The centre of attraction at the at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam would be the Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, who is appaearing for the first time after recovering from his germ cell cancer. Although he hasn't undergone much practice, but his mere presence will be source of inspiration for the rest of the team.
