New Delhi:

India's middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh has welcomed the International Cricket Council's decision to incorporate the DRS in all matches sans the Hawk-Eye.

"DRS without Hawk-Eye is absolutely fine," Yuvraj said.

However, Yuvraj is not too happy with the ICC's decision to do away with runners. "Unfortunate that injured batsmen will not get runners," he said.

"No runner means batsmen will have to get fitter," he added.

India's man of the World Cup, Yuvraj, however, has declared himself fit and raring to go. After recovering from a lung infection that kept him out of the West Indies tour, Yuvraj is looking forward to the England Test and ODI series.

Speaking exclusively to NDTV, Yuvraj said, "I am fit to tour England."

Talking about his injury, he said, "My injury came at the most inappropriate time. I would have loved to play Tests in West Indies."
