Yuvaraj is Fit to Play 2nd ODI at Nagpur

Indian cricket skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said today said that flashy middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh has been confirmed fit for Nagpur ODI on Wednesday.

Addressing a press meeting on the eve of 2nd one-day, Dhoni said, "Yuvraj is fit for second ODI. His return will make major variation in the middle order."

Dhoni further said that dew factor will play major role in tomorrow's day-night encounter.

"During Challenger trophy we seen lots of dew in a match but there was no impact of dew in another match here. So it will be vital."

Reacting on ex- Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist proposal to promote himself up in the order, Dhoni said that it is impossible to disturb the current batting order.

Dhoni further said that Yuvraj's presence in the side will strengthen the batting and bowling department. "We have Sachin and Sehwag in opening order followed by Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj at No-3 and No-4 respectively. So there is no possibility for me to move myself up."

Indian skipper said that team's priority is to improve the bowling performance in the death overs.
