Dada worried about Yuvraj playing T20 WC

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is nervously hoping for Yuvraj Singh’s success in the Twenty20 World Cup and says two Internationals against New Zealand before the mega event should give a fair idea of how much the southpaw has recovered from cancer.

“The two matches against New Zealand will give us an idea of how much he has recovered. It would be wrong if I say I am not worried about his health.

However, I am really happy that he has come back from a tough phase. I am sure he must be thrilled too,” said Ganguly at a promotional event for the World T20 beginning in Sri Lanka from September 18.

‘Bhajji deserves to play in all formats’
Meanwhile, Ganguly feels that Harbhajan Singh has been kept away from the national team for too long and he deserves to play for it in all three formats. “I feel he is still one of the top-three spinners in India. He should not have been out for more than six months. Someone who has almost 700 international wickets to his name would walk into any side.”
