Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh is all set to make a strong show and fetch his spot back in the Indian squad when he plays against Mumbai.
Yuvraj was reportedly very disappointed after being ignored by the BCCI selectors for the tour against Australia but wants to make full use of the opportunity to earn the trust of the selectors.
"Yes I am disappointed but it is good too. It makes you more determined and hungry to make a comeback. I had taken a month long rest and now I am eager to comeback into top gear. It is the season's first game and I want make best out of it," he said after a batting session.
Yuvraj fees he has the upcoming India-Australia series will be a tough one.
"India and Australia are top two test sides in world. They will come strongly at us. It is going to be a tough series," he said.
Talking about the Irani trophy match, Yuvraj said Mumbai were a tough team to play against.
"They have a balanced side and they play cricket hard way. It is not going to be easy."
Talking about the wicket at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium he said,"I have played at this stadium a number of times. This is season's first match and I am yet to have a look at the wicket. But experience says that it is two paced and we will have to get the partnerships going to build the innings."
The Mumbai team, which arrived on Tuesday, also had a practice session while a few of the Rest of India players also had good practice session on the field.
