Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh expressed excitement at the prospect of seeing four ‘much-deserved’ players added to India’s squad for their white-ball series against West Indies.

Ahead of the series which starts on February 6, the BCCI announced the squad for the same. Yuvraj congratulated left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, spin-bowling all-rounders Washington Sundar, Deepak Hooda, and opening batter Ruturaj Gaikwad, for making it to the team.

Here’s Yuvraj Singh’s tweet:

Kuldeep returned to the squad after recovering from his injury. He had also fallen out of favour with the selectors but received a recall for the Windies series. Hooda, who last played for India in 2015, also returns to the setup.
