After nearly a 3-hour delay for start of meeting, BCCI's selectors unveiled the Indian ODI, T20I squads for the home series against England.

Yuvraj had been making the right noises in the domestic circuit with his impressive performances in the Ranji Trophy, but he was ignored during New Zealand series.

The veteran Punjab batsman, who got married in November last year, had admitted that he was still hopeful of playing for Indian national cricket team despite being ignored repeatedly.

Yuvraj was part of the Indian side during World T20 2016 and played his last international game against Australi at Mohali, during the ICC tournament.

Yuvraj slammed career-best 260 against Baroda in the Ranji Trophy 2016-17 season. Earlier, he also played a superb knock of 177 at Lahli on October 14 against Madhya Pradesh at the Chaudhry Bansi Lal Cricket Stadium in Lahli.
