While most of us were waiting for Virat Kohli’s official announcement as captain of the Indian Cricket team, a major chunk of the limelight was hogged by Yuvraj Singh, who made a well deserved comeback into the national team set up. Yuvraj is part of both, the T20 and the ODI squad. His selection comes off as no surprise, as he has had a stellar season for Punjab in the Ranji trophy.
Cricket fans, experts and analysts took to Twitter to express their utmost pleasure on seeing India’s golden boy return to the limited overs side. Here we capture some of the best twitter reaction to Yuvi’s selection.

.@YUVSTRONG12 back in ODI & T20 teams. Like a belated wedding gift from selectors. Deserves a back present: loads of runs and matches won!

MS Dhoni steps down as skipper and 48 hours later Yuvraj Singh is back in the limited overs team. That's some strange coincidence

We really hope Yuvraj can cement his place in the side, especially in the ODIs, and have a chance of representing the country in the Champions’ Trophy and in the 2019 World Cup. Interesting times ahead for Indian Cricket
