Just a few weeks back, many of the former Indian captains from Sunil Gavaskar, Saurav Ganguly to Rahul Dravid and many others had chosen their squad for the next cricket World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand from 14th of next month. However, majority of these former captains had not chosen Yuvraj Singh in their squad and by and large all of these former great captains were critsised heavily for not including Yuvraj Singh in their list. A few of writers were even shown apprehensions that Yuvraj Singh might not be chosen during the auction for this year’s IPL.

But now the fans of Yuvraj Singh will be delighted to know that our Indian national team star for several years and 2015 World Cup cast-off, Yuvraj Singh has been included to the MCC squad for the Emirates T20 tournament in Dubai in March. Yuvraj will be playing alongside former England Test captain Alastair Cook, international batsmen Nick Compton and Michael Carberry and Nepal captain Paras Khadka among others.

The tournament, which is likely to take place on March 20, also involves county champions Yorkshire, Lancashire and Sussex.

Yuvraj had participated for the Rest of the World against the MCC in the Bicentenary match last year at MCC. He scored an exciting 132 runs. A very thrilled Yuvraj said “I am very excited about being part of the squad for this tournament, and I’d like to thank MCC for offering me the chance to play out in Dubai again.

He added “There are some great players in the squad so we stand a good chance of winning the competition.”

This is really a big morale booster for Yuvraj Singh and also for millions of his fans. Who knows this opportunity might pave way for him for many more events, including consideration by Indian team management. Have a look at the MCC squad over here:

Alastair Cook (Essex), Nick Compton (Middlesex, capt), Michael Carberry (Hampshire), James Hildreth (Somerset), Zafar Ansari (Surrey), Daryl Mitchell (Worcestershire), Sam Billings (Kent), Matt Dunn (Surrey), Chris Rushworth (Durham), Graham Onions (Durham), Adam Riley (Kent), Paras Khadka (Nepal – for T20 matches only), Yuvraj Singh (India – for T20 matches only).
