It is really heartening news for the fans of Yuvraj Singh, who was not included in the World Cup squad. He will be playing in a T-20 match representing the prestigious MCC in Dubai on 20th March 2015. It is worthwhile to mention that despite a good show in the Ranji Trophy this season, Yuvraj was not considered even among the 30 probables. The event is called the Emirates Twenty20 which is a four-team T20 tournament played annually in Dubai. This features a Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) XI and, typically, three English County Cricket sides.

The tournament usually brings in a few typically big-name players on the MCC team and at least a handful of other notable cricketers from the English county league. This is gaining popularity being just a one day affair, though the tariff appears reasonable. So on Friday, March 20. Yorkshire will play Lancashire in the opening fixture at 10am before the MCC Xi take on Sussex at 1pm. The final will be played on same day at 5pm.
