India’s captain was reacting to Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Tewatia failing their fitness tests

Fitness cannot be “compromised”. That is the firm message India captain Virat Kohli has sent to the players who recently failed to clear to the fitness tests put in place by BCCI to be eligible for selection to the national team.

Two uncapped spinners – mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy and leggie Rahul Tewatia – failed to clear one of the two norms that comprise the fitness test: either matching the 17:1 mark in the yo-yo test or running a two-kilometre time trial in 8 minutes and 15 seconds (for a fast bowler) or 8 minutes 30 seconds (for the rest).
