INDvENG 2nd ODI Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj had shown glimpses of his dazzling timing in the first warm-up in Mumbai and from the second ball he had faced in the first ODI – Was he back? Hang on, he was only just beginning.

Captain Virat Kohli insisted that he wanted Yuvraj back. “We cannot leave so much burden on MS Dhoni alone in the middle order,” Kohli said when asked about Yuvraj’s selection. “I am willing to take responsibility up the order, but there needs to be one more guy with him down the order in case the top order doesn’t fire.”

Dhoni, at the other end, absorbed Woakes’ penetrative spell. But it was a flat pitch with a quick outfield. Loose deliveries would come eventually. England bowlers would have to change.

In 56 balls Yuvi reached fifty and brought up his century off 98. The grand 150 score included three sixes and 21 fours. Yuvraj Singh was declared Man of the Match.

England’s former Captain Michael Vaughan congratulated Yuvi on his superb comeback.
