Chennai:

Yuvraj Singh will miss his second straight game in the ongoing Indian Premier League, with his Pune Warriors teammate Ross Taylor confirming that the injured all-rounder will not be part of the playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday.

Yuvraj missed out on Pune's win over two-time winners Chennai Super Kings on Monday night due to injury.

"I am not sure right now. He is not going to be playing in the next game but hopefully he is ready for the game after that," Taylor said after his side's win.

Standing in for regular skipper Angelo Mathews who is not entitled to play in Chennai due to a ban on Sri Lankan players, Taylor led Pune to a comfortable win over Chennai, despite missing a player of Yuvraj's class.

"Obviously, Yuvraj is a big part of our team and it affects the balance of our team when Yuvi doesn't play. He is a world-class player and hopefully he can come back as soon as possible," Taylor said of his teammate in the Pune franchise.
