He said that Yuvraj is fit to play tomorrow's crucial game.

On Monday, Yuvraj had participated in the Indian team's training session as he was seen playing soccer and also did a bit of stretching exercises with his teammates.

Yuvraj's fans are equally excited to see him playing in front of his homecrowd once again. Yuvraj, who had emerged as the player of the tournament in the 2011 World Cup, had last played the Cup's semi-final in Mohali against Pakistan, where he failed with the bat.

The left-hander's fans would be keen to see him in action as the illness had kept him out for long. Yuvraj has featured in 280 ODIs with over 8,000 runs that includes 13 centuries.
