And all these players who are playing should have been more fit!! When are they going to conduct management fitness test for BCB?
I question the metrics by which it was measured. Both Taskin and Mash were looking as ripped as an NBA point guard during India series. Fitness must have been based on how many overs one can bowl on the trot. If you went by bench press reps, lean body mass, % body fat Taskin and Mash would rank at the top. Its like saying Sehwag is fitter than Umesh Yadav.

Incomplete tests. Either some missed and doing it another time or some events go on the next day. That is the impression I got from the link.

Salaam Asaad, you know the word "farm-strong" or "corn-fed" or "ox-strong"?

WSWRWB. Can't read bangla so no clue what was in the article. I have not heard those terms but I'm guessing it means naturally strong. Its true strength can't necessarily be gauged on appearance. I'm just going on appearance since Shakib himself admitted he doesn't like training, its hard to believe he'd top the fitness charta. Perhaps he's been busting his butt to get back into the side???

It says what the test was right there on the article. IDK what you guys are looking at. "The fitness drills are expected to be completed today with the vertical jump, drop jump and 30-metre sprint and the beep Test." Those are pretty much the basic components of a fitness test. Lots of stamina and agility testing. Bench press, pull ups and etc are strength test, not fitness test.

And just because someone's ripped doesn't necessarily mean they're fit and vice-versa. I feel like I already had this talk here before. IDK if anyone's here has been watching MLB playoffs but if you guys check out Giants' 3rd baseman, you'll see what I'm mean. There's a reason why they call him the Panda. You gotta be super fit to play that position. And he's a super-fat, overweight unhealthy looking dude. But he made some sick plays last couple of series. My uncle is about the same size and he will never be able to move like that. Of course he'd be lot better if he was lean... yup I defo had this talk before. I even used the same player as an example.

Iceman not only has 5 wicket hauls against every Test team he has played against but he has also entered the top 50 list of bowlers with the most five-wicket-hauls in history (!!!) - http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/con...ds/283354.html

Now, if he ends up getting a 10-fer tomorrow, then he'll go back out of the list but at this very moment he is ahead of Mitchell Johnson, Stuart MacGill and Chaminda Vaas!
