The match is very important one as Yuvraj Singh is making a comeback into Team India after a long time. Earlier, Yuvraj was expected to make a comeback in the 1st Twenty20 match but that was washed out due to rain at Visakhapatnam last Saturday.
The middle-order batsman from team India, Yuvraj returned after his successful treatment of cancer and his fans are now waiting their star to perform once again.
Talking to media, Yuvraj said, “We need to get some games in before the World Twenty20.”
