India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, who figured in Tamil Nadu's Ranji Trophy opener against Andhra Pradesh here recently, cleared the Yo-Yo fitness test at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru on Tuesday.
The off-spinner wrote on his Twitter feed that he had got through the test, which is now a must to play for India.
"Been a good trip to Bangalore, yo yo test done and dusted. Now #backtothegrind #RanjiTrophy2017 #teamtamilnadu," Ashwin wrote.
The lanky Tamil Nadu cricketer, who recently had a stint with English county Worcestershire, headed to Bengaluru for the Yo-Yo test after taking part in the state team's Ranji opener at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
He had said earlier that he was ready for the Yo-Yo test. "I am a man for systems and any system put in place, I would strive my level best to try and match up to it. Every leader has his own vision of how to bring the team about. This is the vision of the current leadership group and its important to respect it," Ashwin had said.
