India in Australia 2011-12 January 13, 2012

Yuvraj Singh out of Australia ODIs

  shares 53

Yuvraj Singh has been ruled out of the one-day tri-series to be played in Australia following the ongoing Test series. ESPNcricinfo has learnt that he is yet to fully recover from the non-malignant lung tumour that has kept him out of the team since the home ODIs against West Indies. He has been training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, and while his condition is better since the time the tumour was discovered, he does not want to rush back into cricket until his recovery is complete.

Yuvraj hasn't played ODIs since his Player-of-the-Tournament performance in the World Cup. An injury kept him out of the tour of the West Indies, though, and his contribution to India's tour of England was cut short by a finger injury sustained during the Nottingham Test. He returned for the home Tests against West Indies, and was left out of the side for the third Test, in November. He asked the BCCI to not consider him for selection for the home ODIs against West Indies because he wanted time to regain fitness. He was not considered for the Test series in Australia, which India currently trails 2-0.

Yuvraj said he had been troubled by bouts of coughing and vomiting since the World Cup but had ignored the problem during the tournament, "assuming it was due to stress". Subsequent tests revealed "a golf-ball sized" growth on his left lung. He went through several rounds of medical procedures in order to ascertain the exact nature of the tumour, which was eventually found to be non-malignant. Yuvraj had been targetting a comeback in the tri-series, also involving Sri Lanka, which kicks off on February 5, but is now unlikely to make a comeback until the Asia Cup in March.

    @ Arrow Bowman, mate there is nothing as god of cricket. Also there is a difference between the ability of playing against fast bowlers, medium pacers and spinners. Sachin is the best player against Warne, hands down. Excellent against Murli (Lara is the best) but unfortunately he was clueless against Saeed Ajmal. Coming to fast men. He avgs 36 and 37 against Wasim, McGrath, Donald and Ambrose. They are the giants of fast bowling. He avgs 27 against Shoaib Akthar (one on one avg) with around 8 to 10 dismissals in 20+ encounters. Bad. He plays very good against medium pacers and makes most of their bowling.But mate don't put numbers together to prove your point.My point is based on Analytical Stats, not just stats. So its not ignorance, its just that you don't comprehend it. LOLZ

    @Arrow Bowman. The God of cricket and the Wall of cricket might be the top 2 in the world, but a minor problem is that their current scores do not get determined by their past records. If that were the case, Sunil Gavaskar could find a place in the team.

    @Abhijeet1in

    Hi would suggest never to be nsensitive to someone's disease however minor it may be. Most tough thing for a man is to realise that he is not as fit as he thinks himself to be. No doubt Yuvi is one best sports person and offcourse has his own shortcomings as well. And it still more diffcult for him to realise this truth that he is not fit enough. It is this spirit of human that I am second to none, even his own glorious past, which keeps him to achieve better in life. So I absolutely see no malintentions in Yuvraj believing he is fit to go and want to roar, but then this mortal body has its limitations, specially when fighting a disease.

    My dear friend, I have experience what a non curable disease and how it hampers your life, but not to give in is human spirit to attempt and fall is human spirit, some fall on track some before reaching there!!

    One is truly shocked reading some of the heartless messages in here - here is a kid who has represented India with distinction for over a decade, having a tumour in his lungs and instead of wishing him well to regain his health they are tearing him down. Cricket is not everything in life, but life is everything. These people do not know what cancer does and hence have no right to even comment on the subject - lost both my parents to it and saw countless people struggling through everyday with this dreadful disease. I thank God that Yuvi's tumour is benign and will pray for his total recovery, cricket or no cricket. I want the kid to live a health life from now on. God bless!!!!

    @ALL YUVRAJ BASHERS . WHO THINK HE IS UNABLE TO SCORE RUNS ON GREEN PITCHES . HE HITS 6 SIXES IN AN OVER ON KINGSMEAD DURBAN WHICH IS ONE OF THE BOUNCIEST TRACK ON EARTH . HIS SECOND BEST INNINGS IN ODIS IS 139 AGAINST AUS AT BRISBANE IN 2004 WHICH IS ALSO A NATURAL FAST WKT . HE WAS THE HIGHEST SCORER FOR INDIA IN NATWEST SERIES IN ENGLAND IN 2002 WHICH INDIA WON .HE PLAYS HIS HEART OUT FOR THE TEAM . HE IS NOT A GOOD TEST PLAYER BUT IS AN EXCELLENT ODI CRICKETER .ALSO JUST BEFORE WC IN THE ODI SERIES IN SA HE PICKED 9 WKTS FROM 5 MATCHES & BOWLS 10 OVERS IN ALL MATCHES . HE IS A VERY GOOD ALLROUNDER .YOU AUSSIES NEVER RESPECT A PLAYER FROM OTHER COUNTRY .

