Sachin hand in Yuvi ‘rebirth’

Sachin Tendulkar, one understands, convinced Yuvraj Singh not to quit when the dashing left-hander had been low on confidence earlier this season.

“The selectors had made him feel so unwanted... Plus, there was the fitness issue... Injury, illness... Yuvraj seemed to get everything... He spoke to a few people, most notably Sachin, who advised him not to give in so easily,” a well-placed source told The Telegraph on Sunday.

Just as well that Yuvraj didn’t quit, or India probably wouldn’t have made the World Cup semi-final.

Yuvraj was dropped from the Asia Cup squad last June and, then, omitted from the Test line-up after the July-August series in Sri Lanka. Now, it’s certain that an excellent run in the World Cup will earn him a Test recall.

After all, if some can be rewarded for T20 performances, why not the seasoned Yuvraj for everything he has been doing in the 50-over game?
