Visakhapatnam: Amid the hype surrounding Yuvraj Singh's return after conquering cancer, pacer Laxmipathy Balaji would make a quiet comeback to the Indian cricket team, more than three-and-a-half years after his last international outing.
"It's nice to be back. But at the same time, it's not that I'm going to make my debut. Yes, I didn't play for India for a long time but cricket always stayed with me," Balaji said today ahead of the first Twenty20 international against New Zealand here on Saturday.
The Tamil Nadu-seamer was written off after a career-threatening knee injury.
