It was Yuvraj, however, who stole the limelight. He was cautious with his shot selection as he took 39 balls for his first boundary. He reached his fifty in 60 balls with one boundary and two sixes. Thereafter, he slammed as many as five fours and three sixes in just 20 balls en route his first century of the season and his 17th ton in List 'A' matches.


Yuvraj along with discarded seniors Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan have been handed lifelines by the selectors by including them in the India ‘A’ side across the formats against the West Indies ‘A’.

Earlier this year, he was dropped after the home series against England due to fitness issues. Yuvraj and Zaheer had trained extensively at Brive La Gaillarde, a town in France, for six weeks to get back their fitness.
