Yuvraj Singh’s great friend Zaheer Khan may have recently retired, but the left-hander on Sunday showed why he won’t be joining the pacer on the sidelines anytime soon.
The Punjab skipper rolled back the clock against Gujarat in the Ranji Trophy, as he played a superlative knock of 187 runs.
Yuvi hit 14 fours and 7 sixes in his 233-ball innings with a strike rate of 80.26.
The veteran’s knock powered Punjab to a massive first innings total of 608.
The 33-year-old has been performing consistently in the domestic circuit, but has not been recalled to the national side.
Among the discarded 2011 World Cup winners, only Harbhajan Singh has managed to impress the selectors of late.
Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir too have not been among the names that have found a mention in selection meetings for the last couple of series.
With Yuvraj still fighting for a place in the Indian side, it remains to be seen whether Team India management will give him another chance.
