Mumbai: Yuvraj Singh could not contain his joy after he on Friday was picked in the Indian side for the ODI and T20 series against England. The southpaw, who last played an ODI in December 2013, was back in the Indian squad as Virat Kohli took over from Mahendra Singh Dhoni as India’s ODI and T20 skipper.
The star Indian cricketer and a hero of India’s World Cup-winning campaign though had to delete a tweet after the news of his comeback broke.
Yuvraj, although 35, had a solid Ranji Trophy season wherein he scored 672 runs from 5 matches for Punjab. He did not take any part in the remainder of the season as he got married with Hazel Keech. However, the selectors were impressed with Yuvraj’s form and picked him for the England series.
With India only playing three ODIs before the Champions Trophy in, Yuvraj will have to all his chances count as he dons Indian colours one more time....
