The players have been told that they can share pictures from their training but revealing fitness score amounts to breach of contract.

The India squad for the 2023 Asia Cup has assembled in Bengaluru as part of a preparatory camp. They’ve been advised ‘verbally’ to avoid posting anything confidential on social media platforms right after Virat Kohli shared his Yo-Yo score on Instagram on Thursday.

Kohli along with several other India stars including captain Rohit Sharma, allrounder Hardik Pandya underwent the strict fitness test on the first day of the camp.

However, Kohli revealing his score hasn’t gone down well with the top BCCI officials as it’s reportedly considered a breach of contract.

“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 was quoted as saying by The Indian Express on Friday.

Expressing his pleasure at passing the test, Kohli had shared a selfie and captioned,  “The happiness of finishing the Yo Yo test between the dreaded cones. 17.2 don.”

According to the report, the India stars who weren’t part of the Ireland T20I series were given a 13-day fitness programme designed to ensure they remain in top shape and injury free ahead of Asia Cup and ODI World Cup.

The players included Rohit, Kohli, Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj. They are said to undergo a full body test.

The Asia Cup starts from August 30 with Pakistan taking on Nepal in Multan. India will open their campaign on September 2 against Pakistan in Pallekele.
