RCB’s Domestic Players to Undergo Yo-Yo Test Ahead of IPL 2019

Royal Challengers Bengaluru have kickstarted their five-day conditioning camp primarily with eight of its domestic players including 16-year-old Bengal prodigy Prayas Ray Burman and Ranji Trophy's top run-getter Milind Kumar.

Eight players have already joined the camp which also includes Uttar Pradesh captain Akshdeep Nath, Mumbai all-rounder Shivam Dube, talented Delhi batsman Himmat Singh and seamer Kulwant Khejroliya, Tamil Nadu's Washington Sundar and Devdutt Paddikal from Karnataka.

The two coaches Gary Kirsten and Ashish Nehra will be monitoring the progress of the players and a Yo-Yo test will also be conducted to get a hang of their fitness.

Royal Challengers Bangalore had retained a vast majority of the team’s core, and bought a total of nine players at the 2019 auction, that was held in Jaipur on 18 December last year.

Uncapped Dube was their biggest buy at Rs 5 crore – a whopping 2500% value hike on his Rs 20 lakh base price. West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmyer (Rs 4.2 crore) and South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen (Rs 50 lakh) were the two foreign players that they added to their squad this year.
