Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh is in sensational form in the Ranji Trophy as he is piling up runs to ensure the selectors that he is fine form and is up to the task if called upon to play for India. The 34-year old has been out of the team after suffering an ankle injury in the middle of T20 World Cup which saw him not picked out after that.
However, Yuvi is making a strong claim for his place in the limited-overs formats as he is on a roll in the Ranji Trophy. Having played a match winning innings on two occasions against Madhya Pradesh where he scored a 177, 76 on a tricky wicket where other batsmen clearly struggled, the southpaw has backed it with an unbeaten 179 at the end of Day 3 in their Ranji Trophy clash against Baroda.
The biggest match winner for India in ODIs have now piled up over 500 runs in this year’s Ranji trophy and is currently the third highest run scorer in the biggest domestic tournament of India. If the southpaw can continue his innings and get past double century tomorrow, he has a very chance of becoming the highest scorer in the tournament after the current round of fixtures.
With Team India’s middle order lacking experience, Yuvraj Singh could be thrown into the mix as his experience could prove vital for Team India as Men in Blue are lacking the killer instinct in the batting due to poor middle order performances off late. The southpaw is clearly the favourite to claim a place in the national side with his performances as he looks to have finally found his lost touch.
