Yuvraj Singh is prepared to return after his retirement and start up again in the domestic circuit. He is going to finally make a comeback in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. The 39-year-old has been named in the list of 30 probable members for the upcoming Syed Mushtaq T20 tournament. 

The power hitter waved goodbye to international cricket in June 2019. However, he has decided to return for domestic cricket at the request of the Punjab Cricket Association Secretary.

Puneet Bali, the secretary of the Punjab Cricket Association, approached the all-rounder to resume playing for his home state. Yuvraj was the most crucial pillar of the team in 304 ODIs, 40 Tests, and 58 T20Is. The cricketer has been training at PCA Stadium Mohali for quite some time now. He has been posting his activity on social media.

Yuvraj is currently sweating it out at the nets to prepare for the upcoming season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. Other thirty Punjab cricketers have already been divided into two different groups for the preparatory camp going to be held in Ludhiana.

Yuvraj Singh was a part of the Global T20 League in Canada in 2019

Yuvraj was also a part of the Global T20 league in Canada after announcing his retirement. In the same way, left-arm pacer Barinder Sran, who was overlooked by Punjab’s Vijay Hazare Trophy team, is now named in the probable list.

The BCCI is looking forward to staging the national T20 championship from January 10, 2021. The event will take place inside a bio-secure bubble across six venues. Teams will assemble at their respective hubs by January 2, 2021.

Speaking about the recent developments in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, CSK batsman Ambati Rayudu has also been signed by the Andhra team. He is going to represent the state in the upcoming prestigious event. Rayudu was part of the team back in the 2005-06 season.

Indian pacer S Sreesanth is also going to make his return after being named in a 26-probable list by Kerala. The BCCI banned the 37-year-old over his alleged involvement in spot-fixing in the IPL. Sreesanth’s ban ended in September 2020. The pacer last represented India in 2011. He is going to take part in a preparatory camp in Thiruvananthapuram from December 20 to 30.
