Yuvraj back in Indian test squad

6:00 am on 6 November 2012

The Indian cricket all rounder Yuvraj Singh has been selected for the first two home tests against England, capping a fairytale comeback from cancer at the start of the year.

Yuvraj, who will turn 31 next month, was treated in the United States for a rare form of lung cancer earlier this year.

He returned to international cricket in September in a Twenty20 match against New Zealand before playing in the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

The veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has also made the squad, for the first time since August last year.
