The National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore has sent a report to the BCCI, which has paved way for Yuvraj to make a return to the Indian team, according to NDTV.
The sources informed that Yuvraj has been declared fit by the BCCI doctors, who have also submitted his fitness report.
"It will depend on the fitness certificate that he will get from the NCA," a selection committee source told PTI.
A few days ago, BCCI official and IPL governing council chairman Rajeev Shukla on Tuesday said the BCCI were satisfied with the improvement shown by Yuvraj Singh and is hopeful of his availability during the upcoming World Twenty20 Championship in Sri Lanka.
"We (BCCI) are very happy with Yuvraj's recovery. He has been practising hard at the National Cricket Academy for the past one month. The physios and the trainers are keeping a close watch on him," Shukla said at the promotional event regarding Champions League Twenty20.
"We are hopeful about his availability for the World Twenty20 but then again, it will be the prerogative of the selectors. They will take a final call," he added.
India’s star all-rounder Yuvraj, who underwent treatment for a rare germ cell cancer between his lungs, took a giant leap towards his comeback to international cricket by playing his first practice match on Wednesday.
“Finally played my first practice game after 8 months! Got 47 of 70 balls bowled 5 overs fielded 30 overs! Not bad for a start !!,” an elated Yuvraj shared his happiness with his followers on Twitter.
Yuvraj, who has been training hard to attain fitness, was included him in the 30-member squad for T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.
