Virat Kohli took to Instagram to share his Yo-Yo test score on Thursday. The Indian batter is widely considered one of the fittest players of his generation, scoring 17.2 in the fitness test, well above the reported acceptable mark of 16.5. Kohli achieved a score of 19 when the yo-yo test was a mandatory feature to play for the Indian men's cricket team during Kohli's captaincy. Fans were thrilled to see Kohli acing his fitness tests at the age of 34, but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) bosses were not entirely happy seeing the player post a piece of confidential information on social media.

BCCI isn't happy with Virat Kohli's Instagram post

"The happiness of finishing the Yo-Yo test between the dreaded cones. 17.2 done," Kohli posted on Instagram via a story. The BCCI sent a verbal reminder to all the players, including Kohli, that sharing such information on social media shouldn't be taking place.

"Players have been informed verbally to avoid posting any confidential matter on social media platforms. They can post pictures while training but posting a score leads to breach of contract clause" a BCCI official said to Indian Express.

The Asia Cup 2023 squad went through a special program in a training camp in Bengaluru. Most of the players joined a few days ago. Some players who were busy with the Ireland T20I series will join on August 25. The Asia Cup campaign will begin on August 30. The Indian team will play their first match of the tournament on September 02 against arch-rivals Pakistan.

BCCI developed the program considering the upcoming ODI World Cup. The board wants all of its players, considered for selection in the showpiece event. They want the players to remain fully fit to give the team the best chance of winning the title. It might end the long and disappointing ICC trophy drought.
