Another Kohli special in a big chase. Raina is batting well at the other end.
It’s Yuvraj Singh’s first innings for India since 2014.
The last time he played at the international level Yuvraj scored 11 off 21 in the final of the T20 World Cup. Strike rate – 52.
He was dropped from the team for nearly two years because India had lost a world title. Some heads had to roll.
But he made his way back to the team. He sat with his pads on, watching the kids feast on the bowling for two games.
When he finally got to bat in the last game of the tour, he scratched his way to 5 off 9 balls. Strike rate – 55.
India need 17 runs need off the final over.
What goes through his head? The situation is pretty similar to the last time he was at the crease.
Does he remember the 11 off 21? Am sure he does. It must still hurt.
But if he remembers that, surely he remembers the Natwest series final at Lords? Hitting Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over? Being man of the tournament in two of India’s World Cup wins? Surviving cancer?
First ball – flicked for four.
Second ball – smashed over the longest boundary in the ground for six.
India win the T20 series against Australia 3-0.
Yuvraj Singh is back.
