Mumbai, Nov 21: Yuvraj Singh, who made a comeback to Test cricket after more than year, said that he was "really upset" that he could not convert the half century against England in Ahmedabad into a hundred.

Yuvraj was 'really upset' in Ahmedabad

Yuvraj, who made 74 in the first innings of Ahmedabad Test against England, was looking good for a three-figure mark but was dismissed after failing to put away a full toss ball from spinner Samit Patel.

The left-hander could have hit that ball into the stands but mistimed to long-on where Graeme Swann took a catch.

Speaking to Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) official website, Yuvraj said he was "really upset" at missing out on Test century.

"It was a good start but I should actually have scored a hundred in the first innings. I was really upset when I got out on 74. Once you get set, you have to go and score a big one. But unfortunately I couldn't do that," Yuvraj told bcci.tv.

Also he said that he was not thinking of the past and wants to look ahead.

"There's no point looking back and thinking about what people think of me. I'm back into the team and it's time for me to look forward," he said.

On the comeback to Test cricket, he said: "It's wonderful to be back in whites. I cherish this experience and playing Test cricket for India is something that I have cherished all my life."

India-England second Test begins in Mumbai on November 23.
