Dressing room was boring without Yuvraj

Mumbai, Aug 17: Team India skipper MS Dhoni expressed his pleasure having Yuvraj back in the team as he said the dressing room missed Yuvraj Singh a lot and his presence would make it more livelier.

Dhoni, who was present at the T20 jersey launch, said that though Virat Kohli had taken up the responsibility, Yuvraj's absence was felt as he was not available for more than a year and a half, soon after the World Cup 2011 as he was diagnosed with a rare germ cell cancer, and the recovery process took more than 6 months as he resumed training recently.

"When Yuvraj was not there Virat had taken upon that job.

"We missed Yuvraj as a character in the dressing room apart from his batting skills. With him being back the atmosphere in the dressing room will become livelier again," he remarked.

Dhoni poured his heart out when he said the dressing room was really boring without Yuvraj, which showed how much the team and its skipper missed the flamboyant batsman.

Yuvraj, who was also present at the launch of the new jersey said, he was feeling good at the present as he has got another chance to play for the country.

"I am feeling good. I have worked hard for the last two months. I am nervous. I never thought I will get another chance (to play for India). I feel as if it is the first game for me," said Yuvraj Singh.

With the stylish left-hander back in the team, the dressing room atmosphere is sure going to be great, as Dhoni and Co also missed Yuvraj to a great extent.
