurance test as the pace picks up after a few minutes, making it more difficult. But, there is no holding back for the player, who has to get in terms with it, and double his pace too as the test moves ahead. In case, the player fails to catch up with the pace of the test, he needs to somehow gather extra pace and catch within the next two beeps. If the players fails to catch up with pace in the next two ends, the test also comes to an end, reported Press Trust of India. It is this test, which is being used by the India cricket team. India captain Virat Kohli seems to be the best in this field as well, as his Yo-Yo score reads 21 while the pass mark is 19.5 and above. Yuvraj was way below the mark, with Yo-Yo score of 16 only. Surely, this has to be a positive step for India cricket. Gone are the days when fitness was never an issue for a player if one had the skills to bat and bowl. Such fitness levels will only help in India becoming a strong fielding side with agile and superbly fit players in the team.

    Can Kamlesh Nagarkotti be our first express bowler, seems to have a good action, quick arm rotation, nice snap of wrist, could he be our answer to Steyn?
  18. Talent watch

    Yes I was excited also about Suyal and Warrior as well, let's hope they're not wasted
  19. Talent watch

    The one positive we have these days is a lot of exposure, even with not foresight n being idiots the selectors are forced to show some initiative these days compared to say 30 years back when it was far worse. With IPL, A tours, n Virat and Dravid involved there is better chance at least that some talent will be pushed.
  20. Great one day player a poor captain and poorer test bat.
  21. Dhoni stands among others in the Pantyhose of Sreeni mama, he should be kicked and collect his retirement from his Mai Baap CSK.
  22. Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    Dhoni could be the best ODi keeper BATSMEN we had, and top ODi batter that's it. My list of greatest Indian cricketers he will not figure in certainly. Gavaskar Kapil Sachin Virat Sehwag Kohli.
  23. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    I think he is a class bat and can perform anywhere, he has temperament and technique, this exposure will help him , one thing he needs to avoid is getting into a shell, and inward movement he needs to cover better.
  24. We are blessed

    Agree, they should get some young blood in, especially shorter formats, also doesn't make sense have Dhoni, and other older players , and guys like Dhawan who r mediocre t20 players in the squad, we have the best T20 league in the world but we don't tap it's talent in that format more often.
  25. Talent watch

    He needs to be nurtured and is lucky he has Kohli as captain and not a defensive Dhoni, with maturity and age he hopefully will get stronger and get more revs and along with it more dip and ,spin, bounce and speed.
