New Delhi:

Shown the door for slump in form and criticised for poor fitness, Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday said he would come back stronger to answer his detractors with some of his trademark explosive batting.

The left-handed swashbuckler was dropped from the Indian team for the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka after a string of poor performances, including the Twenty20 World Cup debacle.

His fitness was also criticised after the T20 World Cup and Yuvraj said he has been sweating it out at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore to get back in shape.

"It has been tough for me but I am working on my body.

"I have been working on my fitness for the past 15 days.

"There were injuries in the past one year and they took time to settle down," Yuvraj said.

"It has been a tough year but things are getting better now.

I would be back with the best of my form and fitness. The bat should always do the talking," he added.

Out of favour he might be with the selectors but Yuvraj has got the backing of his teammates with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and senior players like Virender Sehwag throwing their weight behind him.

"It's nice to see the support of the boys. It just shows the camaraderie in the team. I am doing my best to come back," he said.

"As a young kid you always dream of playing for India. That (India) logo on your head is what it is all about. I will also forever cherish that logo," he said.
