Cash rich Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is knocking at the door and all the 10 franchises have left no stones unturned for the two-month long cricketing extravaganza.

However, Delhi Capitals received a big setback as their aggressive batsman Prithvi Shaw failed to clear the mandatory fitness Yo-Yo test conducted in Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy (NCA). The 22-year cricketer failed to clear the cut-off of 16.5 score. Soon after, he took to Instagram and posted a story urging fans not to judge him when people are not aware of his situation. The post has reportedly gone viral and the fans are relishing it.

“PIzz Don’t Judge Me, When You Don’t Know My Situation, U Are Creating Your Own Karma…,” Prithvi posted on his Instagram story.

As per a source, despite failing the Yo-Yo test it doesn’t stop Prithvi from participating in the IPL. It’s just that the fitness parameter of the flamboyant batsman is not up to the mark and not the be all and end all. Before taking the test Shaw has featured in three back to back Ranji games. The fatigue might have affected his Yo-Yo score.
