London: India discard Yuvraj Singh will play for Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in the Emirates Twenty20 tournament in Dubai on March 20.
The Indian batsman has been named as the final member of the squad for the annual competition which this year also features Lancashire, Yorkshire and Sussex.
Lancashire will take on Yorkshire in the first semi-final and MCC play Sussex in the afternoon, before the final takes place in the evening.
Yuvraj will join Alastair Cook, Michael Carberry and Nick Compton in the MCC squad. Nepal captain Paras Khadka will also be part of the MCC side for the Emirates T20 tournament, a release from the MCC said.
The Emirates T20 tournament precedes the Champion County match between MCC and Yorkshire. This annual fixture is a day-night match played with a pink ball under the MCC Spirit of Cricket banner, and acts as a curtain-raiser for the new English county season.
"I am very excited about being part of the squad for this tournament, and I'd like to thank MCC for offering me the chance to play out in Dubai again. There are some great players in the squad so we stand a good chance of winning the competition. I've got fond memories of playing against MCC in the Lord's Bicentenary match last year and I'm delighted to be involved with the Club again," Yuvraj said.
