Sunil Gavaskar batted for Yuvraj Singh’s return in India’s limited over team 

Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar felt that that 33-year-old left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh shouldn’t be ignored by the Indian selectors just because of his age and the Punjab lad would be a vital cog in the Indian team to restore their fortune in the series against South Africa for his ability to bat and bowl more than handy left-arm spin.

Gavaskar said, “Yuvraj’s bowling and batting will help India. When he is in the form he can bowl few overs and can give the batting line up a little bit of depth it needs. He scored 187 against Gujarat at Mohali, so selectors should not overlook him. As a bowler he can concede more runs, but will score more runs than Axar Patel do. And he will be very good in the field as he is still the top class fielder in the world. India needs horses for courses because they need to win the series to get itself confident before the Test series”.

While talking to NDTV Gavaskar also said, India should give Shikhar Dhawan rest  as the opener looked tired and sluggish and promote Rahane as an opener. He also said Suresh Raina has been out of form and the Indians have lost two ODI’s against South Africa after they failed to finish off the chase in the slog overs.

However, at the end of the show he praised Yuvraj Singh once again and urged selectors to pick Yuvraj in the team.
