Mumbai: Chairman of India's selectors, Krishnamachari Srikkanth has admitted that Yuvraj Singh, after his back-to-back hundreds against England, had perhaps left a lot of other players who were in contention for a place in the Indian team, behind, and was now front-runner for the place left vacant by the retirement of Sourav Ganguly.

"I see Yuvi [Yuvraj Singh] as a potential match-winner in Tests too. Over the years, he has already shown he's a match-winner in ODIs," Srikkanth told the Telegraph.
"There are others in the running as well (for Ganguly's slot), but Yuvi is definitely a front-runner."

On Yuvraj's two hundreds - at Rajkot and at Indore on Monday, Srikkanth said, "He has been brilliant. Rajkot had a batting track, but the Indore wicket was on the slower side and Yuvi had to first hold the innings together. He proved that he can be a match-winner from any situation."
