India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who has been dropped from the first two Tests against Australia, is happy about the inclusion of his friend and Punjab teammate Harbhajan Singh. India will play the first of the four Test series against Australia in Chennai on February 22

“I think it’s a great achievement if he (Harbhajan) plays his 100th Test (in Chennai). Harbhajan has been a great bowler for India.

“He is also been contributing with the bat, so I am really happy for Harbhajan and hope he does well in this series,” Yuvraj said during a promotional event yesterday.

Talking about the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Yuvraj said: “I just think it’s going to be a good series.”

Yuvraj, who recovered from a rare germ cell cancer, attributed running for his weight loss. “Post my return to cricket, my fitness has been great. I have been training hard for the last six-eight months. Running has helped me shed 12-13 kgs.

“I am really peaking well in fitness and hopefully in the next couple of months I will work a little hard and get super fit,” he signed off.
