Dhaka: India received a boost ahead of Friday's ICC World Twenty20 semi-final against South Africa when Yuvraj Singh was declared fit following an ankle injury, an official said. The flamboyant cancer survivor hurt his left ankle while playing football with team-mates on Wednesday, but the Indian squad's media manager R.N. Baba said there was no cause for worry.
"Yuvraj is fit. He will attend practice," Baba told reporters at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka.
The 32-year-old overcame a lean trot to smash an attractive 60 off 43 balls, containing four sixes and five fours, against Australia on Sunday. (Preview)
