    Absurd that he is been brought back.

    Produced one of the worst limited overs innings ever in the world cup final last year and has been very meh in the IPL over last few years.

    I love the dude and would be happy for him to be proven wrong, but think its a horror call.[/QUOTE]

    Has gunned it in the IPL to be fair recently, he deserves a look before the world cup.

    Yeah, I'd rather Yusuf Pathan than Yuvraj at this point. He's past it and that innings against SL was ATG bad.

    Yuvraj has domestic OD form behind him though.

    Cricket Records | Vijay Hazare Trophy, 2015/16 | Records | Most runs | ESPN Cricinfo

    Considering all the names above him are top-order batsmen and don't have much international experience, I can see why the selectors would like to give Yuvi another crack.

    Didn't bowl that well though - 28 overs for 138 runs and no wickets.

    I think Yuvraj Singh more than any other player I have witnessed was guilty of reading his own press.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Yeah he had a good Vijay Hazare Trophy but whatever I saw last year didn't fill me up with confidence. Let's see how he does.

    If you had asked me after that world t20 final whether yuvi would play for India again I'd have said no way. This is surprising and quite funny

    Selectors could have picked Shreyas Iyer instead of not so young Yuvraj..

    I think people are failing to realize that the Indian batting order is too one-dimensional. It's filled with batsmen who are quality but require certain batting positions and situations in order for them to maximize their ability. Yuvraj might not be the best pick, but he certainly isn't the worst pick either. Let's not forget that Dhawan hasn't done **** in T20's so far, Rohit Sharma and Rahane have also really only clicked in the IPL, Dhoni needs to bat up the order to be useful, so no one can really complain about getting dropped/not being picked, apart from Raina perhaps, which is ironic.

    In any case he's come back on merit and not nostalgia, so really can't have any complaints imo.

    Any bloke who hits Stuart Broad for 36 in an over must by definition be good enough to have a place for as long as he wants it
