Happy that Yuvraj Singh is back: MS DhoniZeenews Sports Bureau

Colombo: Team India captain MS Dhoni has expressed his happiness over the inclusion of Yuvraj Singh in the Indian team.

When asked whether Yuvraj’s selection in the team was based on merit or it was an emotion-driven decision, Dhoni ducked under it saying it is better to ask the question to selectors.

“It’s a selection matter. It should be asked to the selectors,” Dhoni said while speaking to the media after arriving in Colombo for the 2012 T20 World Cup.

Dhoni said Yuvraj is a champion player and his inclusion in the Indian team provides a balance. “Yuvraj is a champion player. I am happy to have him back in the team.”

“He gives balance to the team. He can bowl which is an advantage. We don’t have a genuine allrounder and so the part-timers form a crucial part of our strategies.”

The cricket teams of India and New Zealand had left for Colombo this morning to compete in the World Twenty20 championship, starting from September 18.

New Zealand won the two-match T20 series against India after beating the hosts in thrilling encounter at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here last night.

The first T20 match between the two sides at Visakhapatnam last week was washed away.

India will open its World T20 campaign on September 19 against Afghanistan while New Zealand will play their first match two days later against Bangladesh.

The summit clash of the tournament is slated for October 7 in Colombo.
