Yuvraj's comeback incredible: Ganguly

Kolkata, Sep 14: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly who had raised doubts over Yuvraj Singh's fitness earlier, said the stylish left-hander's comeback was incredible.

Talking to a Bengali news channel, Ganguly said that Yuvraj's comeback was incredible and was totally satisfied with the way he played against New Zealand in Chennai on Sep 11, 2012.

"It is incredible to say the least. In spite of lack of match practice there were glimpses of vintage Yuvraj in the match. He looks fit and his performance will only improve with time. it was a very satisfying knock," Ganguly told a regional news channel in Kolkata on Thursday.

Yuvraj who was seen in action after a year, made a valiant 34 off 26 balls against New Zealand in Chennai earlier this week which impressed everyone as he returned to the national side after battling cancer.

Ganguly who had also raised doubts over his health and fitness, was extremely happy with the southpaw's comeback as Ganguly also said that Yuvraj's performance would improve during the World T20.

Moreover, he was very happy for Yuvraj who chose to play T20s first, as he would be spending only 3-4 hours on the ground, so that he can take some time to adapt himself to the other formats of the game, as his health was the only concern.

"T20 is ideal platform for him to start his comeback as he will spend only 3-4 hours on the field. The mental and the physical exertion will be less when compared to the longer formats of the game," said Ganguly.

Talking about Yuvraj Singh and the soaring expectations on the cricketer, Ganguly said he has been there was a long time now, and is aware of the kind of expectations but was confident about his abilities ahead of the World T20.

"He is a proven performer and expectations have always been high from him. Not only the fans but the team will also expect consistent performance from him. He has played for a long time to be bothered by the burden of expectations," added Ganguly.
