New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh's return to Team India for the one-off T20 and the first three One-day Internationals against Australia has been welcomed by former India opener and NDTV expert Sunil Gavaskar. In an exclusive interview on Monday, Gavaskar said: "Yuvraj's inclusion will not only strengthen the team but will add variety as well."
Gavaskar praised Yuvraj's ability to brave the odds and impress the selectors with his current form. Yuvraj last played an ODI for India on January 27 against England at Dharamsala (Pics from the match) and was dropped subsequently due to a poor run of form and a lack of fitness. After undergoing a rigorous physical training camp in France, a fitter Yuvraj made a comeback to competitive cricket with a bang, scoring 123, 40 and 61 in three List A matches against the West Indies A, followed by a quick-fire 52 against the same opponent in a T20 game. He carried on with his good form in the Challenger Trophy for India Blue where he scored 84 against India Red and a 29 in the final against Delhi.
