New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh is not featuring in the ongoing Ranji Trophy match between Punjab and Andhra Pradesh to attend the wedding reception of former teammate and friend Harbhajan Singh.
According to a report in Tribune News Service, Yuvraj informed the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) that he would not be able to represent Punjab in their next match as he would be attending Harbhajan's marriage reception ceremony in Delhi.
Apart from Harbhajan’s Team India teammates like Yuvraj and Virat Kohli, Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachhan, Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra are also likely to attend the reception in the capital on November 1.
Gurkeerat Singh Mann is captaining Punjab in replace of Yuvrj Singh.
Harbhajan will soon return to Ranji Trophy, where he would take over the Punjab captain's mantle from his deputy Yuvraj Singh.
Meanwhile, India are struggling to slot an experienced batsman at number five, six or seven who can soak in pressure and do the finishing job.
Yuvraj, who has just played a knock of 187 in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, is an option for selectors but they again chose to ignore him.
