Yuvraj Singh, the man who famously hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over against England in the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup, will be keen to lift the Indian team out of its current woes when the ICC world Twenty20 tournament starts in Bangladesh from March 16. Although Yuvraj found himself out of the one-day side following India's tour of South Africa last year, the selectors have shown faith in him for the T20 format. Former chairman of selection committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Kiran More is hailing Yuvraj as a match-winner.

"From the day he started playing for India, he has been a match-winner and I am sure it will continue to be that way till he plays competitive cricket. He's gone through a lot in recent times but there's still a lot of cricket left in him," More told the Times of India.

From the days when he became a regular in the Indian team, when he lifted Sachin Tendulkar after India won the first Test match against England in 2008 in Chennai, to when he was declared the man of the tournament in the 2011 World Cup which India won, and recently when he fought a bitter battle with lung cancer, Yuvraj has come a long way.
