"Yuvraj Singh's return to the national squad will gladden India's cricket fans. Commentators have gone ecstatic describing what they are calling a heroic comeback. It is, in many ways, India's Lance Armstrong moment, when one of its most talented sportsmen has returned to the national team after battling cancer."
He was player of the tournament as his country
won the 50-over World Cup last year,
with his last limited-overs game being the final against Sri Lanka, although he featured in three Tests later in 2011.
"He is a very crucial factor. If he gets going, he can win matches single-handedly. Don't forget he was the man of the series in the 2007 [Twenty20] World Cup and the 2011 [50-over] World Cup," added Srikkanth.
"He fought his way back and we really appreciate the kind of effort put in by Yuvraj Singh. He will be a great factor and it's good to see him back in the team."
