Yuvraj, Harbhajan prepare for World T20

Bangalore, Aug 31: India's Twenty20 players started training at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) here on Friday.

Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and five other players are at the NCA to prepare for the forthcoming two-match T20 series against New Zealand and next month's ICC World Twenty20 2012 in Sri Lanka.

The two T20s against New Zealand are on September 8 (Visakhapatnam) and September 11 (Chennai).

The players apart from Yuvraj and Harbhajan at the camp, are Irfan Pathan, Ashok Dinda, Manoj Tiwary, Laxmipathy Balaji and Rohit Sharma.

The left-handed Yuvraj has returned to India team after recovering from a rare germ cell cancer for which he had to undergo chemotherapy in the US.

Offspinner Harbhajan too is making a comeback to the national side after being ignored for more than a year. Harbhajan was in England recently, playing for Essex county.

Paceman Balaji is also another comeback man. His fine performances with ball in the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League, helped him to get back to the squad.
Balaji was one of the main players who took Kolkata Knight Riders to IPL 5 title win.

As India and New Zealand battled it out in the second and final Test of the series at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, in the same premises T20 cricketers trained.

They were at the Karnataka State Cricket Association's (KSCA) ‘B' ground.
