Two days to the first test at the Kotla, and providence has taken a hand in deciding Yuvraj's fortunes. Though there isn't much clarity on Dhoni's ankle and whether he will play, that might just be the leg in that Yuvraj needs.
If Dhoni doesn't play, India won't need a replacement keeper. Karthik is available and most willing. Then all Yuvraj needs to do is to put down a substantial innings which might nudge the selectors towards 'resting' Ganguly or Laxman in the games to follow.
