At close of play on day two of the Ranji Trophy match between UP and Punjab, Yuvraj Singh  and Mandeep Singh were the batsmen for Punjab. The former was batting on 72 and once again looked set for a big score. His runs came a quick pace in Hyderabad.

On day three, Yuvraj once again continued his innings and began with some fluent boundaries. His innings was cut short when he was caught by Eklavya Dwivedi off Imtiaz Ali. But his innings once again showed Yuvraj of old.

It has been the case in this Ranji season in which Yuvraj has already scored three centuries and looks in fine form for Punjab. His first such innings was on a green top in Lahli against Madhya Pradesh.

Yuvraj scored a magnificent 177, an innings that brought him praise from everyone in the cricket fraternity and his fans. He followed it up with a 76 in the second innings, an equally important and inspiring innings. The fact that it was played in Lahli, a pitch known to assist pace bowlers, adds to the amount of effort he would have to put in it.

Then came the big one in New Delhi. Manan Vohra had led Punjab to a big score with his maiden first-class century. For company, he had Yuvraj at the other end. He also had crossed the 100-run mark.

But next day, Yuvraj scored a double century against the Baroda attack. The innings further asserted that he belongs to the cricket scene. Playing in the national team is a big achievement but to continue performing when not selected is a tough task that Yuvraj has pulled off nicely this season.

Against UP, he could have had a consecutive hundred but fell short by 15 runs. Punjab won’t mind it as long as their captain continues to score runs even if he doesn’t get those big hundred. And neither will Yuvraj.
