NEW DELHI: All-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who remained out of action after being injured during the recently-concluded World Twenty20, is eyeing to make a return for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against Gujarat Lions on May 6.

The left-handed explosive batsman, who was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs. seven crore at this year's auction, suffered the injury during India's pulsating final group-stage match against Australia in the World T20 in Mohali last month.

Reflecting on his sudden exit from the World T20, Yuvraj said that he had prepared extremely hard for the prestigious tournament, adding that it was frustrating to bow out from the side ahead of the semi-finals.

Yuvraj, who has declared himself fit again, also hinted on his possible return in Test cricket later this summer.

He said that he has been performing well from the last two seasons of the Ranji Trophy and insisted that he would surely like to play again in the longest-format of the game if he would be given opportunity in the coming season.

Lavishing praise on Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli, the 34-year-old said that he has been performing consistently well and is getting better with each passing day. He added that Kohli had won a lot of games for India in the World T20, but his side failed to capitalize on it.
