Things won’t be that easy for flamboyant Yuvraj

He has scripted many an escape for India on the field and in real life too, he is an example of triumph of dogged determination; a victory over cynicism; a tale of grime, guts and glory. Yuvraj Singh is a hero not only on the field but on personal front as well. And the good news is that the hero of the 2011 World Cup has not only recovered from a deadly disease, he is back on the field and has been named in the probables’ list for the T20 World Cup to be played be in Sri Lanka in September.

However things won’t be that easy for this flamboyant batsman. He has been out of the team from quite a long time and apart from his health, there will also be some other factors which will decide his involvement with the team.

Yuvraj has been one of the most prolific athletes of the Indian Team for a long time and after his illness, can he maintain same kind of energy level on the field?  Returning to international action requires lot more than practicing in the nets and he will know it better than others being in the game for more than a decade.

Making a comeback in the T20 squad will not be an easy task for him because in his absence, some players have become a permanent fixture in the team. And as always IPL performance will be taken into account and unfortunately Yuvraj missed that tournament as well. So finding a place in the team could be a real problem for him.

Like on occasions when players are dropped due to their performance they still continue to play domestic cricket, but for Yuvraj he has been out of cricket completely. He is a proven customer for the team and does deserve a chance to play, but then in his absence some young players have done really well and ignoring their performance will be difficult for the team management.

The path seems to be a tough but not an impossible one. The man who won India the World Cup, has been through difficult times in the past as well and he has emerged as a true champion. The whole world wants to see this man back on the cricket field because that is where he belongs and one thing is for sure that Yuvraj will not leave any stone unturned to make his comeback.
