Indian selectors on Tuesday, dropped flamboyant batsman Yuvraj Singh from the squad for the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand, starting on January 19 in Napier. The ODI series will be followed by two Tests, commencing on February 6.
Yuvraj has been in scratchy form ever since he made his India comeback in the ODI series against Australia. He scored 19 runs in four innings, thrice losing his wicket to Aussie pacer Mitchell Johnson. His last ODI was at the Wanderers earlier this month where he scored a second-ball duck. Karnataka's Stuart Binny, son of former Indian all-rounder Roger Binny, will take his place in the ODI squad.
