"He has always been a very special player for India. I am not saying this because he is my son but because I have coached him. I always knew he was going to make a comeback because of the way things were going. I think the best thing that has happened to him is that both Yuvraj and Hazel are on the same level as far as fitness is concerned," Singh said.
"His comeback was always on the cards. When he was dropped I was very much hurt because such great players cannot be dropped just after few bad innings. You got to push them up. A player must be pushed ahead when they are going down and I wish him (Yuvraj) all the best and I hope he wins lots of matches for India," he added.
Out-of-favour batsman Singh has made a comeback to Indian team as he has been included in the 15-member squad for the upcoming three-match T20 series against Australia.
However, the stylish left-hander was not selected for the five-match ODI series, starting from January 12.
Yuvraj last played a T20I for India in the 2014, the ICC WT20 Final in Bangladesh, a match that India lost by six wickets.
