NEW DELHI: India on Friday selected cancer survivor Yuvraj Singh for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, four months after he was treated for a rare tumour between his lungs.
The 30-year-old left-hander, one of the most flamboyant batsmen in world cricket, was named in a 15-man squad for the tournament to be played from September 18 to October 7.
Yuvraj played a key role in India’s 50-over World Cup triumph last year, scoring 362 runs and taking 15 wickets in nine matches to be named the man of the tournament.
He rose to fame when he smashed England’s fast bowler Stuart Broad for six sixes in one over during the inaugural World Twenty20 in South Africa in 2007, which India went on to win.
