Yuvraj Singh has cracked a double century on Day 2 of the Duleep trophy semifinal fixture against Central Zone in Hyderabad on Monday.

The southpaw has made a strong statement of sorts, laying claim to a spot in the Indian Test team with a superb performance on his return to first class cricket after undergoing treatment for cancer.

Yuvraj scored 208 (241b, 4X33, 6X3) while helping North Zone to a first innings total of 451.

His innings ended after Murali Kartik caught him off his own bowling.
