Selectors want Yuvi back in the team for World T20


New Delhi: Indian national team selectors want star Indian all rounder Yuvraj Singh who is back at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore after recuperating from a rare germ cell cancer to be back in the side for the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

Selection committee chairman Kris Srikkanth said that there is still a month left for the selection and he wants to see the southpaw back in action.

"Yuvraj has started practice, which is a very good thing. We are all hoping that the guy who won us the World Cup should come back. We want Yuvraj back for T20 World Cup," Srikkanth said after the selectors picked the Indian team for Sri Lanka's July-August tour.

Yuvraj who recently started practicing, is undergoing a rehabilitation at the NCA and has himself expressed his desire to make a comeback at the T20 extravaganza in Island nation.

The all rounder had a wonderful inaugural T20 and he attained the distinction of being the first player to hit six sixes off an over in an international match. Yuvraj also was adjudged as the player of the 2011 World Cup.

This squad for tournament which starts on September 18th is due to be selected later this month.
