Baroda Cricket Association have recalled Yusuf Pathan for the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy Tournament. Pathan was a last minute addition to the squad after being dropped in the list of probables.

According to IndianExpress, BCA joint secretary Snehal Parikh, said: “The selectors included his (Yusuf) name today in the Baroda squad for Vijay Hazare Trophy. But his inclusion was subject to him clearing his fitness test.”

When further probed about Yusuf’s not being named in the probables, Parikh said: “It’s a selection committee decision and I’m not going to reveal what happened inside the meeting.”
