Yuvraj Singh got a recall in the Indian T20 squad for the Australian tour. Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh said he cannot wait to come back in the dressing room after going through a really tough phase.

“The phase in life that I went through was really terrible and it can’t be worse. But I’ve emerged stronger,” Yuvraj said on the sidelines of a promotional programme.

“There’s always pressure to come back. Pressure is always there in International cricket. People always expect you to repeat your old performances and records,” he added.

He was a key part of the Indian team who won the World Cup 2011 where he contributed with both the bat and ball as he was named as the man of the tournament.

“I’m sure that it will come with time, with the faith I’ve from the selectors, team management and fans. I’m hopeful of getting results,” the 34-year-old said.

“I’m out of cricket for more than one and half years and it’s difficult to motivate yourself to play domestic cricket but that’s the only way forward. I’ve been doing well in domestic cricket,” the Punjab batsman said.

“I’ve been getting so many messages on social media and everybody wants me do well. I am very thankful and grateful to my fans. I hope to do well,” he signed off.

He has been selected in T20 squad keeping in mind for the T20 World Cup to held in India. His performance in the Ranji trophy 2015/16 was also impressive scoring 398 runs in seven matches.
