Veteran India batsman Yuvraj Singh back with the bang! Yes, he returns to the India cricket team after a long wait and today he justified his selection with his brilliant century against England in the second ODI at Cuttack. Yuvraj slammed his career’s 14th ODI century and scored maiden 150 runs in his ODI career.
Yuvraj at the age of 35 got his maiden 150 runs in his ODI career for the first time. Former Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni hammered his 10th One-day International century and both batsmen put the 250 runs partnership to guide India to 381 after a rare top order collapse in the match.
While Yuvraj scored his career’s highest total in ODI, MS Dhoni completed his 4000 runs and became the only second Indian batsman to score as many runs in the ODIs after the master Sachin Tendulkar. Dhoni and Yuvraj gave 256-run partnership for the fourth wicket.
