Yuvraj Singh makes comeback; India to bowl against New Zealand in Chennai

Chennai:

Yuvraj Singh makes his return to cricket after battling a cancerous tumor. MS Dhoni called it right as India won the toss and chose to bowl against New Zealand in the second T20 international in Chennai on Tuesday.

Scorecard

And more good news from ground zero -- despite of a possible rain forecast even till 24 hours ago, it looks good at the moment. There are no covers on the ground at the MA Chidambaram Stadium as it holds its first ever Twenty20 international game.

Yuvraj Singh was the first to get off the team bus and looked focussed for a comeback into big-league cricket. Harbhajan Singh, who is also making comeback to the team since the England series last year, is not playing in t his match.

After the first match got washed out in Visakhapatnam on Saturday, this is the only chance for both teams to some T20 cricket before the World T20 in Sri Lanka.

Virender Sehwag is not playing as he is nursing an injury. Ashok Dinda and Piyush Chawla, both part of India's team for World T20, aren't playing either.


India squad:

G Gambhir, V Kohli, SK Raina, Yuvraj Singh, RG Sharma, MK Tiwary, MS Dhoni, IK Pathan, R Ashwin, Z Khan, L Balaji

New Zealand squad:

MJ Guptill, BB McCullum, LRPL Taylor, KS Williamson, RJ Nicol, JDP Oram, DL Vettori, JEC Franklin, RM Hira, AF Milne, KD Mills
