Fab Four of Indian cricket to make a comeback?
Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan - heroes of India’s World Cup triumph in 2011 - are set to make a comeback. However, this may well turn out to be their farewell series.
According to a report in ‘Mail Today’, the Board of Control for Cricket in India are contemplating to bring in the Fab Four for the upcoming series against Bangladesh. The Indian cricket board is planning to give them a fitting farewell.
Poor form, fitness concerns and rise of other youngsters sidelined the quartet from Team India. While Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan briefly made a comeback, their patchy form ruled them out from a regular place in the team. Sehwag, on the other hand, struggled to regain his spot after being dropped.
The daily quoted a senior BCCI official who said, “What they have done for Team India in the past decade will be hard to match. But as is the case with every sport, time does catch up with you. So we are thinking about giving them an opportunity to go to Bangladesh and sign off on a high…. Some people may term it an emotional decision, but so what? But yes, the idea needs the approval of national selectors.”
