The BCCI secretary, Niranjan Singh, said a fitness report on Yuvraj was with the Board. "I have got first-hand report on Yuvraj's fitness and he seems to have recovered. The report of the physiotherapist would be taken into consideration when the selection committee meets here tomorrow."
Yuvraj's availability leaves the selectors with a dilemma for second Test. Mohammad Kaif, who was his replacement for Nagpur, was India's leading batsman in the first innings with a career-best 91, which makes it very hard for the selectors to leave him out.
The man under most pressure now is VVS Laxman. He was trapped lbw first ball, by Matthew Hoggard, in the first innings and could very well be batting for his Test place as India fight for a draw on the final day.
