“Weather a worry in deciding India-New Zealand T20”
Match facts:
September 11, 2012
Start time 19:00 local (1330 GMT)
6pm: Good day everyone. Let's get straight to the weather. No rain. Good start to the evening. It was pouring yesterday, and I was told this morning was a bit overcast too in parts, but no issues at the moment. Yuvraj Singh might stage his comeback in India after all.

A phrase that has found its way into cricket jargon of late is "controlling the controllables". One thing neither team, the fans or the organisers have been able to control is the rain. It has been an unwelcome visitor is all three matches on the tour so far, more so in Visakhapatnam, where thousands made their way to witness the city's first Twenty20 international and Yuvraj Singh's comeback from cancer. Southern India has been hit by showers over the last few weeks, and the venue for the final T20, Chennai, has had its share of rain too. The weather has reduced the Twenty20 series to a one-match shoot-out. Both teams will agree that even a completed T20, without interruptions, won't count as sufficient match practice ahead of the World T20.

Much then would depend on the two warm-up games in Sri Lanka before the big event.
One player who will be itching to get out there is Yuvraj. Ideally, he would like to stage his comeback in India and, possibly, put an end to all murmurs regarding his match fitness. Spare a thought for the Twenty20 specialists who have flown in from New Zealand for what is effectively a one-match series. Daniel Vettori, for all his experience, needs match time to ease himself back in from a groin injury. New Zealand would want to play their best side, but that would mean their relatively inexperienced players, like Ronnie Hira and Adam Milne, may not be guaranteed a spot. India have tried out three different opening combinations in their last three T20 matches, with Ajinkya Rahane and Robin Uthappa partnering Gautam Gambhir in two of those games. They are expected to go with their regular pair of Gambhir and Virender Sehwag here, and both are struggling for consistency.

Watch out for
He may have slipped slightly as a wicket-taker in Tests, but Daniel Vettori has plenty to offer in T20s as a containing bowler, as his economy rate of 5.36 in 28 T20s indicates. With Jacob Oram, who kept batsmen quiet in the SLPL with an economy rate of 3.82, Vettori will be called on to squeeze the runs.
R Ashwin tormented New Zealand with 18 wickets in two Tests, and those who have faced him in the IPL will be aware of his skills in the shortest format. In 23 matches for Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Ashwin has 27 wickets, the second-highest wicket-taker for the franchise at the ground over three seasons.

Stats and trivia
The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai will be hosting its first Twenty20 international.
Chennai had its share of high-scoring games during the 2012 IPL, with a season run-rate of 8.01. Super Kings' 222 for 5 against Delhi Daredevils in Chennai was the highest team score for the tournament.
In the 2012 IPL, spinners accounted for 33 wickets in Chennai, second only behind Eden Gardens (34).

Waiting for Yuvi:
Ostensibly Saturday's match in Visakhapatnam will be between India and New Zealand. I suspect though that 21 of the 22 players on the field will find themselves largely irrelevant as everyone gets engulfed by the hugely emotional return of Yuvraj Singh to a cricket ground.

India Vs New Zealand 2nd t20 Yuvraj Singh 

Though sport is normally played hard, by people unwilling to concede an inch, you can never divorce it from emotion. And I'm sure it will be that way when Yuvraj takes the field, for his sheer presence, a tribute to what modern medicine and the human spirit can combine to achieve, will stir the feelings like few events in cricket have in recent times. It will tug at the heart. New Zealand will seek to get him out first ball but they will be moved too.

It was an unusual selection, though, for Yuvraj hasn't played a game since chemotherapy ate at his strength but, by all accounts, left his resolve untouched. Ordinarily you would have thought that he needed a couple of games to show if the strength had returned and if he was hitting a ball well enough to keep another player out. It was clearly an emotional selection but also one of solidarity with someone who had played outstandingly for India. I don't think either Australia or, in the present dispensation, England would have picked him as quickly but Indians are an emotional people and you will hardly find anyone contesting his selection.

If Yuvraj is indeed fit and on his way to being the player he was, he changes the balance of the Indian team completely. He did that at the World Cup, when he became the allrounder India were looking for. By doing that he gave India an extra slow-bowling option and allowed a batsman to play at No. 7. In T20 cricket he only needs to bowl four overs, or even three or two.
I will also be watching to see how MS Dhoni handles him. Will he straightaway slot him in at No. 4, which is where he belonged in T20 cricket? Will he slot him in as the fifth bowler straightaway? Or will he let him ease his way in? Knowing Dhoni, I won't be surprised if Yuvraj bowls the first over!
That said, I will be very interested in seeing how he approaches playing for India again. He could get caught up in the moment, play the dramatic hero back from the brink, try too hard to make a statement - indeed, try too hard to prove that he is back to being the player he was. It's a tough one but I hope he doesn't, because then his head could be full of a million thoughts swirling uncontrollably, the mind jumping from one objective to the other and fatally letting the present disappear. Nobody will let him forget the significance of the moment but, peculiarly, he will need to if he has to make the best of it.
I remember talking to Nasser Hussain a couple of years ago about handling pressure, and he spoke of how the very best realise they need to do something special and yet are able to treat the moment like any other. I'm sure surgeons have to do that as they approach a life-saving procedure, engulfed by an overwhelming need to be perfect and yet not letting the pressure come in the way of achieving perfection: of knowing it is important and yet pretending it isn't. Lawyers probably need to feel that way on big days, and I know television anchors need to.
Alternatively, Yuvraj can be the kid on the park, just enjoying chasing a ball and hitting it and looking at every moment as another chance. He can play with freedom, look pressure in the eye and say to it, "Go some other place. I am only playing cricket." Keith Miller said famously after the war that pressure was a Messerschmitt up your backside, that playing cricket was just a celebration.
I hope Yuvraj looks at the rest of his playing career as a celebration, as a lifeline thrown his way. I don't know if he will ever be as good as he was, if he can get your heart racing again by the majesty of his strokeplay. But if he can play like he belongs, that's all he needs - he will tell the world a great story.
I will expect nothing from him, just will him on.
For Live Match Watch This
Rain wipes out first Twenty20:
The thousands who thronged the ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam to watch its first ever Twenty20, and Yuvraj Singh's long-awaited comeback from cancer, had to go home disappointed as rain had the final say. Persistent rain in the evening meant that the toss was itself a non-starter. The match was called off without a ball bowled nearly an hour and 30 minutes after the scheduled 7pm start.
There was some consolation for the crowd, though, as Yuvraj made an appearance to loud cheers when he was felicitated by the local association, despite the drizzle. The rain has been a continuing trend in this tour. The Tests at Hyderabad and Bangalore had weather interruptions, but India managed to secure wins in both. The teams will now head to Chennai for the second and final Twenty20 on Tuesday. From the teams' perspective, the rain couldn't have come at a worse time, given that the World Twenty20 is only a couple of weeks away. They will hope for better weather in Chennai, or risk going to Sri Lanka short on T20 practice.
