The four-match Test series between India and England starts next month at Ahmedabad, with the Men in Blue looking to avenge their last year’s whitewash in England.
The left-handed batsman from in September. The stroke-player contributed with both bat and ball in the
just-finished World T20 2012 as well, although his side failed to qualify for the semi-finals.
Apart from playing a couple of important cameos, the 30-year-old cricketer picked up eight wickets in the tournament, filling the role of a fifth bowler in the Indian side.
The middle-order batsman is now all set to represent North Zone in Trophy, looking to score some runs and catch the eyes of the selectors ahead of the all-important battle against the Poms.
Yuvraj is still not hundred percent fit and may take a little more time to achieve the level of fitness required at the ultimate stage of the game; however, the left-hander is confident about doing well in the 5-day format as
well, although it can be more taxing for the players.
"Duleep Trophy matches will be very important for me as it will be a good preparation before tour. I am looking forward to these matches and if I perform consistently I can get back into the Test team," he said.
"It will be difficult playing the longer version of the game but I am confident I'll last the duration."

"I am also going to focus on my bowling too and look forward to make it to the Indian team as an all-rounder, not just a specialist batsman," the dashing player mentioned.
