Chennai, Apr 16: Yuvraj Singh will miss his second straight game in IPL 2013, with his Pune Warriors team-mate Ross Taylor confirming that the injured all-rounder will not be part of the playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday (April 17).
Yuvraj missed out on Pune's win over two-time winners Chennai Super Kings last night due to injury.
"I am not sure right now. He is not going to be playing in the next game but hopefully he is ready for the game after that," Taylor said after his side's win.
Standing in for regular skipper Angelo Mathews, who is not entitled to play in Chennai due to a ban on Sri Lankan players, Taylor led Pune to a comfortable win over Chennai despite missing a player of Yuvraj's class.
"Obviously, Yuvraj is a big part of our team and it affects the balance of our team when Yuvi doesn't play. He is a world-class player and hopefully he can come back as soon as possible," Taylor said.
