Later two more Indian cricketers - Mohammed Shami and Ambati Rayudu failed the yo yo test and lost their place in the Indian squad.

India coach Ravi Shastri had made it clear that in future cricketers who want to represent India will perforce have to clear the yo yo test.

"If you are fit, you can enhance your ability on the field. Anyone who thinks that this is a one-off, he can walk-off. The philosophy is simple - you pass the test, you play. You fail the test, you sail. The captain leads from the front, the selectors are on the same page, the management is on the same page and the players have responded well," Shastri had said.
