Yuvraj heroics could earn India Test return

November 19, 2008

Yuvraj Singh's match-winning hundreds in the first two one-dayers versus England could finally cement his Test berth.

The 26-year-old left-hander slammed the second fastest ODI hundred by an Indian while scoring 138 not out in the first game against England.

He then put on an assured, all-round display with 118 and also took four for 28 bowling slow left-arm spin in the next to put India 2-0 up in the seven-match series.

  • India's Test selectors could now reward Yuvraj by recalling him to the middle-order slot vacated after former skipper Sourav Ganguly retired at the end of the 2-0 home series win over Australia earlier this month.

    In the first game in Rajkot, Yuvraj displayed the brutal power he did on his teenage debut eight years ago when he hit a match-winning 84 against Australia in his first one-dayer. In the second England game on Monday, he showed he could also curb his natural instinct, rescuing India from 29 for three.
