Former India opener Virender Sehwag, while commentating during the second ODI between India and England, lavished praise on the comeback man Yuvraj Singh as he said:
“I never thought that there would be a day when I would be commentating on a game where Yuvraj Singh is playing. I had a feeling that Yuvraj Singh and I would retire at the same time but it’s a great feeling that Yuvi has made a comeback to the India team,” said Virender Sehwag.

Yuvraj Singh made his international debut in 2000 whereas Virender Sehwag came into the international frame in 1999. Both of them played oodles of matches for India together but it was Sehwag, who went on to seal a permanent place in Test cricket, whereas Yuvraj struggled to get going in the longest format of the game.
Post the World Cup win in 2011, Indian cricket saw biggest changes in the squad with many senior players being dropped after a poor show on the tour of England. Both Yuvraj and Sehwag were many of those to be dropped. Sehwag, after realising that his time was over, retired in 2015. Yuvraj though continued to fight for his place. His hard work paid off when he was recalled to the ODI squad after a gap of three years.
Yuvraj Singh surely is in last phase his career and just like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Champions trophy will decide the future of the all-rounder.
