Yuvraj looked in good touch as he stroked the ball freely right from the start and these are clearly ominous signs for his opponents that he is getting back in the groove.
Yuvraj was his jovial self and told reporters,"I didn't think that I would last so long." He went on to say,"The ground has been lucky for me as I have played five matches here and made four centuries." He even added a touch of humour saying,"The next tournament should be in Hyderabad only."
Yuvi's mother Shabnam Singh speaking exclusively to NDTV said,"Even today Yuvi's ultimate dream is to make a Test hundred. He still feels that he should have made at least 15 Test hundreds till now."
The innings lasted 241 balls and included 33 fours along with 3 sixes which was entertainment at its best. Its the first step of many for Team India's middle order specialist as he looks to carve his way back into the national side after having won an even bigger battle with cancer.
