Indias Most Distructive Batsman Yuvraj Singh comeback in T-20 International Cricket.
Yuvraj Singh is coming back into the Indian team after a gap of 21 months. However, the pressure of performing on his comeback is weighing in the back of his mind.
After 21 months, Yuvraj Singh will be back in blue jersey on the Australian tour where he has been selected for playing three T20 matches. But the left-hander is not happy as he was expecting a call for the 50-over format. He had good enough reasons too that he would come back in ODIs.
In five matches of the ongoing 2015 Vijay Hazare One-Day Trophy, Yuvraj Singh scored 341 runs at a very good average of 85.25 with three half centuries, which included two scores in the nineties. But Yuvraj was not picked in the ODI side, instead he was given chance in the Twenty20 format.
Though Yuvraj is relieved, he is still not very happy. Sources close to Yuvraj Singh say that, the pressure to perform is immense in T20 format and the pace of the format is such that it gives you no time to settle down.
Yuvraj reacted by saying: “The quality of international bowlers is much better than the domestic ones and it’s not easy to go out and hit big sixes right from the first match.”
Yuvraj’s worry is valid. Coming back in the Indian team and facing the tough Australian bowlers in their own backyard is not going to be easy. Also T20 is a format that has tremendous fan following. One cameo is good enough to make you hero and one failure can see fans baying for blood.
The final of the last World T20 final against Sri Lanka in Dhaka is still fresh in the fans’ memory, where Yuvraj Singh struggled to make 11 off 21 balls and couldn’t get his bat to ball in the slog overs. The team lost and Yuvraj was shown the door.”He needs more time to settle in the team,” said a source close to Yuvraj.