    @ALL YUVRAJ BASHERS . HE HAS JUST RECOVERING FROM TUMOUR THAT'S WHY HE IS LEFT OUT . ALSO THOSE PEOPLE WHO THINKS THAT INDIA 'S PERFORMANCES IN ODIS WILL BE SAME AS THE TESTS DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING . EVEN IN ENGLAND WHEN OUR TEAM WAS WITHOUT 7 MAIN PLAYERS ,WE GAVE TOUGH COMAPETITION TO ENGLAND IN ODIS .MY ODI TEAM : SEHWAG , SACHIN , GAMBHIR , KOHLI , ROHIT , DHONI , IRFAN PATHAN , HARBHAJAN /ASHWIN, ZAHEER KHAN , UMESH YADAV, PRAVEEN KUMAR (IF HE IS FIT).

    just few days back I have read on TOI that he is" raring to go", hmm, if he is truly recovering then good luck.at leas they can send Badri in his place and I am still not sure why the best batsman of Indian Test team - READ Ashwin- is sitting on the bench and Laxman is still playing instead of ROHIT.......well, Dhoni has no SPINE to drop these Laxmans, Sehwags when in fact he is not even playing well! I can't believe we are still banking on this ageless wonder SACHIN!!

  • POSTED BY abhijeet1in on | January 14, 2012, 4:42 GMT

    Do we even need to say it? Here comes IPL :). I mean was Yuvi getting treated at some government community dispensary for his tumour? I know it is a serious medical condition, but with good doctors (read: boatloads of money) around its very much curable and you definitely can predict when its gonna go away. Surely, he deserves all the rest and the blessings, but he shouldn't have declared himself fit if there was any doubt. This does not paint a good picture of indian cricket(ers). Hope he comes out of it well and a little braver.

  • POSTED BY on | January 14, 2012, 3:39 GMT

    The best team for the ODI series as per current form is - Robin Utappa, Sachin Tendulkar, Manish Pandey, Virat kohli, Rohit sharma, Suresh Raina , MS dhoni, R. Ashwin, Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Ishanth Sharma .... The reserves being Ajinkya Rahane, Gautham Gambhir, L.Balaji, S.Sreeshanth, Vinay Kumar..... Also the coach needs to be changed from the useless DUNCAN FLETCHER to some one filled with more enthu and more challenges like VIV RICHARDS or ADAM GILCHRIST. Duncan Fletcher is useless.

    Another player who is afraid of SHORT FAST STUFF. He can bully medium pacers on dead tracks and slow pitches which offer no challenge. Pit him against genuine fast bowler or a high class fast bowler on a good pitch (forget a bowler friendly pitch he is not the make for that sort of stuff) and he will jump all over the place. Yuvaraj,Raina,Ghambhir,Sehwag,Sachin and Dravid all have one big flaw,they cannot take on the short fiery stuff from quick bowlers.Time to put in players who are not afraid of fast men.See Hayden,Ponting and Gilchrist, they would never wear arm or chest guard,something which is a must for Indian batsmen.What a pity.

  • POSTED BY usernames on | January 13, 2012, 15:35 GMT

    The team for one-day is more or less decided, especially keeping in mind our selection processes; if Sachin "chooses" to play, he will get the nod, else Ajinkya Rahane, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Manoj Tiwary, Ashwin, Harbhajan, Irfan, Umesh, Zaheer, Praveen, Vinay/Aaron/Mithun.

    The playing XI, for most matches, would be something like (assuming Sachin doesn't play): Sehwag, Gambhir, Rahane, Kohli, Rohit, Raina, Dhoni, Jadeja/Ashwin, Umesh, Zak, Irfan/PK. If Sachin plays, take Rahane out of the side and send Gambhir to one down. Unless there is a major surprise or two, we would be seeing this XI play.
