TATA IPL 2022: Prithvi Shaw fails ‘yo-yo’ test; yet can feature in the tournament from the beginning

Delhi Capitals’ opening batter Prithvi Shaw has failed a yo-yo test ahead of the 15th season of the IPL. But it seems the opener can still be playing in the team from the start of the tournament.


Delhi Capitals’ opening batter Prithvi Shaw has been failed in the latest ‘yo-yo’ test as per reports. As less than 10 days is remaining for the Indian Premier League to start, all the teams have already started their practice as well as net sessions. Every player before the start of any tournament is it IPL or any other tournament has to do a fitness test which is also called as ‘yo-yo’ test. So, before the IPL starts, Delhi Capitals’ had to pass this test to feature in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League.

In this, Prithvi Shaw was failed and it seemed that the opening batter won’t be featuring in the tournament (IPL 2022) from the start. But as some reports suggest, Prithvi Shaw would still be able to participate in the tournament from the beginning and will be seen playing for his franchise from the start. Delhi Capitals has done some great business in this year’s IPL mega auction which was conducted in the month of February.

They bought former SRH’s opening batter David Warner for 6.25 Crore, which was a really good deal for them. As Shikhar Dhawan has gone to Punjab Kings, it is possible that David will open along with Prithvi for Delhi. Along with the opener (David Warner), they also bought Shardul Thakur who previously used to play for the defending champions CSK.
