Sunil Gavaskar backs Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag to make India comeback

Sunil Gavaskar feels out-of-form and out-of-favour batsmen Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag can still make a comeback to the national team and that it is all about one good season and a couple of big knocks.

Once regarded as the lethal force behind India's aggressive batting line-up, Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag have been unable to impress selectors off late. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar though feels it is only a matter of a few big knocks in the domestic circuit before the duo makes a comeback to Team India.

While Yuvraj Singh has scored just one fifty in his last 10 ODI appearances (30, 3, 0, 7, 0, 0, 12, 16*, 28, 55), Sehwag has failed miserably in Ranji Trophy. Gavaskar though believes cricket is a game of limitless possibilities.

"(In) cricket, nothing is impossible," he was quoted as saying by media reports. "You have one good season, one outstanding season, you can come back. It is up to Yuvraj to show that he has got the burning desire for it. I think he has. And he has just had a bad season. Hopefully he could come back because he adds so much to the Indian team, because he is still a top fielder and his spin does help pick wickets," said Gavaskar on a sports channel.
