New Delhi: Days after he wasn't included in Team India's 30-man probables list for the ICC World Cup 2015, veteran cricketer Yuvraj Singh has replied back with three consecutive centuries in the ongoing season of the Ranji Trophy.
Yuvraj, who was adjudged the Man of the Series in 2011 edition of the prestigious event which was won by India, has slammed three centuries against Haryana (130), Maharashtra (136 ) and Saurashtra (182).
While Yuvraj missed a double ton by 18 runs, his team-mate Mandeep Singh, who slammed 235, hailed the left-hander's innings on social micro-blogging site, Twitter.

Yuvraj spent 426 minutes in the middle, hitting 23 fours and two sixes.
These two added a mammoth 379-run stand for the fourth wicket as a result of which Punjab declared their innings at 659/7.
Notably, Yuvraj was one of the five senior Team India players who weren't considered for the forthcoming World Cup. Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh were the others who were shown the door by the Indian selectors.
